Storm Damage – Update

Following the storm and tidal surge that wreaked havoc in the boatyard yesterday PLEASE CHECK YOUR BOAT whether a dinghy or cruiser.  It would also assist the yard team if dinghy owners would consider taking their boat home temporarily until the yard has been made safe and securing chains replaced.

If there is sufficient demand, Jeremy Entwistle from GJW Insurance will kindly arrange for a boat repairer to come to the Sailing Club tomorrow morning (Saturday) to evaluate damage and estimate reserves for insurance purposes.  If you would like to be included in this process, please email Sue immediately

There is a working party organised for 09.00 tomorrow to clear the yard of debris etc.  If you are able to help, please do come down and bring shovels, spades, gloves etc.  Hot soup will be provided.

Finally, a big thank you to all who put in many hours of help yesterday in the cold and wet to minimise the damage to members’ boats.
