A Merry Christmas to you all and here is looking forward to a better 2021 although sadly the programme for 2021 has not started as we would have wanted. Unfortunately, due to the current COVID regulations we have had to cancel the Antic Artic race and social on January 1st, 2021.Hopefully, this is a blip and assuming the various vaccines prove effective then 2021 should see us back on course.
The new Committee met in December over Zoom and yet again we have an enthusiastic team keen to continue the good work of previous committee members. We are still without a Membership Secretary (all enquiries welcome) but did formerly vote in Jessica Palin as our Honorary Secretary whilst Helen Allen kindly stepped forward to take on the role of Safeguarding (in addition to her role as Kayak rep)
The new Committee have several ideas which should deliver an exciting programme for 2021 but for now we are taking this step by step with regard the content of the programme. Please refer to the website calendar where some details have been populated. One big aspiration would be to satisfy the demand we have for both dinghy and power boat training. We have the resources to organise and deliver these programmes so just need to ensure we are in the clear to execute.
You would have received your renewal notices for 2021 which is due for payment by end January 2021. Many thanks to all those members that have already paid their subscription particularly those that have paid by Stripe, at a glance we have probably received between 30 to 40% of annual subscriptions for 2021 which is great for our finances and also a good indication of 2021 membership numbers.
During January 2021 we expect the long-awaited change to the entrance of the ladies changing room to be completed. You may also notice around the dinghy park improvements to the marking of boat positions thanks to Tony Ellison our Dinghy Park Supervisor. Tony is slowly working his way around the park embedding a new numbering system.
For now, enjoy the rest of 2020 and have a pleasant new year celebration. By the way if you need some ideas for New Year's resolutions then don't forget more time on the water and to attend a club social.
What can we look forward to in January 2021?
