Castle & Islands Update - Meeting Friday 13th

Written by

It's that time of year when a random set of nutters run and sail around the Northumberland Coast all in the name of fun.

So far we have a 6 or so boats entered but for the first time ever in the event Pete Hammond will not be sailing. Injuries and work means he's going to be away until the Thursday before the event.

Running Marshalls.

The duties involve wearing a rather fetching high visibility jacket and guiding the runners and checking that they have all gone through. We need a minimum of 6 volunteers here but the more the merrier. We can send you out in pairs or groups. The runners take between 54minutes and 90 minutes to do the run so you would be on station for that time or until all the runners have passed.

Seahouses Marshall

This is an adventure spot. Under ideal circumstances the boats come into Seahouses as there last running leg. Which means very early in the morning. (02:00-06:00) but actually it can be any time from 23:00 to 10:00 so a good book and plenty of coffee are essential for this one. For many years this has been the domain of the hardy crew from the River Aln Boat club however this year the event clashes with another in Alnmouth and so if at all possible they have asked to be excused.
So this one's for the adventurers amongst us.


Meeting on Friday 13th

We will be holding a meeting this Friday at 19:30 at the club, where by the way they server great food and drinks, so please come along for an hour or so and we'll sort out the final details.

Please can everyone and any one who can help get come along on Friday or get in touch with Peter Hammond (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)
