Club News | November 25th, 2015 | No comments yet

Our club’s Annual General Meeting on Wednesday was well attended and, most importantly, voted-in the new Constitution and the new committee.

The Constitution has been the subject of consultation with members throughout the year so you should already be well aware of it but, just in case, the new consititution can be downloaded via the link below:

The committee elected to run the club for the next year is:

Gary Carter, Alan Gilmour, Trish Lloyd, Mike Martin, Tony Martin, Esther Rackley, Trevor Rackley, and Paul Sharpe.

Minutes of the AGM will be issued within the next few weeks.

Our next evening meeting is the annual Photo Competition on Wednesday 9th December, 7:45pm for 8:00pm start as usual.  You are invited to submit photographs with a sailing theme, which will be displayed and voted upon by members.  This year we will judge separate categories covering seascapes/landscapes, yachts/boats, humorous/odd, etc plus an overall winner.  Elegant and well-balanced prizes “with floral notes and a lingering finish” will be awarded!

Up to three photos can be submitted by each club member but, if numbers become excessive, we may need to limit entries so, in addition to a caption, please number your photos 1, 2, 3 with 1 being the photo you most wish exhibited and 3 being the least.  Photos don’t have to be taken during the past year, but they must be your own work.

Please email your photos, with captions and numbers (1, 2, 3 as above) to, by no later than 12:00 midday on Friday 4th December.
