Winter 2016-17

Office hours are Tuesday to Friday 08:00 – 14:00, except for the Christmas/New-Year shut-down which starts at mid-day Wed 21st December. The clubhouse will be open for the PEYC visit on Monday 2nd January, and then reopens from Wednesday 4th January. The Office will re-open on Thursday 5th.

Over the winter, the Club House will be open for members to use the facilities (including self service tea and coffee in the bar area):

  • during the week – during staff working hours, generally opening by 09:00 and closing around 17:00
  • at weekends – a small team of volunteers will aim to ensure  the clubhouse is open  for members to use during the day, typically also 09:00-17:00.

These times will be extended, and the bar opened, for the events advertised in the Events Calendar.

Coffee & Tea are available as usual in the Lounge, prices as displayed on notice (coffee £1 per mug – tea £1 per pot – biscuits 30p)

Members can eat packed lunches in the Lounge but should not use any equipment in the kitchen.

Wet Gear, Workclothes and Boots are not permitted in the Lounge – thank you.

Summer 2017 (provisional)

For 2017 the boatman service will operate seven days a week from lift-in day, subject to tides and forces beyond our control.

Your  Boatmen for 2017 are Piotr and (TBA).

The boatmans’ hours are given in the table at the bottom of every page in the website.

Remember the boatman’s last pick up time is about 15 minutes before his shift End time.

The table will shows the summer’s boatman’s hours and bar hours, as well as High Water (HW) and sunset.

Generally the club house is opened by the cleaner or the first person on duty, and closed by the last. It normally opens at 0800 or 0900, and closes at the end of whichever is latest of Office, Boatman, and Bar hours.

The bar is open for drink and hot food at various times when activity is expected in the club. This will be when there is racing, or an event or weekend sailing (i.e. tide and a boatman).

Opening hours will be published on the club notice board and here on the web, in the table below.

Office hours are Tuesday to Friday 08:00 – 14:00. (Closed over Christmas and New Year weeks.)

The full boatman’s and high water times can be downloaded here: RFYC Sailing Calendar 2016. (To be updated with 2017 Sailing Calendar when available, likely to be in March 2017)
