Call For Newsletter Articles & Trophy Nominations

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 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 for publication in the next 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

Keep safe and well. Looking forward to hearing from you,

Barry Fix

Rear Commodore
