Weekly news letter

5 August 2017

Dear Members,

Winter Lift Offer and Booking Form - Please find attached Winter Lift Offer and Booking form. Berthholders and Members are asked to submit their forms as early as possible and before 1 Sep even if you are yet to decide on your dates. Any spare capacity after Sep will be opened to SSA members. Copy of insurance and proof of ownership (if not already held) will be required. Please note that completed forms are required for all lifts.

Notice to Berthholders - It has come to our notice that some berthholders are becoming complacent when securing their boats in the Marina; this includes fendering when at times it is inadequate or fenders are out of position to be effective. I would be grateful if berthholders could ensure securing arrangements are adequate for the conditions. If in doubt the Marina staff are available to provide advice.

Rally to Bembridge 22,23 and 24 Sep 17 - Steve Holliman is planning a Hornet Rally to Bembridge and to enjoy the food festival over the same weekend. Details attached. If you wish to take part please pass your details to the office.
