Vale Lois Stocks
Under the Cover of a Covid lockdown, Foundation and Life Member Lois Stocks, wife of Don Stocks, sadly passed away.
This was only brought to my attention last weekend on talking to Andrew.
The Stocks name has been synonymous with the Safety Beach Sailing Club since foundation and on behalf of the Executive and Members of the SBSC, we extend our deepest sympathies to Andrew, Linda, Allison, Daniel & Tim.
Regrettably restrictions prevented any representative from the club attending the service.
The House Committee is scheduling another working bee for Saturday the 5th of December, commencing at 9.00am. I know it’s getting close to Christmas, but it’s not like we can go anywhere exciting, so why not donate a few hours of your valuable time to the betterment of the grounds of the club.
Jobs to be done include:
- did I mention weeding
- A bit of tidying up and general maintenance
- Weeding equipment
- Industrial size weed sprayer with the spray to go in it

From the Rear
It is with great pleasure to announce we are back to sailing without restrictions. OTB sailors can move around the rigging yard without a mask so long as social distancing is adhered to. Sailing with someone other than another person who lives under the same roof without having to social distance. Change rooms can be used so long as the 1 person per 4 sqm rule is adhered to (well nearly without restrictions). Keel Boats are the same - no masks required, and no restrictions on crew numbers.
However, to keep us all safe and to ensure we comply with Victorian Government and AS rules and recommendations, please remember to Sign On and Off via the QR codes. Duty personal to sign in via the appropriate QR code. OTB sailors and friends to use the rigging yard QR code on arrival. Also please remember to sign into Snooks Catering QR when you enter the club house. Please always remember to have your mask with you. Please put it on when moving around the club house when you are not eating or drinking. For example, when you remove yourself from the table to exit the building or to use the bathroom. If you are unsure Snooks Catering staff will be more than happy to assist with any questions you may have. To be honest I did not ask David but sure he won’t mind.
I would like on behalf of all members wish regular OTB rescue boat driver Rob Campbell all the best for his pending knee surgery. You will be greatly missed by all OTB sailors. As we will more than likely have to do more duty in your absence, so we all wish you a speedy recovery. If any member is interested in volunteering their time driving or assisting on rescue boats on Sunday afternoons, please contact me on 0467 000 442 to discuss.
Before signing off, I would like to mention how wonderful it is to see so many members across all fleets and social members enjoying everything Safety Beach Sailing Club has to offer and may it continue to grow as the weather improves. There is so much to look forward to after a miserable 2020 winter.
