On Saturday, 4th August at 11:00hrs Rollo’s family will be leaving Buck Shore (SSC) to sail to the center of Swanage Bay to lay Rollo’s ashes to rest in the sea after which returning to the Swanage Sailing Club where the bar will be open from approx 12:00 to 13:00hrs to toast Rollo crossing the bar (see attached)
Three RIBs have been arranged, each manned by Social Sailors who often sailed in the company of Rollo.
The family are hopefully that many of those who knew and sailed with Rollo will form a flotilla with their own dinghies and accompany Rollo on his last journey and gather in the bar afterwards.
New date TBD.
This Saturday 28th July sees two races taking place, the Tuesday night trainees race and Ladies race (open to all lady members helming a 1 or 2 person boat). Both start at 10:30.
As many Sailing Club members will know, our neighbours Swanage Pier have been refurbishing Marine Villas.
As part of the process they are updating their power supplies and as part of that job they need to dig 2 holes in our boat park. These will be 1m square and are under Rack B at the back of the club. In order for this to be done we need to remove all boats and kayaks and move the rack away from the wall behind.
So what I’m asking is
A – if you have any kayaks locked to the rack please remove the lock by 5 pm Tuesday 17th.
B – if you are unhappy about others moving your kayaks or dinghies move them before 5 pm on Tuesday, store in the car park.
C – if you can make it to the club at 5 pm Tuesday, to help move the rack and boats, we would be most grateful.
If all goes to plan the work will be completed in 2 or 3 days, when we can put everything back where it is now.
Any questions get in touch with Graham Bobbit Vice Commodore email: firstname.lastname@example.org
