A word from the commodore

Did someone say it was August? What, already? Well by date it is, if not by weather. This means we are at the rough mid-point of the summer season. Although we have had sessions not run due to too little wind we have also had some unseasonably blowy days impact on sailing.

Training for the remainder of the season is by one-to-one arrangements due to the availability of our experienced training team. So if people do have the training they would like to do please contact the club and we will try to pair you up with a trainer and date.

We have taken the decision to cancel the Endurance Race we had scheduled in September so the committee can focus their efforts on the main club social on the 23rd Sept. Further details will be sent out as they are finalised but please ask any of the committee how the Reggatta/Ceilidh works – it is a really good night with a fabulous band and fun dancing. Even if you don’t sail I can highly recommend the Ceilidh – as with all socials the more folks come along the better it is so please do try to come. (Says he who will very reluctantly miss it this year due to work).

We have revised the sailing program and this revised copy should have dropped into members inboxes. Boats away have been set as 4 Nov (meet at the club at 10 am). We are yet to set the date for the general meeting in October but will advise of this once a date has been established – this is an important meeting as it is when you, the members, decide who will lead your club for the next year. We will have a particular need for a Secretary and Commodore/Vice commodore (sailing) but if you are interested in any position in the committee or simply getting more involved in guiding the club, this is the meeting to attend. If you have any questions – please ask any of the committee members and they can guide you further.

All for now

Yours – Mark
