Keep the Galley Going!
Centreboard sailors, parents and supporters would know what a great and convenient service the Galley provides on any given Sunday racing day. Sadly though, it’s becoming a real strain for just one person to manage alone. Rather than have to shut up shop, let’s try and give a helping hand and keep the Galley going. Let me tell you that if the kids aren’t able to get their bag of mixed lollies, or worse still, I don’t me stretchy green Killer Pythons the consequences are not worth thinking about.
The Galley is scheduled to be open again this Sunday for the Applecross Cup Series. If you or know of someone else that could spare a couple of hands, please sign up as a volunteer – click here. No experience required. An experienced person will always be there to guide you.
Galley operating times: Open 0845 to 1330 Closed during racing Reopen 1530 to 1700
If you need further information, please contact the Galley Co-ordinator, Karen Lingard
Phone: 0422 805 385
