News & Events


Spring Meeting
 
This was scheduled for 4th April and will not take place. We may well provide Division Members with an email agenda/discussion paper with the facility for you to vote on important issues electronically.
 
The 2020 Season
 
Best (and possibly optimistic) advice is that we will still be subject to lockdown until nearly the end of June and all races scheduled up to and including 27th June are cancelled. The situation will be kept under regular review with a view to getting on the water ASAP. However, it is likely that four weeks notice will be required before formal racing begins so that boats are made ready, race teams organised and documentation(NoR etc) to suit circumstances is written.
 
We have XOD Week scheduled to commence on 11th July the end of June relaxation of lockdown regulations may still impact upon people within the "at risk group" and also "distance travelling" and it has therefore been decided that this open event ought to be postponed to either 12th September or 10th October and your Captain will put these dates to the Racing Sub-Committee for approval at a meeting to be held next week.
 
Keeping in Touch
 
There is an WhatsApp group providing XOD sailors with the opportunity of conversations with like minded individuals. Please provide Roy Froud with your mobile phone number and he will include you in the group.
 
 Summarisation of Your Boat
 
Advice from James Meaning:
"Obtain a couple of buckets of water and place them in your boat. Water can stay in buckets, bit poured into bilges is fine. Salt water is ideal, but boats are pickles in salt and won't rot out. Midges don't like salt water though.
 
Now is a good time to do it given the dry spell. Breathable or non breathing covers are fine either way. 3 buckets poured into bilges or a few buckets sitting inside should work ok too."
