The clocks have gone back and suddenly it feels like winter is upon us, but there are still plenty of events and activities at MLSC to pass these colder days and longer nights. Here's what's going on:
There's just time to get on board for our VHF SRC course this Sunday (7th). Places are still available, but be quick as some prep reading is required in advance of this course.
Places are also still available on our RYA Yachtmaster Theory 8 week course starting on 23rd November. A really valuable way of spending long winter nights.
We'll be finalising dates for the First Aid and Diesel Engine Maintenance courses soon, so if you're interested in either of these, and haven't told us so already, please do get in touch with Jo.
Please contact Jo Smith for all things training related at firstname.lastname@example.org
My thanks to Barry and the Social Team for their hard work in providing us with the great social events so far this season. There's lots more to come so please do give them your support.
The cut off date for the Laying Up Supper is 8th November, so if you'd like to join us for our first formal meal since lockdown started all those months ago, please do make sure you book your tickets with Jenny at email@example.com or 07973 386668.
Thursday games evenings are up and running with Backgammon, Cribbage & Rummicub, and all members & guests are very welcome to join in.
Look out for Barry's emails to see what's happening on the social scene and don't forget the club is open this Saturday evening during and after the Maldon Fireworks for hotdogs and mulled wine.
For many of us sailing is something to start dreaming about for next year, but first we need to present our non-racing trophies at the Laying Up Supper later this month. So if you have any nominations for any of these trophies do let us know:
- Underwater Trophy - For anyone that's taken an involuntary dip this year
- Black Ball Trophy - Navigational misdemeanour(s) usually running aground
- Walker Achievement Cup - An achievement on or off the water worthy of recognition.
- Seamanship Trophy - A noteworthy piece of boat handling or similar
We're also looking forward to presenting, for the first time, the John Robson trophy for the boat that travelled furthest from its home port during the season. So if you managed to get much further than Bench Head this year let us know, you could be in the running for this trophy!
If you have started dreaming of next year's sailing, and have something that you would like included in our 2022 programme let Tim know and we'll try to fit it in.
For all things sailing related including joining the Christmas Cruise contact Tim at firstname.lastname@example.org
It's nearly time for the production of our Autumn newsletter and Barry would love to receive your contributions for it. All kinds of contributions are welcome; accounts of cruises or events this year, old stories worth re-telling or tell us about you and your boat - we're interested!
Please send all contributions to Barry Fix at email@example.com
Our annual sponsored row in aid of the RNLI is back on bank holiday Monday 3rd January 2022.
Information and entry forms are available on the website and early entry into this event would be much appreciated. If you'd like to be involved in the organisation of the event or supporting on the day, please get in touch with Jeanette at firstname.lastname@example.org
All the best
