With the briefing today at Mylor Yacht Club for the start of the 2019 Falmouth Shrimper Association Rally we look forward to a Sail across Falmouth Bay to the Helford River in Ysella to join in the fun. Thursday night at the Port Navass Yacht Club is going to be the perfect location for one of many socials. We have been busy in the run up to today with arranging additional launching of boats for some of the participants who have joined from further afield. Clearly not an issue for the Windsport Team who are familiar with the launch and recovery of many Cornish Shrimpers who use Windsport for Winter storage and all manner of boat maintenance and repairs.
We are also helping service, a new owners to the local fleet boat which is in need of some TLC on its Centre board Bolt and Centreboard. The Bolt has been replaced and now we are just ensuring the pivoting centreboard is in suitable condition and rust free to offer many more hours of untroubled use.
On top of this we have a running repair on a Rudder stock which needs re-gluing and making good for the season.
