Meet the  club’s directors & committee for 2023-24  below.  Most committee members are taking on more than one role due to the lack of volunteers  – if you think you can help, please contact the committee.

 Chris Palmer 2019 (4)

Chris Palmer

Club Commodore


Chris has been cruising since the 90s, mainly
in the Blackwater in Essex, where he owned
his own boat for a while, but also on the south coast, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and the Mediterranean.  He is an RYA
Coastal Skipper and has been in Boaters since 2016.


 Charles Hessey

Charles Hessey

Cruising Secretary and Safety Officer

Charles has been sailing for 15 years plus, regularly covering over 1000 Nm a year. He  is a skipper for BB charter weekends and has organised Corfu charter trips.  While he does race his own boat he admits to rarely troubling the podium in regatta sailing, unless it is in his home waters, but do ask him about the  major trophy he won when the wind really blew in his favour!


Esther Rackley

Social Secretary

Roland O’Connor

Membership Secretary and Shore-based
Training Coordinator
