We have a large number of rigs in the container that appear to belong to club members (sails and foils). Unfortunately, we are currently unable to allow storage of private rigging at the club and need to reclaim the space.
Please contact Fiona or Marcus if any of it belongs to you to arrange collection. We need it moved by the 15th March please as we intend to have a clear out and reorganisation of our storage facilities.
As you are all aware, we recently had the engine stolen from one of our RIBs (the biggest and most powerful). This is devastating following two previous winters where the pontoon has suffered massive damage in high winds, costing us dearly. We also had gearbox failure on another RIB at the end of last season so are needing two new engines to enable us to get sailing in April.
We would be incredibly grateful if you would follow the link below read more about it and to donate. Every amount is hugely appreciated, no matter how big or small.
The Rotary Club of Burnham on Crouch and Dengie Hundred is hosting a Fund Raising Dinner at the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club with Hannah Stodel ( Paralympic Sailing Champion) as our guest speaker, www.hannahstodelracing.com. The idea is to raise money for The Little Havens Hospice, plus a contribution to help Hannah with the costs of her Vendee Globe entry in 2020.
