Hi - Please read full e-mail for Sailing Saturday Afternoon Oct 12th at 3.30pm.
Please read full e-mail!
Forecast looks good. Although a good bit cooler now so it's particularly important to wrap up well as the sea is always a cooler. So layer up with an extra fleece and windcheater/ waterproof jacket is important and water/windproof over-trousers is great to have with you too. Essentially hiking gear without the heavy boots!
Expect to be out for about 1.5 to 2 hours. But if you're feeding a parking meter I recommend covering 3hours so that you can relax.
What to wear : Layers are important, just to give you the flexibility to adjust to changing temperatures.
Warm footwear with non-marking soles is also important.
How Much: Most people donate €20 each and some a little more. A number of people have been asking what's a reasonable donation towards the boat and this is the best guidance I can provide; €20 per person seems to be about right. It’s up to you. You can make a donation at the Meetup for an amount that you feel is reasonable. If you can't, that's fine too.
Very Important note for "First Timers" I will request your mobile number after you register. If I don't receive it, your registration may be quashed and your place given to another person.
What next: I'll provide a few more details to people who confirm - like where exactly we'll meetup in the marina, phone numbers and other stuff that'll pop into my head beforehand.
Please note: it may be after 6pm Friday Oct 11th before I can e-mail more details to people who confirm. It'll depend on the pace of interest really.
I'm looking forward to meeting you, the kettle will be on, and welcoming you aboard.
