House Update April 2016

16 April, 2016


Hi All,

Spring must be upon us now, as I look out the harbour today and see firstly the Lasers out for their usual Saturday morning informal racing, for those of you who do not know about this and who may have a Laser and need some race practice or just time on the water, FG is at 10.30am and back in the club before lunch, all welcome! There are also cruisers pottering around the bay, which is a very pleasant sight! Hopefully the recent bad weather is behind us and we look forward to getting on with club racing.

Saturday 23rd April is the final day of the Spring Series, after racing there will be the presentation of prizes in the club and a buffet from around 5.30pm onwards, €15 per person, if you are interested in attending, please register your interest in the bar, our chef can only cater for those he knows are attending!

Sunday Lunch continues each week from 1pm and is getting more popular each week, this is a great way to meet up with other members on a lazy Sunday afternoon!

Junior Sailing continues each Sunday, it’s great to see them out on the water and great for the future of club sailing, if you have any children interested in joining this growing class, please contact John Stallard, they are now taking bookings for the Summer Courses.

Sailability are due to start up again on Saturday 23rd of April at 10am, we look forward to welcoming you all back for the 2016 season.

May Midweek race 1 will be on Wednesday 27th of April FG 18.55. Sailing Suppers will be available on the night.

The Kinsale Keelboat Regatta is on Saturday the 30th of April FG 11.55 and Sunday 1st May, there will be bar food available on both days.

ISA Open Day is on Monday 2nd May at 1pm, all welcome. Bar food will be available.

Dragons, Lasers and Squibs are starting Thursday night 5th of May.

We are noticing an increase in bookings for private functions this year, which is great for the club, if you would like to make an enquiry or booking, we would love to hear from you and we will help with the organising of your function in any way we can! Mick our chef will cater for groups of 15 and over.

Looking forward to seeing you in Kinsale Yacht Club soon!
