A belated Happy New Year to you all,
I hope you're all looking forward to the light evenings and the start of the new sailing season. A couple of things coming up include;
The 2017 Sailing Programme
This year's programme is in the final stages of development and will include all the old favourites plus some new ideas. The spring series should be busier than usual with members from Harlow & Blackwater Sailing Club joining us whilst their ramp is repaired, so please come along and swell the numbers. The new programme will appear first on the club website over the next couple of weeks with hard copies to be sent out shortly after that with your 2017/18 membership & fee renewal invoices.
Pre-Season Work Party - Saturday 25th March
Make a note in your diaries. As usual we will meet at the club from 10 a.m.
Jobs this time will include ramp cleaning, cutting up old boats and tidying up the garage. If you have any personal items in the garage that you wish to keep then please advise us in advance. Please bring appropriate clothing, footwear and any tools you think may be useful. Angle grinders will be particularly useful for cutting up old boats based on the knowledge gained at the last work party.
See you soon
Geoffrey Walkley receives the Desmond Bennett Trophy for 2016.
The Des Bennett Trophy, awarded for exceptional service to the club, was presented at the Annual Prize Giving dinner at the the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club in Burnham on the 4th December. This marked the end of four years as Commodore and many years committed to the safe running of the club.
We all thank you Geoffrey.
