There is an Executive meeting for Nov 19 at 7:30. All are welcomed.
Happy thanksgiving and that means it is time to wrap up the boating season.
The last of the boats for RBC storage are now on shore and that means it is time for all boats be hauled out and all moorings winterized. Check in the Member Section of the website and find winterizing mooring instructions. Please remember to ensure your mooring tag is secured to your top chain and cleaned off. These tags have proven to be essential to mooring identification and greatly improves spring launch. Should you need floating winter (yellow) rope, there is rope available. Record your name and length of rope on the form in the Heritage Building.
The deadline for mooring winterizing is Oct 20. At that time all temporary floats/buoys will be removed leaving just your floating line. YOU ARE RESPOSIBLE FOR YOUR MOORING.
The dock trailer is on the wharf and that means the docks will be hauled out sometime during the week as soon a the crane can be scheduled. Any dinghies left will have to be moved to the public wharf along with the workboat.
Once the docks are finished haulout and all floats/buoys are removed, the workboat will be hauled out and winterized. The deadline is Oct 20.
Consult the Harbourmaster or Rear Commodore should you have any questions or concerns.
A General meeting of all members is scheduled for Tuesday Oct 15, 2019 at 7:30.
This meeting is the last general meeting of 2019 and a preliminary for the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in January 2020. As such, the membership gets to inform the Executive on their wants and needs for 2020 and starts the budget (operating and capital) process that gets voted on at the AGM. This meeting also starts the nomination process for the 2020 Officers (Commodore, Vice Commodore, Rear Commodore, Secretary and Treasurer), also voted on at the AGM.
Please attend and share your ideas.
The latest Marine weather forecast this A.M. is as follows for Fundy:
Gale warning: Winds light increasing to 15 knots this evening and East to 20 knots overnight. Winds increasing to N.E. 35 Saturday morning to N.E. 45 knots on Saturday afternoon.
Waves: Today, tonight & Saturday- Seas 1 metre or less building to 1-2 m. Saturday morning and 3-4 m. by Noon Saturday.
Sunday morning: Winds N.E. / 25-35 kn. Diminishing to Westerly 15 kn. In the afternoon.
The plan is to haul out the gallows , the workboat and reposition the tee-section of the dinghy docks to the South side of the wharf or lee-side beginning @ 4P.M. today. The remaining sections dinghy docks will be quite vulnerable in this projected gale and you would all be wise to consider taking your individual dinghies ashore and out of harm’s way until the weather subsides.
