In October we host our Laying-Up Supper and give our the year's Cups and Prizes, whilst the intrepid continue to race in the Frostbite Series.
Perhaps the very last fixture of the Sailing year is the final race of this series, followed by the Frostbite Lunch, where tradition recommends that the President serves Gin &Tonic...
The Frostbite Series turned out to be a two race ‘series’ as the weather thwarted all the other four races. It was the shortest series in memory, but as the Summer of 2016 was such a good one with very few cancelled races, we can’t really grumble.
Congratulations to Mike and Judith Shallow who won the Frostbite Cup to add to their 2016 collection.
Our President kept with Tradition (!) and a delicious hot Bring & Share meal.
Now sailing is put to bed till next Spring. The Dinghes are stowed from the Dinghy Park, the Cruisers have sailed from the river. Winter is the time major works happen , such as the resurfacing of the slip-way or replacing the decking in front of the Clubhouse.
The first fixture of the 2017 Calendar will be the OSC AGM, following smartly by the Easter Monday Working Party, when we shall all don overalls to paint and clean and get the Clubhouse ready for the season ahead.
