Calendar for 2012
We have a shared Google Calendar for Team Viking. I am working on making it public, but for the moment I have sent out a PDF of it. If there are any dates anyone wants me to add, please let me know

Viking Regatta
We are going to restart the Viking regatta this year. After chatting with Mark Neal, we are now looking at a Saturday Afternoon and using the Skiff Club premises. mark will also help with buoying the course and liaising with the Environment agency etc

Training / Permits
We have a few people looking at doing the SSWAC FRST course in May.
We will run a Paddlepower course for scouts on Thursday evenings.
We will approach the yacht club about running a sailing course for our scouts. We may ask teh group to contribute a bit to the cost of this.

Giles will discuss using Island Barn Dinghies in our Scout night sessions
If we agree this, we should dispose of our old dinghies

We only have two or three unserviceable kayaks at the moment, but need to purchase smaller kayaks
Phil Byrne-Jones to look at canoe trips ... Staines to Walton or Windsor to Walton
David to ask around if there are advantages to us joining the BCU as a club

Need to try and get our boats to feel more like Home Counties Gigs
