Events to look forward to, and take part in …
ULLSWATER, 23–25 June. We hope you’ll all be able to join our annual trip (sailing and camping) to Ullswater. Details were in the recent YRISC News (https://yrisc.files.wordpress.com/2017/05/june-2017.pdf), but if you want more information, just ask. If you are planning to come, it would be helpful if you could let us know. Send message to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also tell us if you are planning to bring a boat, or if you have a towbar and could volunteer to bring one of the club boats.

Other stuff …
Use of club boats. We have SIX club boats – two Toppers, two Visions, a GP14 and an RS200. They are available for club members to use, once you have demonstrated to the committee that you are competent to do so. There is a modest fee for their use other than in formal training sessions, and for this year it is £3 for a full day, £2 for a half-day or evening. The money is used to cover the cost of repairs and maintenance – because bits of equipment do wear out, and do occasionally get broken. When you use one of these boats, please make sure to (a) pay the fee and (b) record which boat you have used, and any issues encountered, in the diary on the club-house table. On formal sailing days, the Race Officer will chase you for this!
