Our Commodore, Margaret Hynes and her son Sean represented Cullaun Sailing Club at the Wayfarer International championships in Florida March 7-11th 2022.
42 teams gathered in Lake Eustis SC, following long plane and car journeys, digging out snow covered boats and towing borrowed boats . Glorious sunshine and above normal temperatures of 30 degrees greeted us as we grappled to get used to the heat and overcome jet lag! Lake shores are home to alligators- waiting for feeding, so no apres swimming after sailing!

The club needs volunteers for lots of activities, shore duty is an essential one if there is any club activity on the lake. Its ideal if you don’t sail or have a junior member out sailing, or you are a sailor with no crew for that day.
The main duty of a shore person is to monitor VHF radio contact with the safety boats on the water. Keeping a half an eye on the compound and maybe helping with the trolleys when boats are returning to shore. Its easy, most of the time you can relax in the clubhouse watch the sailing with a coffee, bring a friend. Email our sailing secretary Chris to get on the rota for when we open back up. firstname.lastname@example.org
Margaret would like thank all those who offered to volunteer their help with the (cancelled) junior Easter camps. She is setting up a Whatsapp group for parents of U16 Junior sailors in 2021, if you want to be included, click the link https://chat.whatsapp.com/IyTStbqxMsE9w6JigCsi2u . Looking forward to lots of competitive sailing with our Junior sailors. We now have four RS200s at the club following the news that three more Junior members have acquired RS 200s over the winter.
Members are an essential part of any club. And your membership fees are vital to the running costs of Cullaun Sailing Club. Please don’t forget to pay for berthage if you keep a boat in the compound.
A new sticker / space system will be in operation this season for boats that have paid berthage.
