The 10 hour race is on Saturday 28th June, as ever it promises to be a fun day for all. The race starts at 9am and finish is at 7pm. A hog Roast supper has been organised for after the race, starting at approximately 7:30pm.
This year we are raising money for the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice in Farnham.
Please can you get in your entries and book your evening food as soon as you can to assist with the planning.
It will be good to raise a decent amount for Phyllis Tuckwell so please get a sponsorship form for you to record your sponsors. Remember to ask sponsors to record their address, post code and tick the box for Gift Aid in order to Phllis Tuckwell to get an extra 25p for each pound sponsored.
We also need volunteers to help with the running of the day as follows:
Safety boat qualified helms
Safety boat crews
People to monitor the race progress (using a simple to use program)
If you can help with any of the above then please let Stefan Bennett know.
Finally – We will be holding a Raffle on the day; first prize is free membership for 2014/2015 at the level you are currently at (excludes berthing fee) or one FREE RYA training course. If anyone is in the position to donate a prize then please also let Stefan know.
The password for the members area of the website has now been changed to match the new gate code as of 1st May 2014
On Saturday 17th May from 11AM until 4PM, Frensham Pond SC is hoping to get lots of people out on the water on RYA Push The boat out weekend. The club will be opening its doors and inviting people of all ages and abilities to come along and have a go at sailing.
Starting at 11AM there will be a taster sails, a display of the types of boat sailed, model yacht sailing and a plastic bottle boat race to watch with boats built by members. There is no charge. Just wear some clothes and trainers that you don’t mind getting wet and bring a towel.
Commodore Keith Videlo said: “Do come along and have a go at sailing and see what the club has to offer you and your family. As well as the taster sails, the normal club activities will be taking place including Cadet sailing, RYA training for adults and children plus racing in the afternoon. Club members will be delighted to help with any questions you may have”
