    On behalf of the club I would like to thank Mike Rigg who, with the help of John Hookway, provided regular OOD cover which ensured dinghy racing through the Frost Bite and Early Bird Series.  As a result, for the first time ELYC has enjoyed all year round dinghy racing!

    Thanks for great courses, a good turn out, and Great Fun!

    Sheila Smith, Vice Commodore.

    ELYC will be running a First Aid Course at the club. The instructor will be Anna Caldwell who has run very good courses at ELYC in the past.

    An understanding the principles of First Aid can be one of the most useful qualifications for just about everyone, and may literally be a life saver. Injuries or illness may occur at any time when out sailing or boating so 1st Aid skills may be needed without warning – so be prepared!

    The RYA First Aid course is specifically designed to cover the types of injury that may happen afloat as well as ashore. The certificate is a pre-requisite for all RYA Instructors, Coastal Skipper / Yachtmaster exam candidates, and applicants for Advanced Powerboat Courses.

    We have been informed that works will shortly begin to repair the damage that was done to the dinghy park in the storm last March.

    To this end, all boats must be removed from the dinghy park by Saturday 26 February 2011 at the very latest.

    At this stage, the works are estimated to take 3 weeks to complete
