We Purchased Sandpiper back in November 2017 and fortunately the previous owner, Geoff, had paid for its berthing on the hard at Eastney with Eastney Cruising Association ( ECA ) ECA have a huge membership compared to ours and on Summer weekends they have problems parking all the sailing members’ cars on their available space, so their larger boats need to be cleared from the yard prior to car parking spaces being marked […]
The pirate/viking do was a complete success this year. Good turnout, I wondered on Fri night whether it would be cancelled, the weather was for wind and rain at 2pm Loads of boats left in a bit of breeze and I took a bit of water in a rough patch on the corner, well we were 5 up in my dinghy. Uneventful up to the pub where we met Shirley who drove round and parked […]
Roger sailed past on 2nd may 2017 and saw it had been restored to its former glory, great to see it again as though nothing had happened.
On I miserable February day I took the car round to see how it was going and was pleased to see that about 10′ of the stonework had been rebuilt.

The contractors have a rough terrain truck for a brew room with floodlights – rather them working out there in the […]

From our Forum Dear All, Message from Lancaster Port Commission (LPC). I have advised Helen that I’d put it on the club ‘grapevine’. ‘ LPC are going to be putting a Notice to Mariners out next week about the repair works, which we hope will begin next weekend. We are intending putting a temporary exclusion area between the lighthouse and the shore, over the area where the contractors will be transiting at low […]

I have created some new pages – they are responsive and should work well on small screens. When they are all tested they will be phased in and eventually take over from the 2009 website. Thanks to David Brindley for getting me on the “Lynda” online courses and Dave Woods and Steve Booth of RVSC who gave me some helpful tips on the use of “WordPress”. Many thanks to our John Wood who built up a neat icon […]
