Galley Updates

Messages from Richard De Lisle:

At its meeting last week the Directors decided that only children in year 8 and above should be allowed in the Galley, and must be under supervision, due to the inherent risks of hot water at the sink and the hot water dispenser and the risks from the cooker that can be turned on accidentally.

Generally, when someone is on galley duty, members should only enter the Galley with the permission of the duty person as a courtesy.

Please observe hygiene rules and avoid going in when there are already several people in there.

We have your safety at heart.

Help! Unfortunately Jo Dengate has had to step back from coordinating the Galley for the time being due to family commitments. Is there anyone who can help out with this, either on an occasional or regular basis please? Jo can explain the routine and may be able to assist on occasions. Please contact me on 07443115925 or

Ladies Toilets Update

The ladies' toilets now have a designated sanitary/nappy disposal bin and sanitary products in each cubicle, alongside biodegradable waste bags for you to use at your convenience.

There is an informal WhatsApp group called 'Sailing mums and dads' This is for parents/carers who would like to help each other with looking after children and joining sailing activities. If you would like to join, please let Magda know (07898778816) and she will add you to the group.
