RNLI Charity Golf Day at Southwick Wed 4 Sep 19 - To take part follow the link below.

Boats Returning to the Water - As you are all aware this next 2 months are extremely busy with a further 100 boats planned to re-launch and with short term lifts taking place. Please ensure the following:
· Cars parked in FB3 must not be in a position that obstructs the route for boat movements - this is happening too often and delays boat movement operations!
· Boats programmed for launching are to be ready in all respects for movement and launch with warps, fenders, anchors and chains at the ready - if boats are not ready your programmed lift may be deferred to a later date.

Boat Electric Cables - Berthholders are requested to return their electric cables to the Marina office. All cables must be returned by 1 Jun for PAT testing.

Your Health and Safety is Important to us! - Please report any H&S breaches or recommended improvements and please follow the Club's H&S rules and guidance. If in doubt ask. Latest H&S leaflet for boats lifted and laid up can be downloaded below.

For those carrying out work on their boats please ensure you clean up any arisings resulting from the work - Please keep the site clean.

Car Parking in FB3 - Please note that use of the car park is for use on Hornet or JSASTC business only. We are seeing members park in Hornet/JSASTC and walk on foot into Gosport. Please do not abuse this parking privilege.

Car Parking in FB2 - Members using FB2 for short term parking are asked to use the parking spaces adjacent to the Blue mast shed or if these are full or not in use please park directly behind the Clubhouse - Do not use the JSASTC parking spaces.

Reminder to Carry Membership ID - Please remember to carry your in-date Club ID cards at all times and to show to security staff on request. New 2019 stickers are available through the Office or behind the bar. If you require us to post to you please contact the Office.
