Commodores Blog October 2020

Published 16:54 on 26 Oct 2020

Its been an extremely busy month with preparations underway to deliver a successful AGM on 7th November 2020. A completely different approach for Committee that has required a lot of planning and thought so hopefully it will all go well.

One ask from members is to commit to spend a few minutes to vote for the proposed Constitutional amendments. We have circa 220 eligible voters and as at mid-October we have received 40 votes or 19% of the vote.

There will also be a follow up vote post AGM where members will be asked to vote on

  • Approval of 2019 minutes
  • Formal election of the President, Commodore and Flag Officers
  • Approval of the 2020 accounts

Look out for the end October Newsletter which has lots of interesting and important information. A big thankyou to Terry Sheppey our Editor for all the Newsletters this year. Please ensure you read the article on Leslie Downing linked to her involvement with the Woolvestone project.

COVID continues to be a challenge as regulations shift. It is important that the messaging to members is clear and that members understand the club's position to keep members safe.The COVID team continue to do a great job keeping on top of this. Focus from the club has been to reinforce social distancing and remind members that groups should not exceed 6.

If you have the time spare it would be good to see you at the final Dinghy Park Tie Down Work Party on Saturday 31st October. The event runs from 10 am to 12 and includes a free snack for those present. This is a great way to meet other members even though we are coming to the end of the season. Simon Cusworth is leading this event and would appreciate confirmation of attendance to assist with catering and planning of the event simon.cus@btinternet.com orphone 07743 611086.

I hope that members find the time to read the information shared on the 7th November covering the AGM and gain a sense of our achievements throughout the year. Given the circumstances there has been a remarkable amount of effort from members and in particular Committee in keeping the club open and activities alive.

As we approach the close of the season there are now just a few events that remain

  • Dinghy Tie Down Work Party 31st October 2020 from 10am to 12
  • Race Frosties Series 5 final race Sunday 1st November from 2pm
  • Club AGM -7th November by email
  • New Years Day Race and get together at the club Friday 1st January 2021
