Condolences

We received some very sad news this week with the passing of Tony Grieves.  Tony was a member of Safety Beach Sailing Club for many years and during his early years at the club was a well known catamaran sailor in the OTB fleet.  You could always tell when Tony was visiting the club as his much loved Trans Am was parked out the front.

Our sincerest condolences to Maureen and the Grieve family during this very tough time.

As mentioned in last week's report there are a number of changes so please make sure you study them in detail in particular the new courses that we will be using this coming season and make sure you discard any old copies of SI's and course sheets that you may have loitering onboard.  

We know everyone is keen to get back out on the water so in preparation for the season ahead please make sure you submit your completed Cat 5 Safety Declaration along with a copy of your current Insurance Certificate to This email address is being protected from spambots.
