The RYA Yachtmaster Ocean shorebased course
This is the last date to let us know whether you wish to do the RYA Yachtmaster Ocean shorebased course. The RYA Yachtmaster Ocean shorebased course, plus proof of appropriate sea-time, leads to qualification as an RYA Yachtmaster Ocean, which is the highest cruising qualification.
The club is planning to run the shorebased course this winter, on Saturdays and Wednesdays in January and March 2018. The cost for RCYC members will be Â£150 all in, which includes the study pack of exercises and learning material, and this represents a substantial saving on courses offered by commercial training providers. The instructor will be our very own Hon Sec, Peter Morgan, who has extensive experience as both an instructor and as a cruising yachtsman. If you’re interested in doing the course, please register your interest with Chris Davis (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) or with Peter Morgan (email: email@example.com) by 27 October.
Wednesday 8th November – 12 for 12.30pm
Book your place!
Don’t forget to sign up for the meanderers’ lunch which is now only just over a week away. If you’ve been meandering this year, or even just thought about it, please book your place at the post season lunch at the Club on Wednesday November 8th, 12.00 for 12.30.
This is always a very jolly event, and an opportunity – for all those for whom a day on the water (with a long, leisurely lunch) is one of life’s great pleasures – to meet up and reminisce. If you know of possible future meanderers who are not current members why not consider bringing them as guests; it’s often a good way into the Club.
The menu with 2 and 3 course options is good value and attached here……and on the Meanderers’ page of the website.
Please be kind enough to sign up in the book in the bar with your choice of menu, or if that is tricky for you Hugh Kellett has said he will sign up for you if you email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. He has also asked for any good photos you have of this season’s days out to be emailed to him, for an undisclosed reason.
Planning a Christmas Party this year for friends, family, work colleagues?
If so, then look no further.
We have a fabulous menu on offer for just Â£20.00 per person.
Please contact our bar and catering team to reserve a table. Telephone 01326 311105 or call in to the Club for more details.
New Year’s Eve Dinner Dance – Sunday 31st December
menu and list to be announced next week…….
Salute to Nelson!
A traditional Trafalgar Dinner was held last Saturday where 55 Members and guests celebrated in memory of Lord Nelson with a delicious dinner and some very fine port. We were fortunate this year to have Rear Admiral Clink and his wife as our guest (pictured right). Well done to everyone involved in the organisation and our thanks to our bar and catering team for delivering a first class event.
29th October, 10am
Chacewater – Wheal Busy – Penstraze – Chacewater
A reminder of the walk taking place this Sunday along the byways of Chacewater, up to Wheal Busy and following roads and tracks through quiet countryside. The route back down through fields from Penstraze to Chacewater is quite steep. Under 4 miles, but muddy and uneven ground in places – sturdy footwear essential!
Meet at the entrance to the free Car Park in the centre of Chacewater for a 10.00 am start. The Chacewater car park is supported by the parishioners of Chacewater and although free there are honesty boxes to help maintain this car park in good order. To get there from the Truro direction, turn left after the Kings Head, TR4 8PY, into The Square. If the car park is full, there is on street parking on side roads, up the hill towards the school, also near the bottom of Kerley Hill. Please park considerately.
We will then return to the Clubhouse at approximately 1pm for a Carvery Lunch.
Friday Night Talks
‘The Wear and Tear of Horses in the Boer War’
Speaker John Head Veterinary Surgeon
Johnâ€™s grandfather, Lieutenant A S Head MRCVS also a veterinary surgeon, left for the Boer War on the 24th October 1899 from his job in Helston. He kept a detailed diary of the events that followed. John has transformed the diary into an illustrated talk to enable an interesting and informative evening for members. If you enjoyed War Horse you will enjoy this. In addition there is a half time quiz question with a giant Mars bar as the winning prize!
‘An Introduction to Truro Cathedral’
Speaker Susie Greenslade
Some of you may know Susie Greenslade as she used to man the office at RCYC some years ago. Susie is a â€œFriend” at Truro Cathedral and will give us an insight into the history and other goings on at this most prominent building in our County.
The lists are up in the bar for all talks and social events so donâ€™t forget to add your names when you are at the Club or alternatively email or call the office or bar. For talk nights, food commences at 6.30pm and the talk starts at 8pm.
Christmas Masquerade Dinner/Dance
Friday, 1st December at 7.30pm
This year the Annual Dinner Dance which is to be held at the Royal Duchy Hotel on Friday 1st December will have a Masquerade Theme.
Some of you will have already seen the menu at the recent Special General Meeting but for those of you who are still in the dark copies are available from the office or on the Clubâ€™s Website.
There is only just over a month to go until this very important date so put your names down quickly to reserve your space. With the evenings now drawing in there is the perfect opportunity to design and decorate your own mask. Let your imagination run away with you â€“ there are lots of ideas online to help you but if you prefer buy one already completed! (Masks are available too from party shops.) There will be a prize for the best male and female mask on the night! Kick off the festive season with an evening that is a little different.
Dress is black tie, cocktail dresses for ladies. The price is Â£36 for a delicious meal and dancing to live music.
