    What an incredible success!

    Marion and Simon plus their support team of Jane, Pat, Zoe and others surpassed themselves on this fantastic evening.  Over 50 members and guests sat down to an wonderful Italian evening.

    The splendid four course meal started with a selection of cold meats, followed by that Italian favorite, lasagna plus healthy salad, followed again by a not so healthy but delicious Tiramisu, and if that wasn't enough a selection of cheeses rounded up the feast.

    Clearly the Channel Sailing Club social events are pushing the standard ever higher.  

    For those of you who went, I hope the evening was as enjoyable for you as it was for me.  For those of you who missed it, bad luck, remember to book earlier next time (you won't regret it).

    It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Keith Gibbs after a short illness.

    Keith was a long standing and Honorary Life Member of the club. He will be much missed by all those who sailed with him, learnt from him, and were regaled by him in his inimitable style. 

    Our thoughts and best wishes are with Doreen, Carl and the family.

    This month all hosepipes were removed from Royal Clarence Marina under the direction of the water utility company, and their insurers, based on the risk of waterbourne bacteria or washback into the mains water system.  

    Any how the purpose of the bulletin was to recommend to members LIDL in Gosport (or any other larger LIDL store I guess) they are selling 30 metre retractable hoses which are very good for £21.99 pack up into a small bag with a trigger spray gun .  Very good value and function,  plenty long enough for most marinas.

    Image result for rnli

    The RNLI event on the 7th November was a great success on all fronts.  Richard Bywaters gave us a fascinating presentation on the history of the RNLI including some extraordinary video footage of both inshore and offshore lifeboats. 

    But far more importantly the club managed to donate over £350 towards the charity at this one event through the collection and the purchase of RNLI merchandise. 

    Richard Bywaters and Peter Chapman both wanted to thank you, the members, for your generous support of this amazing charity.
