Spring Newsletter 2018

Greetings all. As in past, news in spring is always a bit sparse as the weather has restricted a lot of sailing, however the monthly races have gone ahead and looking at the results, Brian C is on track to win the barge cup, no surprise there I hear you say, but we as a club, have to find ways of beating Basher Bob as he is romping ahead in the 1 metre and super yacht class, in the last race he was 12 minutes ahead of the rest of us, so come on boys, get building, tweaking or buying a boat to...

Yule Newsletter 2017

As a few of you know, I've been thinking about stepping down this year, but couldn't find anyone who was interested in taking over, although one or two of you were willing to join the committee should anyone leave it. But now the club is running smoothly, we're in a good financial position and the council are very happy with the way we behave around the pond, and maintain the clubhouse, next year may be an ideal time for someone more socially skilled than myself to take over, because I know I ca...

October 2017 Newsletter

Firstly I’d like to thank the membership for the consideration shown towards the wildlife that share the lake. I know many of you try to police the lake by explaining to members of the public that BREAD dehydrates and kill the birds, only to be told to do one! Likewise if you see the row boats chasing the young birds, you shout out for them to behave, even if it is to no avail. Unfortunately, we seem to be the easy non-confrontational option to blame for the death of all and any wildlife on the...

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 ...
