Report on Weekend events
Sunday’s sailing was cancelled because of wind and rain, we’ll have to reschedule the Balmerino barbecue.
Push The Boat Out event
We’re getting geared up for the Push The Boat Out Event. Thanks to everyone who has put around flyers or e-mail and social media messages, and who have volunteered to help in various ways.
There are still opportunities to be involved; the plan for the day is:
10:00 start setting up boats and safety boats
10:30 put up registration table and gazebo in front of safety boat shed
10:45 launch safety boat and boats
11:00 setup static boats and other publicity display
11:00 first guests arrive and are welcomed, registered and kitted up
11:15 onwards succession of guests taken out sailing
11:30 barbecue and refreshments selling starts
15:00 last chance for guests to have time for kitting up and sailing
16:00 formal end of day
16:15 recover and de-rig boats, put away kit, clean up etc
16:15 barbecue and refreshments still on the go for helpers
17:30 should be cleared up
As you can see, if you like chatting to people then welcoming and registration (Front of House) is your opportunity.
If you like rigging and de-rigging boats then come at 10:00 or 16:00 but you don’t have to spend the whole day at the event.
If you like sailing and are confident in taking guests on short trips then a shift as a competent helm or crew would be good.
Above all, come and make it a fun experience for both the general public and Members.
