Subscription Renewals

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.

High Winds

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?

Stop Press!

IMG_1915 The last Sunday before Christmas was very wild, but so mild the only place Santa found some snow to park on was Skiddaw so he had to hitch a lift to the club in one of our Dories.

While waiting for his arrival, there were games, face painting, and a tea party.

The children were clearly excited to greet him, and he was invited into the clubhouse where he handed out some presents, and sang a few songs before leaving for his next engagement!

It’s All Over

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

Annual Dinner 2014

2014-11-29 23.03.28

These Queens were so crowned for supporting their kids during training (and other times too!)

The annual dinner dance was held at Hundith Hill Hotel last night, and was attended by 80 members and guests, including Bass Week friends Kevin Bilham and Gary Ungless and their wifes. In fact their efforts to attend were recognised during Commodore Andy Smith’s speech and alternate prize giving when they were awarded a a spare trailer wheel (due to be proudly displayed in the home club of Ely!).

AJ could be more exposed than he usually is (whilst cleaning) if he sports the new garment awarded for being King of the mop!

The Queen’s to the left received their crowns for the ongoing support of their children through sail training and beyond.

Winter Series Update

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!
