Despite the very typical bank holiday weather I hope that you were able to enjoy the long weekend either on or off the water.
As you will have seen from Barry's recent email , our social events are ramping up through this month and I hope there is something there that you will be tempted to join in with. Our sailing events also continue through this month and Tim would love to hear from you if your thinking of coming along to any of them.
The first of our RYA training courses will start on 22nd of this month, and this will be an 8 week Day Skipper classroom based course. This course is ideal for anyone looking to get involved in water based activities for the first time, or to underpin their practical experience with sound knowledge. Its very useful across the whole range of water sports - paddle boarding, gig rowing, kayaking, barge crewing as well as sailing and power boating of course.
From 23rd November we are planning to run an 8 week classroom based Yacht Master course. As the next step up from Day Skipper, the timing of this course will allow any of this years DS students to gain both qualifications in one training season. It's a logical step for anyone already holding the DS certificate, but its not essential that you do.
Dates for our VHF and First Aid courses are still to be finalised and will be published soon.
If you are interested in any of our training courses please get in touch with Jo Smith at email@example.com for more information and to register.
If you are interested in becoming an instructor for any of the courses we run, please also get in touch with Jo.
As you will be well aware, the passing of Andrea has left us without a club secretary.
The role of secretary predominantly involves taking the minutes at our monthly General Committee meetings & circulating them with the various internal reports. It also includes reporting on and responding to correspondence directed to the General Committee and preparation for the AGM.
If you would like to become our club secretary or discuss any aspect of the role further, please do get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All the best
