Staffing Update

Our wonderful Dinghy Administrator/Coordinator/Handyman, Keelboat Training Scheduler, Jack of All Trades, and all round Mr Nice Guy Sam Blackburn has accepted the new role of Assistant Harbour Master, within the FSC Harbour Office.

Sam is currently working in a transition period with his days divided between the Sailing and Harbour Offices whilst we try find a replacement for him. We will continue to keep you updated as to when Sam will move across to his new role full time.

Summer Season Training Fee

There are still some sailors that are yet to pay the Summer Season Training Fee. This fee is $280.00 and for all sailors participating in any training from October 2021 to April 2022. This equates to $40/month. It is imperative that this fee is paid prior to the commencement of Summer Season training.

We would like to acknowledge those who have already paid their fee and thank them for their cooperation

Our Dinghy Committee is made up of volunteers who work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure the Club’s Dinghy Section runs smoothly.

We have developed an Organisation Chart to ensure that our sailors and their parents are aware of who our committee members are, and what their roles entail.
