Etherow Clountry Park Open Day

Etherow Country Park Open Day

This coming Saturday, June 8, is Etherow Country Park Open Day, and all organisations involved have been asked to put on a show for the public.

We will be there, hopefully in force. Please try and come to make the day one to remember. Bring as many interesting boats as you can so that we can put a good show on the water.

We will be inviting members of the public to "Have a Go", and the day will be a great opportunity to interact with the public and show off the Club in a positive manner.

The Sailing Club, Anglers and the Compstall Comminity Association will also be there.

Lake Closure

Lake Closure  -  Tuesday 25 June

Most of you will have seen the previous post announcing a working party to rebuild the Rescue Boathouse on Tuesday, 25 June.

Because this work will involve major building work on the landing stage, the Committee have agreed that on that day, the landing stage will be closed for sailing until the work is completed.

This will mean that the lake will not be available for sailing during that period.

Apologies to anybody who was intending to come and sail for the inconvenience.

David Swift

David Swift   R.I.P.

We have just learnt of the death of David Swift, a few days ago. David, who joined the Club in 2011, always enjoyed his sailing, despite the loss of his sight some years ago.

The Club sends sincere condolences to his family, and especially to John Glyn, his friend and mentor.

David's funeral will be held at 12.00 noon on Tuesday 11 June, at Dukinfield Crematorium.

Ellesmere Model Boat Show

Hooton Park - 18 May 2019

The Club were not exhibiting at the revamped Ellesmere Model Boat Show, at Hooton Park, last weekend, but several Club members went along for a look.

Bob Abell took some pictures - there were some nice models on display. Perhaps we can have a Club stand there next year.
