February 2018

We are currently allocating billets to members who have requested a new billet for this year.  All members on the waiting list have now been sent an email with the offer of a billet or billets for this year. If we don’t receive a reply from you within a few days then the offer will expire and the billet will be offered to another member.

If members have any additional requests for billets for this season, please contact us as soon as possible.

Several members were notified at the end of October last year that their billets would not be renewed this year due to lack of use last season. It is apparent that a number of these boats have remained in the dinghy park over the winter. If your boat has not been allocated a billet for this year then please ensure that it is removed from the dinghy park by the end of February at the latest otherwise it will be moved to the Bath Road car park to await disposal.

Please may we ask all members with Billets in the Mountbatten Park to renew their Club membership as soon as possible. This will enable us to commence our reorganisation of the dinghy park prior to the start of the new sailing season.

Many of you will have noticed that we have completed the first phase by re-numbering a large proportion of the billets. The next job is to physically re-paint the numbers in the park (volunteers please come forward).

Please also be aware that when you renew your billet your invoice will state a billet number, but that number could change during the reorganisation. We will let you know your new billet number prior to the start of the new season. The plan is to move many of the smaller boats down to the western end of the park where space is limited and keep the larger boats at the eastern end. Scows will be kept in the same location.

There is a large waiting list for Billets for next season. If you do not require a Billet for next year it would be really helpful if you could let the Billets Officers know as soon as possible to enable us to plan for next season.

During the winter we will be making some changes in the Mountbatten Park:

Firstly, many of the Billets will be re-numbered using a simpler system. For example Billet A14/A will become A14 and A14/B will become A15 etc.

Secondly, we are aware that some members are having difficulty getting their boats in and out of their Billets due to lack of space. Boats have been damaged by some owners being less than careful. We will be re-organising the park during the winter so members may find that they will be offered a different Billet for next year.
