In the early hours of New Year’s day, our membership system, WebCollect, auto generated renewals and emailed members the categories that are being renewed, and the method of collection.
A subsequent email seems to have caused some confusion resulting in various members duplicating their subscription order. These additional orders are being monitored and corrected as necessary.
If changes to your membership categories from last year are necessary either let David know, or login and make the necessary amendments.
If you wish to take up an option to pay for camping weekends at a discounted rate, this can be added without having to re-enter your membership categories.
If you have any queries or concerns, do not hesitate to contact us.
It has been noticed that a Supernova has been blown off its trailer and is on its side leaning onto another boat. No obvious damage at present, but it needs lifting onto its trailer and tied down.
With the current round of high winds, pop down to the club and check your boat is secure and safe. What else is there to do at this time of year?
Wishing all our members, friends and visitors a very merry Christmas
Graham Kirkpatrick has brought our attention to an article from Cowes week which is an interesting read if you fancy a spot of light reading over Christmas

Vice-Commodore- Robin Dawson
Hon Treasurer – William Carruthers
Hon Secretary – Pauline Nicholson
Hon Sailing Secretary – Jon Denwood
Asst Sailing Sec-Lezli-Ann Pearson
Hon Auditor-Kirstie Somerville
Some healthy discussions were held on various aspects of membership and sailing, and an inflationary increase of subscriptions was agreed.
With business completed while there was still some daylight, Mark thanked Andy Smith, on behalf of the membership, for his input and efforts over the last four years
What little breeze there was this morning quickly disappeared leaving a mirror like lake, and the OD quickly hoisted N over A to abandon the final race of the season. Joan/Jack were not displeased and they had turned up to defend their lead in the series, but their competition may have been limited due to a lack of interest after last night’s annual dinner
Whilst there is glorious sunshine there is a total lack of wind so the OD has abandoned sailing for the day.
Last weekend there was only one race as the second race was cancelled due to no wind. Jim C won on the water in his Supernova, but Joan/Jack won on fleet handicap just 5 secs ahead of Ian in his Solo. Joan’s win took her into the series pole position one point ahead of Tony who still leads the personal handicap series.
One final deciding race next Sunday followed by the AGM!
