2023 Sailing Season Programme Meeting

It’s time now to think about the coming season’s sailing programme. Last year’s pre-season meeting helped me a lot to set up the programme, which I hope you all enjoyed. For this reason, I would like to hold another meeting this year to see how you felt it went and what changes you might like to make to improve it.

Items I would like to discuss, include:
Long vs. short races
Length of series races
Race courses
Race Officer duties
Publishing of results and handicap adjustments
Wednesday evening coaching sessions
WhatsApp group communications
Joint RFYC/FCYC events
Sailing on Coronation day
Cruising in Company programme

To this end, I’ll be hosting a gathering in the Bell Block on Saturday 21st January at 11:00a.m to which you are all invited. The more of you who can manage it, the better the feedback. I hope to see as many of you there as possible.

FCYC Jumble 26th March

Ahoy Corinthians! We are holding a Boat Jumble sale at the yard on Saturday 26th of March, starting at 13.00hrs.

Time to clear out those garages, sheds, car boots, boat lockers and wherever you keep those boating bits n pieces no longer needed! Or try one of the Smij stall’s homemade cupcakes! 

Donations of £10 from sales at each stall will go to the RNLI.

Please note, all unmarked Tenders and Outboards in the yard and outboard shed will be sold at the FCYC stall, so get down to the yard before the 26th and make sure your belongings are clearly labelled to avoid having to buy them back at the jumble!
