Dear Dinghy Sailors,

We are rapidly reaching the end of the season. There are 3 GC races scheduled, one at 1730 on September 12th (this Thursday) and 2 on September 22nd. I will cover safety boat this Thursday as the McNaughtons will be away (and are no longer dinghy sailors).

I suggest we cancel the final 2 races on 22nd as Mike Ashton and Paul Cracknell are both listed for duties but are the only dinghy sailors who have regularly turned up to race! John Bradley, who is scheduled as safety boat helm that day, has also given up dinghy racing and is not available, (and I will be driving my daughter to Sheffield).

ALL DINGHIES MUST BE REMOVED FROM THE YARD BY THE END OF SEPTEMBER SO THAT THE YARD CAN BE CLEAR FOR CRUISERS TO COME ASHORE.

If you have kept a dinghy in the yard this season but did not add your name to the storage list at the start of the season, please let me know so that I can pass your details on to Tim who will bill you for storage.

I will be sorting out a date for the end of season dinghy forum as soon as I know when the cruiser and yawl forums are scheduled. I hope that as many dinghy sailors as possible (cruisers and racers) will come along as we need to discuss the future of dinghy sailing at Topsham.
