A few members are going to do this who wants to join us and make a team day of it? Link to entry is here: https://www.iossc.org.uk/islandrace/ If you are planning on going, let Laurie or Karl know on the WhatsApp chat.
The AGM is not until November 11th, so why bring it up now you ask?
Well, there are a couple of things to think about now-
Who is going to run the club next year? And how can you help.
We will be sending out Nominations lists for slots that need to be filled if we are to keep this show on the road and we would ask that you give consideration to helping out with the tasks at hand. Even if you can only give a few hours here and there or perhaps there is scope for a job share to ease the time burden. Just let me know if you can help, please. We are especially keen to get newer members involved so that future programmes and developments can meet changing needs. You do not have to be an Olympic Sailor or Kayaker to be able to contribute! Secondly, the AGM is an opportunity for members to raise issues for consideration by the whole membership but you have to let the Directors know by 30th September for it to be included on the Agenda. Finally, we are starting to put the programme for 2024 together so if you have any comments, suggestions or preferences on what you would like to see in it please let Russell or myself know asap so that it can go in the mix. This is one of the tasks of the Sailing Committee in case you want to join up for next year!
Power Boat Training
If you would like to do the next course, please sign up on the notice board in the club house and he will let you know when he runs the next one. Link to the course information is here: https://www.rya.org.uk/training/courses/level-2-powerboat-handling-pl2c
