Otter Start of Season Meeting & Lunch

Saturday 10th March 2018

The annual Otter Start of Season Meeting is a great chance to catch up with old friends and meet new ones too!

The morning will provide an opportunity to hear from the new Otter Commodore, Colette Bacon, and to meet with the other Flag Officers for this year - Vice Commodore, Tom Rands, Rear Commodores, Izzie Corbett and Sophie Dawson and Otter Secretary, Scott Ellis. There will also be a chance to meet the team of Otter Trainers who will be leading the fleets throughout the year and to check over your boats in readiness for sailing the following week whilst Andy of Yachting Solutions will be on hand to assist with any boat maintenance issues that arise from the checks.

Weather permitting, to add a little more interest, throughout the morning we will also have some rowing gigs at the end of the pontoon so that the Otters (and parents if they wish) can try their hand at a spot of rowing. Our Topper Sports will also be available for those that fancy a quick sail with friends! Don't forget to bring appropriate warm clothing for this!

Sale Rail

Back inside the Otter second hand Sale Rail will be up and running - for those who want to search out new kit at a fraction of the price or for those who want to sell their outgrown sailing kit and make a bit of cash!

If you wish to sell any items we can do it for you with 20% of the sale going to Otter funds. All you have to do is ensure clothing is clean and in good condition, clearly mark, on each item of clothing, your name, phone number and the price you wish to sell it for and we will do the rest!


Following the meeting Simon, the RCYC Chef, will be serving up another one of his excellent lunches for us - please make sure you book in advance with the office on 01621 782105.
