Club Office

30 July 2018

To maintain security, members are advised that the codes for the gates, stores and pool have been changed today.  As always, the new numbers will be on display in the outer office.

We would ask members to keep the gates closed at all times and not to shout out access codes to other members.

Thank you.

Club Office

24 July 2018

The sail, mast, boom, RS Tera bag and all rigging for Tera sail No. 2349 are all missing from the sail store. If anyone has taken or used this equipment please return it urgently.  If you know anything about this or have borrowed it advertently, please contact the office.

Members are reminded not to borrow other members' kit without permission.

We would ask that all members help in running a safe club and to ask them to intervene and/or report any unsafe conditions they may come across.  In this way, damage to people and equipment can be ameliorated or avoided altogether.  Please contact the office if you notice something is broken, damaged or missing and we will endeavour to fix it.  We are lucky to have a very small team of volunteers who come to the Club either daily or weekly to help us keep on top of jobs.

Thank you.

Orange kayak missing

Thank you.

Scran/lost property

Many thanks to Sue Slight and Anne Fox-Robinson who spent a few hours on Saturday emptying, drying and sorting out a very full scran store.

All sailing items of value left at the Club will now be stored in a safe place and can be retrieved by contacting Sue or Anne via the office.  Watches, sunglasses etc. are kept in the office as usual; odd items (e.g. swimming costumes, shoes, T-shirts etc.) will remain in the scran cupboard for collection.

If items are not claimed then they will be sold at the annual scran sale on 4 November.

Thank you.

Furniture available

We have replaced many of the dining tables and the old ones are available FOC if any members would like them. Available at the time of writing are: six large rectangular and two square tables, both on the upper deck, and a corner desk, a small square desk and two computer monitors, all in the Training Room.

Lost property

Following two very busy weekends at ESC some members have lost some kit and the scran store is almost full to the brim! Please come down and check if you have left any kit in the Club.

In addition, two paddles for kayaks have gone missing and one pair of prescription sunglasses disappeared from the changing rooms on Saturday 2 June.  If you know where any of these items are please contact the office

14 May 2018

Masts – is one of these yours?

There are several unmarked masts by the side of the sail store (under the ESC kayaks) which have been there since the last sort out of the sail store over a year ago.  If one of these is yours, please claim it by Sunday 20 May, after which unclaimed masts will be disposed of.

Thank you.

2 May 2018

Swimming Pool

Just to remind all members that use of the pool is strictly for members and temporary guests only and that all users must have a valid resuscitation qualification or equivalent (as per our Byelaw 3c).

Resus Courses

The next resuscitation course will be Wednesday 6 June so please sign up on the noticeboard or contact the office if you wish to attend.  This course is valid for three years.  The office has a record of all members with this qualification.


May we remind members to ensure that gates are kept closed and also that the code to the changing rooms etc. is not given out to non-members. The codes to the gates, changing room and padlocks will be changed in the next few weeks and will be on display in the outer office.

This year we welcome several new members to our Club; however, in order to maintain our security, if you do not recognise a member, please feel free to ask them if they are a member. 

Changing rooms

In order to keep the changing rooms as you would like them, please remember to take all your belongings away after use.  They are cleaned regularly, but to reduce the amount of water on the floor wiper mops are in both changing rooms.

Access cards and wristbands

Access wristbands are available to purchase from the office at £2 each if you would like to have one. However please note that you can only “top up” either your card or wristband with money at the bar.  

Replacement access cards are available at £5 each.

Many thanks. 

14 February 2018

New changing room lockers have been installed in both changing rooms.  Members can bring their own mini padlocks down and lock away car keys, wallets etc. safely.

We would request that members do not leave possessions in lockers overnight.

5 February 2018

Club redecoration

The dining room and wet bar are being redecorated this week and next - apologies to members for any inconvenience caused.
