Sad news

We have just learned that member John Shackleton sadly died on Christmas Eve.

He had known he had cancer for six years and went through and benefitted from many different treatments during those years, all the while knowing it was not curable.

He was a very determined man who believed strongly that “you can not afford a bad day” whatever life was throwing at you and he tried hard to live up to that.

Wherever he lived and worked around the world, sailing was his main love and John was thrilled to have his lugger(s) on Bassenthwaite. Despite his many physical challenges John determined that he was fit enough to sail his beloved Lugger even as late as this last summer.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to his wife Gwen at this sad time.

John’s funeral is being held at 11am Monday 4th January in Accrington Crematorium, Lancs


followed by nosh at John’s favourite Carvery –

The Game Cock, Great Harwood, Lancashire, BB6 7UH

Please let me know if you will come for nosh?

Family flowers only – donations if wished to East Lancashire Hospice

Season’s Greetings 

Wishing one and all a very merry Christmas, and a happy and prosperous New Year for 2016.

May the winds be fair, the sun shine, and the rain not be as persistent!

Important info and pics from the Commodore taken earlier today⛵️⛴🚤

Thankfully the flood water has not reached the clubhouse floor but the outbuildings are badly flooded. I’m sure there will be numerous working parties organised when the clean-up operation commences but we must be careful that each area is safe before access is made. Mike Cowan isolated the electricity supplies to most of the outbuildings some days ago. Dave (N) will carry out a survey of the electrical supplies across the site tomorrow (Monday), if the water level recedes, and will isolate all remaining supplies other than those in the clubhouse.
Please do not access outbuildings until the electricity supplies have been a isolated and made safe (remember we now have a 460Volt supply to the site).There will inevitably be damage to equipment and it is very important that we have photographs of any damage for insurance purposes. When any outhouse doors are opened for the first time it’s important that photographs are taken before any equipment is moved. Any damaged equipment must be photographed and retained until such time as the loss adjuster has been to the site and has given us written permission to dispose of any items.

64th Annual Prize Giving and Dinner Dance

IMG_2099.JPG The Greenhill Hotel hosted this year’s dinner dance where 82 guests enjoyed a hearty meal, followed by a resume of the year by Commodore Mark Somerville, and the award of the season’s prizes by Mark’s wife Kirstie. Many guests then burned off a calorie or two on the dance floor for a couple of hours.

Sailing Secretary Jon Denwood had a specs malfunction but Tog came to his aid with this magnificent contraption
