Today was the first official day of the 2011 working parties. There was already lots of activity when I arrived (late) at 11am.
Peter Williams (our bosun) had prepared a list (circulated by email) with some jobs that could be usefully done this year. The ‘Working Party Sundays’ will continue for the next few weeks until the ‘start of sailing’. Work starts at 10am on these Sundays and all members are welcome.
Amongst other things going on (see pictures):-
Log chopping and cutting.
Shed wood treatment.
Burst pipe mending.
Buoys retrieved in preparation for cleaning.
Wood treatment in mens changing room.
Everyone helped with lifting the rescue boat from the water. Peter is going to take it away in order to check it over to see what maintenance is needed.
