Quiz Night

Racing Rules ‘Lightning Talks’

Thursday 8th March, 7.30 p.m.

The Racing Rules of Sailing are important, but few people would call them interesting. The ‘lightning talks’ format — a bit like speed dating with an audience — should change that:

  • each speaker gets 5 minutes on their chosen topic
  • with 10 seconds left, start clapping quietly
  • if they run out of time, drown them out with applause and move on!

Major Incident Plan Session

Thursday 21st March, 7.30 p.m.

We have a Major Incident Plan, and any Club member might have to use it. Find out how you should handle emergencies and major incidents at the Club, and help us continue to improve the plan.
