Club Treasurer Urgently Required

Since the last AGM we have not had an official treasurer which is imperative if we are to operate within the terms of the Club’s constitution. If anyone is interested in applying for this position (or knows of someone who may be interested), please contact me (via the office) for an initial discussion. Jason Wild, Commodore.

Adult development training sessions

Hi everyone, We have pencilled in some training dates into the new programme for the new season. The idea is to encourage people on to the water and ideally join in club racing. The format will hopefully be as follows (i) 25th April – RYA Improver training followed by (ii) 2nd May – RYA Start Racing. This will be replicated in the summer on the following dates: (i) 4th July - RYA Improver training followed by (ii) 18th July - RYA Start Racing. None of these dates have been confirmed by the RYA as yet. Cost per training session should be £10-15 and you will need access to a Laser. If you are interested in joining in please register your interest by emailing me back ASAP ( Regards Tom Baily (Laser Class Captain)

WYC Boot Fair

We have a huge pile of unclaimed sailing garments "picked up" around the changing rooms. The plan is to hold a mini boot fair at the working party (funds will be used to purchase a particular item at the Club or the RNLI - we'll decide later). So, if you don't want to re-purchase your own item, I suggest you pop in the Club before 13th March. I also suggest you practice your haggling skills as I drive a very hard bargain. Melanie. PS: all undergarments have been destroyed - sorry!!

Tea Bar Staff Required

To work at weekends throughout the sailing season and at various sailing events. Please contact the office if you are interested, or know of anyone else who may be interested. Melanie
