Things are really beginning to look more sunny!
It was such a thrill to see that two of our Officers have been recognised in the Queen’s Birthday honours list.
I am sure you will all join me in congratulating Matt and Simon on such a fine achievement.
We are indeed fortunate to have such dedicated active enthusiasts as members. So proud to have them both with us on the General Committee and highly value their enthusiasm and dedication.
Our Club re opening programme has continued at a pace.
We are changing to a curry menu to vary the offering from next Wednesday 16th June . Orders will need to be placed by 6.00 pm Monday 14th June. Details available else where on the site.
The success of Wednesday nights and the support received has allowed us to proceed further in appointing a permanent Caterer.
Sailing activities are continuing to grow with a strong fleet on Wednesdays a growing youth sailing activity on Saturday mornings and Saturday afternoon dinghy cruising . The crows nest is now manned by volunteers on a rota basis for racing.
The drainage works programme is continuing towards completion in November. In the mean time we we have reclaimed the Club forecourt whilst the treatment plant is being delivered. Once installed we will be able to look to a more permanent restitution of the entrance area to the club.
We will shortly be starting on some further repairs to Riverside to extend its life until such time as a more permanent structure can be funded in the years ahead.
At long last I have had the pleasure of being back on the water, and of course relearning that the boom can still pack a punch if one stands in its way!
