This Week  25th February to 2nd March

Sunday 1st March   The 10:30 Handicap race followed by the Winter Series 19 races are scheduled to take place.

Next Week  3rd to 9th March

Thursday 5th March  Club Supper and Talk

Nicholas Bayne, brother-in-law of Anne, will be giving a talk on Thursday 5th March.  It will be about the exploration of the North West passage in the 19th century by John and James Ross (remote Uncles of Christopher and Nicholas) and John Franklin, Commander of the expedition in which ‘Erebus’ and ‘Terror’, recently discovered, were used.  This promises to be an enlightening insight into why Ross survived when Franklin died.  It will also touch on the contact between Arctic Explorers and the Inuit.

Sunday 8th March   The 10:30 Handicap race followed by the Winter Series 20 races are scheduled to take place.

Further Ahead

Sunday 29th March   The next event of note is the Geoff Cooper Trophy for Merlins which will be contested concurrently with the Winter Series 23 race.



Each Monday morning, between 10:30 and 11:30, Joanne Zorian-Lynn  holds a very jolly Pilates class in the Clubhouse.  This Pilates class is suitable for all ages and abilities as each exercise is offered and demonstrated for all levels.

Joanne is a specialist mat Pilates instructor with training in common orthopaedic conditions and rehabilitation.

Pilates develops flexibility, strength and confidence. It reduces stiffness in muscles and joints whilst focusing on core control, postural alignment and co-ordination.  Pilates is widely practised by sports people and recognised to be of tremendous value.

River Conditions

River conditions continue to be fairly unpleasant and are likely to worsen if we have the further rain that is forecast.

For those who want to monitor the river conditions at Kingston, this can be seen at https://www.gaugemap.co.uk/#!Detail/1249      or at

Looking after your boat

As a postscript, the continuing stormy weather may have loosened boat covers and any tie-downs.  It will be as well to check your boat’s security as soon as possible as boats on the loose can not only become damaged themselves but may cause damage to adjacent boats.  The Club has a stock of ground anchors with which boat owners can be supplied.  If you would like some please contact Peter Johnson petnic2012@gmail.com  or Andrew Horwitz andrew@andrewhorwitz.com.
