Hello Mrs Seabadger

while I think the prices you are charging for tea & coffee are perfectly reasonable I'm not sure I agree with putting up the cost of drinks to cover the cost of petrol!

I suppose I feel that 1. it penalizes visitors and non-sailors (who don't use the rescue boat services) and 2. it is rather an uncertain income stream because the sailors could quite easily boycott the drinks! I appreciate that this is highly unlikely given that we are talking about sailors here.

What about charging those who sail a fee for the fuel, and putting up subs / day sailing fees? It is not as if fuel is ever going to go down in price so we are all going to have to get used to paying more for things that use petrol/diesel.

all the best

Lucy

Thanks everyone. I will stand my ground. A few breezy winter days and they'll be glad that the rescue boat has fuel!



A more pressing problem now is to work out how many days over Christmas Seabadger and myself can abandon the family and go sailing. (I have my mother staying, a non sailing husband and son - but an addicted daughter). I wonder if anyone will believe I "have" to go "shopping" on Christmas eve (and boxing day and the day after). - will they notice the wet sailing gear?

HAPPY CHRISTMAS

Try to fake a severe case of synchronised PMT. The boys will know how to recognise the signs and take cover, your mum will be reminded of her younger years and sympathise. You will all spend a wonderful time, being absolutely certain that you're doing a favour to the others.

Besides, a bit of quality time with son and mother-in-law on Christmas Eve (and Boxing Day... ) is quite a treat for a modern, understanding man.

Have fun girls!!

40 pennith is more the reasonable, remebr inflation - Thatchers britain and all!!!

If people are winging about the extra 5 pence then lets be fair they are DEFFO in the wrong sport!!  You cant even buy a stainless screw for that!!

 

I bet the people that winge are the bar sailors, we all know them and every club has them, they sit indoors commenting on everyones boats, how they are sailing, what they are doing wrong.  They also seem to want to give you tips when you come in off the water after just winning a race.

 

BUT how often do we see them out on the water - never. 

 

INFACT im gonna start a new thread about bar sailors, lets name and shame them

Sea badgers mum.

Put it up to 1.50 and start drawing a wage to cover all the voluntary work  you do. Include going shopping for the tea/ coffee, fresh milk on a sunday morning. If you booked all the hours you do even at minimum wage I bet the galley wouldnt make enough to cover the costs.

These people dont realise the amount of work done by the few to keep their club up nd running.

We pay 30p per mug of tea of coffee at Hunts and very nice it is too (I have to say that my gf works in the Galley).

Go to grafham though and it is much more expensive (and IMO not as nice).

Just my 2p though, I know where I would rather sail!
