19 January The stream was 2 knts and every reach had a red board warning. As the water was over the down stream slipway Nigel took the opportunity, helped by Bryan, Gordon and Graham, to float the Aquarius patrol boat over the slipway as the first stage of taking it out to fix some leaking rivets. They are in the bow to help lift the stern enough to allow the skeg to slide over the slipway.


01 January We couldn't sail on New Year's Day after all as the stream was too fast. But we had a lovely lunch - jacket potato with various fillings,  Knowles recipe crumble,  plus cheese and cake; and exchanged resolutions for the new year.



22 December It is difficult to get to the club house without wading through water because it is over the bank so if you come to the club you are advised to wear Wellingtons.

Nigel, Graham and Bryan have been checking the boat moorings and adjusting where thought necessary. Water leval graph.

On Sunday 8 December 30 members had a great time at the family oriented Cheats Xmas party.  Nigel Knowles, Colin Lea and helpers organised and prepared a super lunch, quizes and Jenga.

Sunday 17 November some members were at AQSC clearing up following a very well presented annual dinner from our new caterers. Every river lock has a red warning board Caution Strong Current, 1.5 knots measured and the slipway was covered so no possibility of holding water activities. Sunday 10 November was the last scheduled sailing day on the programme but activities at the club on Sundays will continue.The BBQ will be available for a DIY BBQ and there will be the usual tea and cakes.

Personal Items

And now a word from our sponsors (i.e. The AQSC Management Committee). Please remove all personal items from the changing rooms at the end of the sailing day. The changing rooms are NOT storage areas and items left there WILL be disposed of. You have been warned!

Also there is far to much in the store room; it is not for storage of personal items that are seldom used and all items left there MUST be identified with the owner name or sail number else it may be disposed of.

Most people aren’t aware of the dangers of cold water shock. These RYA and RNLI stories highlight the dangers, I suggest you have a look.
