Normal Sunday bar opening times will be extended and mince pies and mulled wine will be served
Please come and support the club and help recognise our race winners and volunteers who have dedicated so much time and effort at the club, this past year
November 2023 Newsletter
Another month of low pressure systems and strong winds interspersed with a few days of no wind has again ruined most people’s sailing and racing opportunities. All the cruiser fleet is now safely onshore for the winter, but the Darts will continue to hope for some compliant weather to continue racing on the high tide weekends.
Roy Sheriff, our long-standing club secretary and cruiser stalwart has unfortunately had to resign from the committee this month for personal reasons and Chantelle has very kindly stepped in, to replace him as secretary. Roy has been a fantastic asset to the club and committee for many years and we all hope and expect to see him fighting fit and sailing again next season.
This month also saw the passing of Mike Potts, one of our most senior and long-standing members and our thoughts are with his wife Ginny and the family at this sad time.
On the social side, the club has just hosted a Halloween Party. Many thanks to Sue, Angie and their teams for putting on a great event. It was fabulous to see so many children at the club and let’s hope that we can encourage some of them to join us sailing in the future.
Keep your eyes peeled for notifications of other upcoming social events, training courses and other activities being held at the club over the winter.
We recognise that everyone has to start somewhere and may need some help along the way.
Contact the training officer in the first instance to arrange for one to one training – let him/her know what boat you have or plan to sail, and what help you need, and he’ll pair you up and get you going.
