Pre Season Update

With the sailing season nearly upon us I thought I would update you with whats happening at the club.
Since the storm wiped out our pontoon in January we have been very busy getting things in place so that it can be restored to its former glory. We are having new flooring placed on the ramp section to stop the wind getting underneath the pontoon. The existing piles are being straigthened, new piles being installed on the upstream side and the pontoon strenghtened with additional chains down each side. Everything is now in place for the work to commence and should be completed over the next few weeks.

We have also started work on the new accessible toilet and again this should be completed around the begining of April.

I would also like to remind you that membership fees were due in January and that your membership needs to be in place before you can sail or race at the club.

Finally I would like to thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you at the club soon.

HBSC Maylandsea Talk

We have been invited by the Harlow(Blackwater) SC in Maylandsea on 24th Feb at 19:30 Who are delighted to be welcoming Dick Holness from the East Coast Pilot website to talk about how the website came about and how it’s maintained, including all the useful pilotage notes which can be found there. As he’s coming a long way to join us, it would be great to have a good turn out for him.
If you’re unfamiliar with the website and it’s usefulness, here’s a link:

I am sure that most members are already aware that the pontoon suffered serious damage early yesterday morning in the high winds.

We would like to assure all members that we are taking all necessary steps to expedite appropriate repairs and modifications.

We will keep you updated.

I would like to say thanks to members and friends who helped out yesterday in making things secure, particularly to the guys from Rice and Coles, Mark Flynn for getting his rib muddy and Adrian Archer (who must have done the equivalent of 2 Maldon mud races).
