Should any CFB Trenton Yacht Club member wish to have their vessel checked by a CPS RVCC volunteer, please let us know by e-mailing John Brewster at email@example.com or by seeing me at the club or by dropping a request in the “B” box.

As a result of discussions at the sail race meeting held in March, I have added the link “Weekly Results” on the Racing webpage to a workbook that contains the results of the series races. There is a separate spreadsheet for each race, (T-U=Tune-Up, GL=Greenleaf, DH=Diehard) with a summary sheet in front. Each race spreadsheet shows the actual and adjusted times and the placing of the boats racing that week based on the club’s calculated handicap and the handicap assigned by PHRF (greyed area). The PHRF results are shown for information only and will not be used for determining series results.

Please note these club requirements and take action as you can to assist.
1) Masts. There are a number of masts on the racks still and for the most part they are unidentifiable. Of particular concern are the masts on the rack closest to the beach as we like to empty that rack each summer to make the beach more accessible. If you have a mast on the beach rack, please put it on your boat or on the other rack. Find a way to put your name on the masts on the rack.
2) Fuel Spills. We can't have fuel spills in the harbour! Please don't try to fill your tanks using jerry cans to capacity as that is when spills are most likely to happen. Most fuel systems have a vent that is lower than the height of the deck filling cap and spills will happen through that vent.
3) Fees. A number of user fees were added to the club fee schedule this year. I expect that some members accidently missed including these items on their membership and therefore did not pay appropriate rates. Please pull out your applications for 2016 and check to see if you have selected and paid for things like shore power, mast crane use and the pump out. Payments if needed can be made to John Stewart or Michael Wright.
4) Entertainment. The Wednesday evening free to members BBQs are back on so come on out and enjoy the fun. We are in need of volunteers to sign up for BBQ duties in late July and most of August if we want to keep the events going. It is a great way to meet others around the club. There is a sign up sheet for your name and contact for all the summer dates on the kitchen door of the club house.
Thanks, and enjoy the boating.
Highway of Heroes Bike Ride
(posted May 31/16)
Every few years I tackle a significant bicycle ride to help raise needed funds for a worthy organization and this year I have decided to support Wounded Warriors Canada.
On Sept 24th and 25th I'll be riding with a team from my unit 24 Canadian Forces Health Services (24 CF H SVCS) from the Afghan Memorial at CFB Trenton ON to Queens Park Toronto.
If you are able to help me to raise funds for this organization, the easiest way to make donations is through their website.
Go to http://woundedwarriors.ca/highway-of-heroes-ride/home/. There you can search for my name or the team name 24 CF H SVCS and make your donation. Any amount will help.
I'll be training up again this summer, so watch for me on the roads!
