A big thank you to David Stewart and all the volunteers who assisted whilst Craig was off – Bob Godzicz, Peter Morgan, Gary Tranter, Mike Hodges, Mike Stratton, Hilton Willott, Nicole Ames, Thomas Bruch, Sandy Tynbdale-Biscoe, David Hamilton, Martin Leech and of course Kim Tredidgo, our regular bosun, for his flexibility and willingness to adjust his schedule and work extra days. Without this the Club would not have been able to provide a full launch service.
Welcome back Craig!
The Classics event at the weekend was a great success, the weather was beautiful and thanks must go to Brian and Tasha and all the bar and catering team for the hard work they put in, particularly on Saturday evening for the Classics BBQ.
The Club has been buzzing this week when we welcomed the Yachting World Day Boat National Championships. Approximately 50 sailors and 21 boats enjoyed the fine weather and some great sailing and they have all said how friendly the Club was. Again, thanks must go to all the volunteers who helped to make this such a successful event, in particular, to Neil and Julie Hopkins and to Neil Andrew and to our bar and catering team for looking after everyone.
Thanks to Liz Hammick for the photos.
