Following the fire which has destroyed Land Cove Sailing Club’s dinghy storage shed be vigilant when in the vicinity of the GFS Clubhouse.

Please if you use the club at any stage make sure all doors are locked and deadlocked. This especially applies to the sliding doors onto the deck. Check them after they are locked to ensure that the pin is fully engaged in the lock. Make sure the alarm is activated at all times when there is no one in the club.

The committee is addressing other measures to heighten our security.

Our condolences go out to Land Cove Sailing Club and particularly the young sailors who have lost their boats as a result of the fire. There is already a ‘crowd funding’ site at https://www.gofundme.com/help-save-our-club-after-the-fire  which has already raised over $8500.

It is hoped that this is an isolated arson attack and not a return to the spate of fires which devastated waterfront buildings a few years ago.
