New Committee Boat Garage is Launched

New Committee Boat Garage

Our Bosun Ian Kelly and wife Sam have been at the Club most days (and evenings!) recently screwing and wiring the many bespoke fittings and devices onto the new committee boat which is looking very impressive. She is due to be trialed in the next week or two with the official launch due at the Club Regatta Day in June.

In order to protect our new ship Ian has commissioned a purpose built U shaped pontoon with a rigid frame covered in netting which will help deter the birds. This pontoon was launched on Friday and will be permenantly moored in Kelly's Creek near mark no. 6. Not only will the garage protect the committee boat but it is safe and easy to step onto the pontoon from the boat or a rib.

In the coming weeks we hope to give groups of OODs and AODs a guided tour of the new equipment before their forthcoming duties.
