HSSC update Friday 16th March 2019

From the Club Sec.

Dear Members,

Mother's Day Carvery Lunch Sun 31 Mar - Bookings are now being taken for Mother's Day lunch - please book early!

AGM Saturday 13 Apr at 1800 - Please note the date and time for our forthcoming AGM. Agenda and supporting papers will be sent separately.

Boats Returning to the Water - As you are all aware this next 3 months are extremely busy with over 150 boats planned to re-launch and with short term lifts taking place. Please ensure the following:
· Cars parked in FB3 must not be in a position that obstructs the route for boat movements - this is happening too often and delays boat movement operations!
· Boats programmed for launching are to be ready in all respects for movement and launch with warps, fenders, anchors and chains at the ready - if boats are not ready your programmed lift may be deferred to a later date.

Boat Electric Cables - Members are reminded that if they unplug a boat to undertake work they are kindly requested to plug back in the cable they removed before they depart for the day. For boats in the marina electricity is charged until 31 Mar.

Berthholders Returning to Normal Berths - For those who have shifted berths over the winter, the marina staff will be in contact over the next couple of weeks to ask you to return to your normal berths allocated.

Dredging of the Midstream Channel - The dredge is expected to be complete on Mon 18 Mar.

Your Health and Safety is Important to us! - Please report any H&S breaches or recommended improvements and please follow the Club's H&S rules and guidance. If in doubt ask. Latest H&S leaflet for boats lifted and laid up can be downloaded below.

For those carrying out work on their boats please ensure you clean up any arisings resulting from the work - Please keep the site clean.

Car Parking in FB3 - Please note that use of the car park is for use on Hornet or JSASTC business only. We are seeing members park in Hornet/JSASTC and walk on foot into Gosport. Please do not abuse this parking privilege.

Reminder to Carry Membership ID - Please remember to carry your in-date Club ID cards at all times and to show to security staff on request. New 2019 stickers are available through the Office or behind the bar. If you require us to post to you please contact the Office.
