I hope that everyone is keeping safe and well and just in case you need something to pass the time here are some more puzzles for you.
It is with sadness that I share the news of the death of Life Member Jean Oyler. A regular at the club on Wednesday and Friday evenings until recently, she will be greatly missed. Our thoughts are with her family at this time.

Notices to Mariners (NtM) from the Crouch Harbour Authority
NTM NO.10 OF 2020 -WEDNESDAY 25TH MARCH 2020
COVID 19 Restrictions
Recreational and Leisure Activities
We are issuing this notice in line with current Government Coronavirus (COVID 19) restrictions issued on Monday 23 March 2020.
To reduce social contact travel and potential strain on emergency services, we strongly recommend that all recreational and leisure activities on the tidal rivers Crouch and Roach are avoided until the current Government restrictions are relaxed.
Our priority is to keep the harbour open and functioning as long as possible. From 9 March the Crouch Harbour Authority implemented contingency planning measures to separate key workers who maintain our harbour patrols, pilot services and office staff. As a result of our resilience measures we have a reduced capability in responding to leisure incidents and enquiries. Although the harbour office is closed to the public it remains open for business by email and telephone. We regret that there may be delays when responding to routine enquiries.
We ask for your cooperation and understanding during the National Emergency.
Following today’s announcement from the Government, the pontoon can no longer remain open for use. We need to ensure that we follow all guidelines given. The committee will continue to respond to all new advice and we will communicate any changes to you all.
We ask that you respect the wishes of the committee who are fully supporting the guidance from the HM Government in order to combat the spread of the disease as quickly as possible.
Please note that the work party scheduled for the 4th April is cancelled until further notice.
In light of the current situation with Covid-19, we are suspending all club activity until at least the end of April. There will be no racing, junior training, social events or clubhouse facilities available. As a committee we are following all news and guidelines and will communicate any extension of this if and when it becomes clear it is necessary. Thank you for your patience and support during this time. The aim is to reopen and begin activities as soon as it is safe and appropriate to do so, and amendments to programmes and similar will be circulated prior to this. Please keep an eye on the website to keep up to date.
Just a reminder that if you want the discount you need to pay by the end of March.
