Sailing at Clapham on the 17th May

Sailing, what sailing? The day started badly with heavy rain and those who did arrive at the Clubhouse early found it still raining and a heavy wind. Happily the rain stopped about 11-11.30 but the wind was still strong and very gusty, and for 6M sailing it was thought borderline. No-one seemed anxious to rig a boat so we stayed in the Clubhouse. It was noticeable that some members have been busy over the last week or two re-arranging things and the main room is much better organised. This brings up a point which needs airing.
The Clubhouse provides a reasonable degree of comfort and amenity.Tea and coffee are readily available and provided free by by one or other of the members yet it is sad to see that some of those who take advantage of the amenities do not bother to clear up. Cups are left unwashed in the sink, and even when disposable cups are used these, and teabags, are frequently left around after use insread of being disposed of. The Clubhouse is for the benefit of all members and all should make an effort to keep the place clean and tidy. An occasional sweeping of the floor, tidying of magazines and clearing and
washing cups/disposables is not too much to ask, and the bucket should always, repeat, always be cleaned before the last member leaves the Clubhouse. This last, regretfully, has not always been done and it is wrong that these simple tasks are left to a few, very few, members. All have a responsibility to see that these things are done and not leave it to the next man. I hope to see a general tightening up on these basic points.
The Chairman.
