Commodores News 27/3/2021
Many thanks to all those who ‘tuned in’ to watch our virtual AGM – last Saturday
We’re all used to small Zoom meetings but to hold an AGM this way was quite bizarre! Anyway we survived and probably had the biggest ‘turnout’ ever – we believe over 150!
(was this because it was at 5 pm – or just the novelty aspect?!)
For those who didn’t attend – we informed about various exciting developments;
- The terrace proposals going for planning permission
- The appointment of our new Chief Instructor, Jack Lawson
- The near completion of our new training room (along with mural)
- Lockdown completion of new fire escape from dining room & kitchen
- The overgrown Beech hedges have been removed and a new , neater version will appear soon, providing more boat parking!
- Dredging has been completed around the keelboat jetties – and I thank Dave Heron for managing this process and jumping through planning hoops etc!
Learn to sail
With our new on-site Sailing Instructor, our provision for teaching or improving sailing skills is greatly enhanced and more available to both adults & juniors – please spread the word to friends & family.

This finishes at the end of March so please arrange for your boat to be moved/launched by your own means – obviously if you live away and travel restrictions prevent you travelling, please contact the above to discuss – many thanks.

As usual, please bring gardening tools; gloves, brushes, wheelbarrows, enthusiasm etc to fill the skip
- please can I also point out that whenever we have a skip – this is for club debris only – please take home all personal rubbish (bottles, recycling, boat parts etc)
The first social list was emailed out recently – please stay aware of possible last minute changes.
A separate email will be following soon with specific instructions regarding the safe re-opening of the club
