Our 50 th Anniversary year is coming to an end with the club reporting significant growth in memberships and members in 2019. The challenge for 2020 will be to retain as many members as we can and to seek out new members to replace those that not wishing to renewal.
Application for membership is now open with the facility to now safely pay online via 'Stripe'
Post AGM the club have a full management committee with a number of new faces taking up roles. We have an equally strong and ambitious committee for 2020 so will continue to invest in the club for the benefit of members.
Post AGM there was only one role unfulfilled that of Fund raising. This can be a crucial role as it allows the club to accelerate its development as a result of external donations. Regardless of whether we are able to fill this role if you feel that you can spare some time completing an application for funds then please do get in touch. The more members that are able to take one small project on the greater the probability of success. Please refer to firstname.lastname@example.org if you can spare some time . Meanwhile two existing Committee members have stepped forward to each progress an application.
Look out in the Calendar and on the website for the various work parties that are scheduled for 2020. We have increased the number of dinghy park clean up events under the leadership of Simon Cusworth whilst you can apply via bookings on the website to join in a slipway washdown.
Keeps your eyes open for training, social and sailing events that are populated in the calendar.
For 2020 the committee are aligned on the following two themes
- 1.Getting members on the water Driven by our Training / Sailing programme
- 2.Getting the system & process working effectively / part of workload reduction and reason we have added the Coordinator role
What can we look forward to in January 2020
