We still have some beer left
We have come to the end of another season, when try as hard as we could things beyond our control were against us; first Covid-19, then the weather and finally Covid-19 again, so the team and I have surrendered for this year and hope that next year brings better results.
We would like to thank all of the students for their good behaviour and performance in these trying times, sometimes testing their skills to the limit. Obeying the rules put in place to keep them as safe as possible – even the yellow and red card seemed to work.
I would also like to thank all of the adults that were able to help in one way or another. The system that we have been using appears to have worked quite well with the Exec. having a Skype meeting the day before to decide on the plan for the session, with Bev collating the students’ availability with endless emails.
Looking to the future.
We, as a committee, are already looking at how we can go forward next year including all levels from Beginners up to Performance. With this we will need your help; we were sometimes stretched this year on adult help, especially with the beach.
If the students would like to continue next season please let us know as soon as possible so we can judge the interest and plan ahead; likewise for any adults who would like to help in any way.
Remember stay safe . HANDS, FACE, SPACE.
Thank you for your support
Thank you Malcolm for all your hard work, drive and enthusiasm which enabled Youth Sailing to make the best of a very difficult year!
From all the Instructors, helpers and students involved in this challenging season.
Message from HASA
We advise visiting sailors using the Ha’penny Pier pontoons that the facility is now unmanned for the winter season. Our Pier Masters will be back on duty during the last week of March 2021.
The gate accessing the pontoons from Ha’penny Pier is currently under repair and will remain open for the next few days. However, for security reasons and following incidences of vandalism and unsocial behaviour the gate will remain shut throughout the winter.
Harwich Haven Authority gives priority usage of the Ha’penny Pier pontoons to local fishermen during the off season.
Sailors should note that if the bridges connecting the pontoons are raised… it is unsafe to enter the mooring facilities.
Ha’penny Pier and the pontoons are under 24 hour CCTV surveillance.
The Pier Masters’ telephone will be manned between 0900 -1600 during the winter season – 07748 154039. Alternatively, email firstname.lastname@example.org
