Summer Newsletter 2017

Whilst the reduced subs this year has been positively greeted by most members, and moving the subscription date from January to May, to save members venturing out in the bad weather, there are still some members who fail to pay on time and moan about paying the re-joining fee. Renewal is available between the 1st of April and the 30thof May, so please try to renew between these dates as it makes life so much easier for everyone. Sandra postponed her holiday until the 8th of June to ensure any...

Spring Newsletter 2017

Whilst we all need wind to sail, the last couple of months has been a right pain, February saw us drifting, becalmed in still airs and March has seen us sheltering from the elements, I guess that's sailing for you. Tony has stepped down as race organiser so Dave Britton will organise the Barge races and Barry luckin will organise the super yachts, ( thats anything over a metre in length). As last year his A class appeared to be in a class of its own, I look forward to seeing some of you make ...

February 2017 Newsletter

To all our club members, I have been unanimously voted to have a go at writing the Newsletter this month, funnily enough the person who voted me to do this has many names, but for most of us gentle folk we call him Paul over Commodore. So here goes me lovelies! Firstly, on a very important note; I would like everybody in the Club to know that one of our well known members, Jim Cosburn, is very unwell and is being visited by a certain few members as and when his illness allows. These members w...

Yule Newsletter 2016

Firstly I’m sure you’ll all agree we’ve had a good sailing season. The AGM was quite well supported, but I’ll highlight some of the topic’s we discussed in this news letter for those members who were not able to attend. It had been brought to my attention that I may not adhere 100% to the constitution whilst running the club. All I could say was, I do my best to follow the rules, but events and issues do mean that sometimes I or the committee has ...

September 2016 Newsletter

Well a superb summer season is fast coming to a close and this is the time of year when the committee starts to plan any changes that we’d like to introduce. Oh no, what now I hear you sigh! Firstly, I’d like to close the boat-clubs bank account and replace it with one that allows the secretary and the treasurer to have a debit card. This will make buying things such as the cups, sugar and inks on line a lot easier, plus with the closure of many local banks, depositing money is becoming mor...

July 2016 Newsletter

Greetings all and I do hope you're enjoying the hot, dry summer. The council were quite happy with our plans to repair the clubs exterior and the cost of the materials came out exactly the same as our rent. So rather than we hold back our rent and buy the materials, it was much easier for them to purchase the materials and we pay the rent as usual. Please keep an eye on the notice board, because in the next few weeks we will be carrying out a good deal of work on the clubhouse and needless to s...

April 2016 Newsletter

Greetings all. The alterations to our catering supplies has worked a treat, as a result the worktop and storage jars are a lot more hygienic. I’ve had one or two complaints on the changes, namely; the sachets of sugar can make a mess when tearing them open, the biscuit container should never have been removed and by keeping the price of a hot drink at 20p I’ve increased the price in a stealth like way, because you used to get biscuits included for the same price. I’m not going to repeat the c...
