Ahoy Corinthians, just a reminder that lift out is set for Saturday 19th October.
Could all boat owners please let me know ASAP what there intentions are for the winter and lift out so the harbour guys can organise the yard etc. Do you want to have your boat in the yard, leave on the pontoon for winter sailing or other arrangements etc.
Andy Gunn – Harbour Sec.
Don’t forget – the Parade of Sail Commodore’s Regatta is on Sunday 5th May, starting at 14:00.
This will be followed by a barbeque in the boatyard afterwards.

The 2019 Handbook is available to pick up at the Bell Block.
The sailing programme is also viewable on this website here
Our refuse collection day is now Wednesday (previously Thursday) – if you’re at the yard, make sure it’s put outside the gates. You’ll see that we now have a much larger wheelie bin but if you’ve bottles, aluminium cans or cardboard, please take them home and recycle them.
Get those sails laundered – only three months to go – Lift In will be Saturday 13 April
As you’ll all be looking for distractions in this cold weather with its long nights, we’ve added some winter events in the Bell Block involving splicing, knots and race officer duties to our calendar.
Thanks to Libby for the artwork…
Monday the 15th October saw the FCYC AGM and the stepping down of our Commodore Frank Martin. Frank’s tenure at the helm of the club has seen, arguably, the most significant step forward for the club in decades, in that we’ve finally secured a long term lease on the yard on Middle Pier.
Here’s Frank with the finance team, who’ve scraped enough together from an appreciative membership to present him with an ex-Commodore’s burgee. Fair winds, Frank!
