Ladies that Launch
The fabulous Ladies That Launch enjoyed their first session on Friday 15th May. We are back out on the water this Friday 29th, the forecast for tomorrow is wet for most of the day, but it hopefully should dry up by 6pm ready for our LTL session. The wind might be a bit challenging so we will ensure there is a plan B in case it proves too windy for everyone to sail. Looking forward to seeing you all down there tomorrow evening.

Round The Island Challenge
As you know Ken Fowler is sailing his Laser around the Isle of Wight in one day - raising money for Cancer Research UK, and The Oakhaven Hospice Trust.
Please sponsor him at www.virginmoneygiving.com/iowmudeford
Preparations are continuing and both physical and equipment wise are finally getting there. The next planned dates are in early June – Sunday the 7th and Monday the 8th. We have RIB crews sorted for those dates – so thank you to all of you who offered to help out. When Ken finally makes it back to the club he’ll be having a few drinks to celebrate, so if you can make it down to the club to welcome the RIB crew and Ken back up the run then please come down – Facebook updates should give you an idea of what time approximately this will be.

Sailors FYI - Just a quick update regarding ingress and egress of Christchurch Harbour via the navigation channel. We have completed mechanical enhancing operations on the channel crossing the bar, 300m off the tip of Mudeford Sandbank this morning. Unfortunately the channel green and red buoys cannot be re-positioned until Tuesday next week, therefore until then mariners will have two possible channels available to them. We have however deployed ten yellow warning buoys with a St Andrews cross a top, to demarcate the contractors dredging operation zone which will also come into effect from Tuesday.
