Preliminary MAID (Marine Accidnet Investigation Department) Report now out re tragic accident in Padstow. In view of recent events if you have an outboard engine, big or small, and it is fitted with a kill cord it is suggested you to check that it is fitted and functions correctly. When required will it STOP the engine, and in so doing avoid any possible injury to persons in the water. Remember to clip the cord on to yourself!
The May Newsletter is now available, and will be posted or handed to you shortly. Copy of May Newsletter also available here.
Please be aware that work to remove the old seaward access bridge to the pontoons is due to start on Thursday 23 May.
It is anticipated that the new access walkway should be in commission by that date. If, by chance, there are any delays to these plans it may be necessary to reach the pontoons by dinghy but we very much hope this won’t happen.
Please watch for any updated information on the website or in the Stopgap.
SUMMER CLUB CRUISES
You will see in your club programme, and on the Club Calendar that there are club cruises planned for destinations in the Bristol Channel. These are one day and two day cruises. You will be able to go in company with other club boats. Members will often have visited these locations before and can offer advice on anchorages, and pilotage.
In addition useful sources of information can be obtained from the various sailing club websites, a link is here.
If you have a copy of the Blue Book this has updated plans and information provided by the clubs themselves. Copies available from Force 4 and Watchet Marina.
VisitMyHarbour.com has detailed information, photos, and charts of many harbours in the Bristol Channel.
All we want now is good sailing weather.

RNLI LIFEJACKET CLINIC
A lifejacket clinic will be held at BOSMB&SC on Saturday 1st June between 10am and 2pm.
In addition a lifejacket clinic will be held at Combwich Sailing club on Sunday 9th June between 10am and 2pm.
Please bring along your lifejackets and check to see they are fully serviceable.
This is an opportunity to check the integrity of all your lifejackets. If required, would your lifejacket deploy. A few minutes of your time will be well spent and could save a life.
Last year 1 in 15 lifejackets when examined was found to be defective and would have failed to inflate. Regular inspection and servicing will help to find faults before the lifejacket is called upon.
A useful RNLI leaflet on Caring for your Lifejacket is available to download here.
The next pontoon work party will be on Saturday 18th May 2013. This will be phase FIFTEEN of the project. On Saturday 11th May concreting took place around the walkway development. Further walkway floor panels were installed. Surplus concrete was used in and around the club on improvements. All this despite strong winds and squally showers.
