2014 Diary.

The 2014 diary is now available to view in the tabs at the top of the blog!.

As you will see there is some great news from Gordon the new Exhibition Sec!, we are going back to Lyme Park after a few years break, it seems there is a new events manager there now and he has agreed with Gordon for us to attend the Fathers Day event this year in June.
We have also been given a chance to go back again in September, this will be decided after the show in June, the new manager will obviously want to see the results of our behaviour at the first event!.
I'm sure everyone who has attended this great venue in the past will be as happy as I am to be going back there.
As you will see there are a few other new venues this year so it looks like it's going to be a good year again, but don't forget it's only as good as the attendance/effort the members put into it.

The days are getting longer now, but as I was saying to my friend Bob the Abell the worse weather is nearly always Febuary and March but looking at this years diary we have at least got plenty to look forward to this year.
The Commodores Challenge the year will be a Blind sailing event ??, see the tab at the top of the blog for details.
Well thats it for now, will enter the Commodores Challenge later today!. Entered now!

Next club meeting, 22nd Jan 2014

Hi Folks, been a bit busy since the Christmas holidays, but now settled back into the routine again.
If you missed the last club meeting as I did, we missed an impromptu auction I believe which raised about £300+, very nice!.
Well you are in luck again as Mike the Social sec phoned me to let you know that the next club meeting will be another Auction!, this time it is the Tools, kits and Boats of the late Ron Gill who sadly passed away recently.
Mrs Gill also has some Campervan equipment and a nearly new dishwasher she wants to sell, if you are interested in these type of non boat related things, if you contact Mike Hodgson  he will be able to confirm what is available and put you in touch with Mrs Gill.
Well, all being well I will certainly be at the next meeting and I'm sure the newer members will benefit from these auctions, as there are always bargains to be had there.

Next Meeting 22nd January 2014
Hope you all had a great Christmas and New year and are getting over the festivities and hangovers, see you at the next meeting!.
As you can see the header picture has been changed by John (the other moderator) to reflect the weather, hopefully it won't be too long before we are back to the Spring Header!.

Food for thought.

Happy New Year!.

Happy New Year to everyone.

Well the last event of what I thought was a very successful year for the club was held at the Frostbite Day Sail, and though it was a very cold and windy day the hardy members of the club were out on the landing stage having a sail, at least they didn't have to break any ice this year!.
The more sense-abell of us went in the clubhouse and stayed there having a good chat and enjoying the delicious hot soup and buns provided by Mike the social sec doing his usual great job.

Speaking of great jobs!, I'm sure you will join me in congratulating the committee for a good year past and wishing the incoming new members of this years team all the best in their efforts to provide us with another great year. You've heard of the Two Ronnies? well we have now got the Two Alan's, Alan Breeze the Commodore and Alan Higham his Vice Commodore, not forgetting Gordon Longworth the new Exhibition Sec, Good luck in your efforts and endeavours you guys!.

Once again Happy New Year and enjoy another years sailing, hopefully with a bit better weather!.

A couple of Boat Pics for you, you should have a boat picture on every post shouldn't you.
These are pictures taken and sent by David Swindells of his Jet boat earlier this year.

Nice action shots David.
Nearly forgot, message from Andy, Club Sec.

Could you post the following information on the Website.
I had reason to return to the landing stage today (Tuesday) after 6 PM to retrieve an item I had left behind after sailing this morning.   Luckily My lost item was still where I had left it.   I also found a Transmitter/Controller.   It was left on the landing stage floor, switched on, and totally abandoned.   If the owner of this Item can describe it by make and model, I shall be pleased to return it to them.

Andy Glen
Owner now found thank you!.

I posted about this a while back, saying it would be a good policy to put your name on your tranny so it could be identified quicker and returned to the owner so you are not off the water waiting to get it back!.

That's all folks.
