The SOAPs (Sailing OAPs) meet each Thursday at the club and complete a huge number of jobs to keep the club running smoothly and making the club a better place.

This sequence of pictures shows the recent activities to move the old pontoon in advance of the arrival of new pontoons and the repairs to Thumper.

Young and old alike are welcome to join in, so if you are at a loose end on a Thursday afternoon why not come down to the club to help out (and drink tea!).

**Updated**

Recent rain has raised the level of the lake significantly and the strong winds have blown a few boats over and ripped covers off.  You are advised to come and check on your boat to ensure it is secure.

The recent storms and high water resulted in the east pontoon going AWOL - drifting out into the middle of the lake.

But not to worry, the SOAPs were on the case, fuelled by copious quantities of tea the salvage operation was soon under way.

MSC Christmas Series

The 2013-14 Christmas mini series was a great success, with more than twenty intrepid sailors taking to the lake in conditions that varied from fair to wet and windy.

Roger in his Solo took honours on Boxing Day, leading from the front of the thirteen boats that made up the field, but in the larger fleet that took to the lake on the Sunday, could only manage a fourth, with Tim and his Phantom taking the points. With Ian Stone taking first on New Year’s Day, the series was wide open – but it was Tim who prevailed, with his best two out of three.

Special mention goes to Leo, one of our junior sailors who raced in his very first proper club race on New Year’s Day, in weather that only the very brave (or foolhardy) sailed in. Well done Leo!

 

MSC is offering a training course for the RYA Day Skipper Theory qualification.
