You will see lots of buoys spread around the boat yard in the next number of days as RBC is doing its annual support of the SJ Dragon Boat Festival. In the next few days we have to put buoys in the water and lay out the course. The dragon boats will be delivered to the Public Wharf on Sunday and then team practices start, so RBC in under the gun.
Lots of work goes into our support including tugging boats to their moorings, buoy preparation, course prep and maintenance and on the day, start and finish boats for officials, ETC. If you would like to be part of the action and improve your knot tying and understand of rigging a mooring you can let Commodore Daryl know.
As you can see the water is still rising each date. This graph is from 0825 this morning. I took the pictures yesterday. There is a significant amount of debris floating under our boats. If you have a boat on the slides then you might want to check it. The power has been disconnected for the yard.

It has been really difficult to get the required numbers to make the CPS Boating Course run as it should. I have therefore made the decision to Join with the Ottawa Squdron and possibly one other to make a high quality joint effort. The date to begin has been changed to February 7. Our Goto Meetings will be Wednesday nights and I will facilitate local Students. If you have interest in
Joining please give me a call and I will let you know how to proceed.
