Day skipper course

The Isle of Man Yacht Club at Port St Mary will be running a shore based Day Skipper course commencing Wednesday 12th November. The course which is run by Rodger Clague  runs for 20 weeks and is from 1900-2100 each Wednesday.

Its a great opportunity to broaden your knowledge and something that you can build on as you go forward with your sailing. Areas covered include navigation, safety, tides and many other useful subjects.

Places are limited to five and if you are interested or need more information please call Rodger on 327990 or email crewtraining@manx.net

The nights are drawing and the course is also an opportunity to get out of the house on a Wednesday night rather than watching TV. You can always use Sky+ to record Coronation Street or your favourite prgramme.

It was a busy day in Peel on Saturday, with plenty of shoppers out and about at Shoprite, Derby Road and Shoprite, Michael Street. They were greeted by the Flag Day volunteers, Doug Pattie, Susan Corran, Helen Trimble, Roy and Val Limmer, Harry and Nadine Gordon, Linda McCauley, Doreen Kelly, Dorothy Flint, Midge Dunn, Irene Gardener, Tina Kelly and Ellie McCauley. Collecting buckets at the ready and with lots of chatting and good humour the generous people of Peel raised over £550 which is brlliant. Well done everyone and thanks for all the help.
