Commodores Cruise this Sunday.

Cocktail 2

Hi all

Its is nearly time for the Commodores Cruise our annual sail out to Hoyle bank.

For those not familiar this is a whole day out on the estuary involving sailing, beer , sailing,  beer, sailing, beer,  food , fun and games.  Launching on the ebb tide we will sail out towards Hoyle bank which is just to the east of Hilbre Island.  Totally covered at HW the bank becomes exposed as the tide retreats.  We then occupy our own private island for several hours before the advancing tide gives us a cue to leave.  Our motor launch Dawpool will be stocked with beer,wine and the BBQ to make sure we are fed and watered.

With a full day sailing this is a great opportunity to swap boats with other members and get a taste of a different craft, or simply take in the sun and a few beers.  Quite often the most memorable day of the sailing calender I strongly advised you come and join in.

HW is 0736 so for those that wish to launch from the beach I suggest no later than around 0900 hrs with the last opportunity to launch from the end of the causeway no later than about 0930.

The evening HW is 2019 so we will be able to return around 1830 to 1900.

For those who wish to take part but are not intending to sail out there are two options.  You can jump on board a rib at the club or telephone the club event mobile and ask for a lift out from the beach at West Kirby.  The number is 07977 867445.

I hope to see you all on the bank this weekend.

Sunshine Saturday ! – 31st May

Mirror Open 2013Having let the rain give our boats a good wash, the sun is due to make a big return this Saturday !

Along with light winds it should be the perfect day to get out on the tide. From 1030 we’ll have some rigging coaching on the lawn supported by our good friend Alan from the RYA and our very own James.

We’ll then head onto the water for some big fun and some racing for all. With only a few weeks until the Mirror open this will be a perfect chance to get some practice in with our coaches on the water too, to help improve all our skills and offer some friendly advice.

Give me a call if you need anything: See you Saturday

ps Sunday is the long distance race so a great opportunity to get a club 16 out too.
