Call For Newsletter Articles & Trophy Nominations
Published 11:07 on 3 Oct 2020
Dear Club Member,
So far, it has been an interesting year, both on and off the water. Those of you who sought respite from the COVID-19 storm by taking to sea on the East Coast Cruise sailed into a quite different kind of storm, which must have occasioned some stirring stories.
If you wish to share your interesting year so far - sailing stories, advice, disasters and lessons learnt, as well as how you are dealing with the COVID-19 situation, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org for publication in the Autumn edition of the Club magazine.
The Golden Log Trophy will be awarded for the best account of a members' voyage published in the newsletter. This trophy is usually presented at the Fitting Out Supper.
There are also other non-race trophies that we usually try to award each year:
The Underwater Trophy:
Frequently awarded to someone who has fallen in.
The Black Ball Trophy:
For navigational misdemeanours, usually running aground.
The Walker Achievement Cup:
For an achievement on or off the water worthy of recognition.
The Seamanship Trophy:
For a noteworthy show of skill on the water.
The two Sam Poulton tankards:
Each to be awarded for services to the club (off the water).
The trophy from John Robson's family:
To be awarded to the boat/crew that have travelled furthest from their home port on a cruise.
Please send your nominations for these awards to me at email@example.com.
Keep safe and well. Looking forward to hearing from you,
