Morning all weather forecast definitely looking on the up as this week goes on, highs of 18 to 21 degrees are being quoted. Breezy today but moderating as the week progresses. Some parish notices below from Shotley Point Yacht Club:

Crew Available to help you on board


This is a reminder that we have a number of good Crew Available now and any skipper who wants or needs extra pairs of hands should have a look at the Crew Available list on the website.

If you are thinking of taking a particular trip and want crew you can advertise it on the Crew Wanted page of the website, contact the Cruise Host to ask if any crew might be available, send an email to Phill to register your needs.

All of the Crew Available have been out with one of our volunteer Skippers, who help with Crew Pool, and they are all RYA Competent  Crew or Better.

Dave and Yvonne have asked me to put out this reminder because there is another club booked into the Haven Marina at the same time and so they would like to make sure and SPYC members are catered for. In addition they need to know how many of you are only coming for drinks and nibbles as they would like some idea of how many to cater for.

Many thanks
