CYC site closed from Sunday 27 February to Saturday 5 March

The entire Cargreen Yacht Club site will be closed to all members (including carparking) from Sunday 27th Feb until Saturday 5th March.

This is to allow the operation of heavy plant machinery and the stockpiling of material for the repair of the causeway. This work is being done for us by a contractor. We have been asked to close the site for safety reasons.

Furuno GPS problem - MCA Notice

The Maritime & Coastguard Agency would like to make operators aware that products with Furuno Global Positioning System (GPS) chips for position or UTC (Coordinated Universal Time), may produce an error o nand after January 2nd, 2022.

Stand-alone Furuno GPS receivers and equipment using Furuno GPS chips, could produce data that is 19.7 years in the past, therefore generating errors in both the GPS position and date (19th May 2002). The 19.7 year date error may result in instability in positioning, causing position errors, including failure of GPS position acquisition, etc.

The MCA Notice (Safety Bulletin 25) with details of the units affected is linked here.
