Tynwald Fair

Sailing for the Disabled are having a stall at Twnwald Fair on Wednesday July 5.
We will be selling a variety of caps, beanies, clothing, bags and badges. Also there will be a mega bargain sale of out of date clothing.
Do come along and support us and maybe play a game. You could win a small or large teddybear or other prizes.
If you could spare an hour to help out we would be very grateful.
SEE YOU THERE supporting the charity.

Improving your skills

A DOZEN OR SO MEMBERS HAVE PARTICIPATED RECENTLY IN A MODULAR TRAINING PROGRAMME, AIMED AT INCREASING CONFIDENCE, COMPETENCE AND SAFETY, AS WELL AS ADDING TO THE ENJOYMENT OF SAILING FOR CREW AND CLIENTS.

FOUR OF US HAVE PROVIDED STATIC AND SAILING TRAINING MOST WEEKS FOR THE LAST FEW MONTHS, AND, TO MAKE IT WORTHWHILE AND PRODUCTIVE WE NEED TO KNOW WHAT YOU WOULD BE PREPARED TO DO.

THE MODULES LAST ABOUT 15 HOURS AND REQUIRE AROUND 6-8 ATTENDANCES TO COVER THEM ALL; SOME ARE ESSENTIAL, OTHERS DESIRABLE, DEPENDING UPON HOW FAR YOU WISH TO BECOME INVOLVED.

WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW:

  • WOULD YOU LIKE TO BECOME INVOLVED IN THE NEXT AUTUMN TRAINING PROGRAMME?
  • ARE YOU PREPARED TO COMMIT TO 4/5 EVENINGS AND 3-4 AFTERNOONS OVER A THREE MONTH PERIOD?
  • WOULD YOU LIKE TO PROGRESS YOUR EXPERIENCE BEYOND BEING A CREW/CARER?

JUST SEND ME AN E-MAIL TO crewtraining@manx.net  OUTLINING WHAT YOU’D LIKE TO DO, AND THEN THE TRAINING TEAM MAY DESIGN A PROGRAMME WITH DATES (AND ALTERNATIVES) FOR LATER THIS YEAR.

I LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU!

Speedseal Life

Speedseal life donated us very kindly their award winning KPM High Slip Bearing, which extends impeller life two to three times. The impeller is an important part of the engine cooling pump. The new Speadseal Life will make our boat a little bit safer.

How time flies!

How time flies ! The membership fee was due on the 1st April.  Please help our Membership Secretary by paying now. 

The membership fee is still set at a minimum of £10.  That is remarkably good value and not only does this cover your sailing but also your teas and coffees whilst you are out sailing. 

 If you pay by cash it would be most helpful if you were to start paying by Standing order, this saves you the effort paying each year and also helps the Membership Secretary.    That must be a win- win. The SO form is available here

The address to send your money and completed Standing order form to is: Monica Clark, 42 Wybourn Drive, Onchan, IM3 4AN
