March 2018 Newsletter

Dear Wyverners,
Welcome to the March Newsletter, which includes information about the 2018 club cruises,
rigging party, working weekend and Instructor course.
With the sub-zero temperatures of the past week the sailing season may seem a long way off
but it will be upon us soon. Only four weeks to Easter and some will be sailing before then. No
doubt many boat owners will be braving the cold weather in various boat sheds preparing their boats for the spring.

one at Easter and four in the summer. The dates of this year’s cruises are as follows:

As per the calendar the rigging Party is being held at The Reedcutter, Cantley on Friday

th March.
There will be a meal of Chilli, Rice, Chips and Salad at £9 per head. Payment can be made on
the night but we do need to know numbers. Please send me an email by Saturday 23

secretary@greenwyvern.org.uk


Working Weekend
It seems not many can get the week off work so the ‘Spring Working Week’ is condensed to
a weekend starting Saturday 10
th March. The working supper is planned for 19:30, Sat 10th at
The Ship, Reedham. No fixed menu is planned so we will be eating off the regular menu.

Keel Boat Instructor Course
The club does need more instructors and to this end are running an RYA
Keelboat Instructor Course from Sunday 25
th to Friday 30th March at
Cantley. The course will be run by Mark Elson from the RYA using Green Wyvern club
member boats. This is excellent news and if successful we should end up with 5 more
instructors. As far as we know this is the first time a club on the broads has run a Keelboat
Instructor course on River Cruisers. The participants will attend a Powerboat Two (PB2)
course at Nancy Oldfield Trust on Saturday 24
th March, then move to Cantley for a precourse assessment on the 25th followed by the instructor training from the 26th to the 30th.


We look forward to seeing you all on the rivers this spring.

GWYC Newsletter April 2017

 

Dear Members,

The new sailing season has arrived, so here is some information about future events.

The Rigging Party

This will be held on Friday 14th April (Good Friday) at the Ship Inn at Reedham. There will be a buffet supper, served at 7.30 which will cost £12.00. Please contact Will Armour by Friday 7th April at the latest, (07941 491 326 or secretary@greenwyvern.org.uk) if you would like to have the buffet supper so that he can give the pub accurate numbers.

Easter Cruise

Please contact Will Armour for start and finish points. Starting on Saturday 15th until Saturday 22nd April, the Easter cruise has the usual suspects. If you wish to join the cruise for a lunchtime or evening beverage, please contact Andy Garnham on 01216 848 814.

Tony Tomkin’s Weekend

This year the Cruise is from Friday 28th April – Monday 1st May. John Duff will be Commodore for the weekend. Please contact Andy Garnham for further details (commodore@greenwyvern.org.uk or 01216 848 814).

The Seventieth (Platinum) Anniversary Cruise

The GWYC is seventy this year and we are planning to commemorate the occasion with a cruise which will start at Somerleyton on the evening of Friday 26th May. We will join the YSC Perryman Race to Beccles on Saturday 27th May. On the Sunday evening 28th May, we will return to The Duke’s Head, at Somerleyton. There will be a buffet supper (£12 per head) to celebrate our seventieth year, so it would be wonderful to see as many Wyverns participating in this event, either as sailors or in a social capacity. If you would like to join us for the buffet, please let me know (secretary@greenwyvern.org.uk or 07742 961 447) by Friday 19th May. Thank you.

The Cruise will continue for up to a week, probably passing through Yarmouth later the in the week, en route to Horning for those members who wish to participate in the Three Rivers Race over the weekend of the 2nd/3rd June. To assist planning, can I ask two things:

  1. Can boat owners let me know if they are planning to join the cruise and if you will have any available berths?
  2. Can non boat owners let me know if they would like a place on the cruise? Any available spaces will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis so get your request in early.

Thank you for your help with this.

Summer Cruises

The Summer Cruises are booking up very nicely. We have over thirty bookings so far, weeks 3 and 4 are especially popular. Places on club cruises are allocated on a ‘first-come-first-served’ basis, so if you would like to sail with the Green Wyvern in 2017, we ask you to make your bookings as soon as you can please to avoid disappointment. Bookings will only be confirmed on the receipt of a booking form and the deposit by the dates shown on the booking forms. Any outstanding fees from 2016 must also be paid. It is also important that the total amount is paid by the final date as chasing up payments is both embarrassing and time consuming for the Treasurer and Sailing Secretary.

Summer Week 1 – Saturday 22nd – Saturday 29th July has space.
Summer Week 2 – Saturday 29th July – Saturday 5th August has space.
Summer Week 3 – Saturday 5th – Saturday 12th August has limited space remaining.

It would be helpful to hear from skippers and mates for these weeks before we accept any more bookings for First/Second Timers, Crew or Senior Crew.

Summer Week 4 – Saturday 12th – Friday 18th August is fully booked.

Booking forms have been sent out on two occasions and are available on the Website, but please contact either Will or myself if you are having any difficulties in locating the form.

Thank you to the Senior Instructors and Boat Owners who have already contacted Will Armour with their availability. If you have not been in touch with Will yet, can you let him know you availability as soon as possible so he can continue with his planning.

Cruise Fees and Food Money for 2017:It was decided that cruise fees would remain at £140 per week and it was agreed that food money should remain at £35. The club still remains a non-profit making organisation. I am sure that you will agree that a week long cruise on The Broads for £175, including food is still very good value for money. I would like to take this opportunity to remind members that the GWYC does have a contingency fund to help with the weekly cruise fee for any members with financial difficulties. If you need help with sailing fees, please contact our Sailing Secretary Will Armour, the treasurer Trevor Potter or myself.

I look forward to seeing everyone on the river later this year.

Best wishes

Rosemary Winterton (Secretary)

GWYC Newsletter February 2017

February 2017 Newsletter

Dear Members

 

Happy New Year! Although the weather is still wintry, many boat owners are busy painting and varnishing their yachts in readiness for the coming season. This year’s working week starts on Saturday 18th March 2017. Anyone who wishes to help out will be made very welcome. There will also be a supper sometime that week so please let me know if you would like to come and if have a preference for a particular evening.

 

David Maxwell Walker:

David passed away peacefully at home on Friday 16th December after a short illness, although he had been living with liver disease for the past six years. Following a private family cremation about a hundred and thirty people came to The Reedcutter Inn at Cantley to see Lesley scatter David’s ashes in the River Yare, whilst we all raised a glass of Micmac (a regular tipple when sailing on Dryad). Eulogies from Lesley and Tony Knights were both moving and encapsulated David so well. Jonathan first met David when he was about thirteen and they became firm friends having many adventures together on The Broads and the Humber and of course you will have many memories of great times spent with David. David was a co-owner of Puck with Cecil Howard and he was part of Cecil’s racing crew together with Martin Clark and Alistair Brace.

David then went on to buy Satyr with Cecil and then David bought his own yacht Dryad which he owned for over thirty years. David enjoyed racing but he never forgot his Green Wyvern roots.

 

Calendar of Events:

The most up-to-date Calendar of Events is attached and I would like to draw your attention to two of these events, which you may like to attend.

 

The Seventieth (Platinum) Anniversary Cruise:

The GWYC is seventy this year and we are planning to commemorate the occasion with a cruise which will start at Somerleyton on the evening of Friday 26th May. We will join the YSC Perryman Race to Beccles on Saturday 27th May and then continue cruising for up to a week, probably passing through Yarmouth later the in the week, en route to Horning for those members who wish to participate in the Three Rivers Race over the weekend of the 2nd/3rd June.

We hope to have a ‘get together’, probably on the Sunday evening, with a buffet supper. Further details are to follow. I hope that we will have as many people as possible come and join us in a sailing or social capacity. To assist planning, can I ask two things:

  1. Can boat owners let me know if they are planning to join the cruise and if you will have any available berths?
  2. Can non boat owning members let me know if they would like a place on the cruise. Any available spaces will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis so get your request in early.

Thank you for your help with this.

 

Norfolk Christmas Party: Saturday 16th December, 7.00 for 7.30p.m. at The Ship at Reedham

This is just to give you advance notice of our Christmas Party. I would like to invite all GW members with their family and friends to join us. Quite a few Wyverns live in Norfolk and are happy to offer accommodation if required. Please make a note of the date.

 

Easter and Summer Cruises

There will be five club weeks, one at Easter and four in the summer. The dates of this year’s cruises are as follows:

 

Easter Cruise:               Saturday 15th – Saturday 22nd April 2017

Summer Week 1:          Saturday 22nd – Saturday 29th July 2017            

Summer Week 2:          Saturday 29th July – Saturday 5th August 2017

Summer Week 3:          Saturday 5th – Saturday 12th August 2017

Summer Week 4:          Saturday 12th – Friday 18th August 2017

 

Booking forms are available here.

Thank you to the Senior Instructors and Boat Owners who have already contacted Will Armour with their availability. If you have not been in touch with Will yet, can you let him know you availability as soon as possible so he can start planning.

We have about twenty bookings so far, weeks 3 and 4 are especially popular. Places on club cruises are allocated on a ‘first-come-first-served’ basis, so if you would like to sail with the Green Wyvern in 2017, we ask you to make your bookings as soon as you can please to avoid disappointment. Bookings will only be confirmed on the receipt of a booking form and the deposit by the dates shown on the booking forms. Any outstanding fees from 2016 must also be paid. It is also important that the total amount is paid by the final date as chasing up payments is both embarrassing and time consuming for the Treasurer and Sailing Secretary.

November Newsletter

A bit late, but here is the latest GWYC newsletter as sent out in November 2016.

Dear Members, 

2017 – Platinum Anniversary: This year, the club has had a very successful year, with plenty of events for everyone. Next year, The Green Wyvern celebrates its Seventieth Anniversary, 1947 – 2017. We would like to make this a year of celebration, so there will be a 70th Commemoration Cruise at the end of May. If you have further ideas as to how we could celebrate seventy years of sailing on The Broads, please let any committee member know and we will see what we can do.

Norfolk Christmas Party: This year we are planning a Christmas lunch at The Ship, Reedham on Sunday 18th December, 1.30 – 1.45. Roast turkey or beef with all the trimmings followed by Christmas pudding or your choice of puddings from the menu and coffee to finish. £15.00 to be collected on the day. Please let me know by Sunday 4th December if you are going to join us. If you have specific dietary requirements, please ring Peter Clutten at The Ship on 01493 700287, but please let me know as well so that we have correct numbers for the pub. Later on in the afternoon, The Ship is hoping to put on carols and mulled wine which we are welcome to join, if we wish.

2016 De-Rigging Party: This was at The Ship at Reedham, on Saturday 29th October and was attended by over forty people, thirty five of whom enjoyed a lovely buffet. We were made very welcome by Peter Clutten and his staff. We also had a raffle to raise funds for Instructor Training. My thanks to all club members and friends, who generously donated prizes and bought numerous tickets, raising £300.

2016 Annual General Meeting: This was held at The Ship at Reedham, on Sunday 30th October. It was attended by twenty six people and there were twenty four apologies. A minutes silence was held for John Tunwell and Martin Anderson who died since the last AGM. Both have been members of the Wyvern for over fifty years. They will be sadly missed and our thoughts are with their families.

The Minutes of the 2015 AGM and the Officers’ Reports for 2016: These were all passed unanimously, with the Commodore giving his thanks to the committee, boat owners and all of those who support the club.

Election of officers: The new committee are as follows:

Commodore  Andy Garnham
Vice Commodore   Mark Thorne
Chief Instructor Jonathan Winterton
Treasurer Trevor Potter
Secretary Rosemary Winterton
Sailing Secretary  Will Armour
Meetings Secretary Ian Bowmaker        
Committee Member Melanie Farrar
Committee Member Denis Kilner
Committee Member Simon Miles
Committee Member Martin Rodford


Examiner of Accounts:
Tim Hurren has stepped down as Examiner of Accounts after many years. Andy Garnham presented Tim with a Rear Commodore’s flag to thank him for his services to the club. Andy Christie was elected as Examiner of Accounts for the forthcoming year.           
Cruise Fees and Food Money for 2017:
It was decided that cruise fees would remain at £140 per week and it was agreed that food money should remain at £35. The club still remains a non-profit making organisation. I am sure that you will agree that a week long cruise on The Broads for £175, including food is still very good value for money. I would like to take this opportunity to remind members that the GWYC does have a contingency fund to help with the weekly cruise fee for any members with financial difficulties. If you need help with sailing fees, please contact our new Sailing Secretary Will Armour, the treasurer Trevor Potter or myself. 

 2017 Calendar is available here.

 Club Championship Trophy: This is presented to the Skipper of the best placed Green Wyvern yacht in The Round the Island Race and the Cecil Howard Memorial Race. This year, the Trophy goes to Arthur Wells on Melody, crewed by Bethany Burwood.

The Tunwell Trophy: Last year, the Commodore introduced a new trophy to be known as The Tunwell Trophy (a Pewter Tankard with a Wyvern Handle) to be awarded for services to the club otherwise unrecognised. The first recipient was John Tunwell. This year, The Tunwell Trophy is awarded to Elsie Vowles, who as a Mate for all four weeks this Summer, has shown exceptional ability. The club received several communications from parents thanking Elsie for her work as an excellent role model to younger sailors.

Senior Instructors and Skippers for Easter and Summer Weeks: Please would Senior Instructors and Skippers let Will Armour know if you are available for Easter and Summer cruises as soon as possible. Thank you.

2017 Calendar: The full calendar is here.  There will be five club weeks, one at Easter and four in the summer. The dates of this year’s cruises are as follows:

Easter Cruise:                          Saturday 15th – Saturday 22nd April 2017
Summer Week 1:                    Saturday 22nd – Saturday 29th July 2017
Summer Week 2:                    Saturday 29th – Saturday 5th Aug 2017
Summer Week 3:                    Saturday   5th – Saturday 12th Aug 2017
Summer Week 4:                    Saturday 12th – Friday 18th Aug 2017

Booking forms are available on our documents page here. We already have several provisional bookings/requests for booking forms. Places on club cruises are allocated on a ‘first-come-first-served’ basis, so if you would like to sail with the Green Wyvern in 2017, we ask you to make your bookings as soon as you can please to avoid disappointment. Bookings will only be confirmed on the receipt of a booking form and the deposit by the dates shown on the booking forms. It is also important that the total amount is paid by the final date as chasing up payments is both embarrassing and time consuming for the Treasurer and Sailing Secretary.

 

Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year. I look forward to seeing everyone on the river next year.

Rosemary Winterton (Secretary)

Annual Inspection

The Green Wyvern Yachting Club is a recognised RYA Training Centre and as such we have an Annual Inspection, which was carried out earlier in the week by Sue Head. It covers all aspects of the work of the club, such as:

  1. Records of the qualifications of Instructors and Senior Instructors and correct Instructors/students ratios;
  2. All aspects of our Safety Procedures, including safety of boats, First Aid equipment and training, Children and Vulnerable Adult Safeguarding training and arrangements, DBS Checks are compliant;
  3. The quality of training and teaching meets requirements; and
  4. The administration of the club is efficient.

 

I am delighted to say that we passed with ‘flying colours’ and that we are ‘Fully Compliant’ with all the requirements of the RYA and that we have no actions that we need to take this year. This is our third ‘Fully Compliant’ inspection.

 

I am so grateful to previous Chief Instructors, Pip Thompson and Mark Wells, who worked so hard on the format of our Operating Procedures. Our Skippers, First Mates and Mates, give so much time, not only for club cruising but also to attend training to become Assistant Instructors, Instructors and Senior Instructors. (The instructor Course, for example takes eight days of training and is quite a commitment if you only get four weeks holiday a year.)

 

My thanks to all boat owners who loan their boats to us and to the Committee who do so much of the unseen work of the GWYC and I am grateful for their time and commitment to the club. In particular, Stephen as our new Sailing Secretary has done a brilliant job organising the cruising, Treasurer, Trevor, deals very efficiently with the financial aspects of the club and Rosemary as secretary has collated all the records and required paperwork for the Inspection. Finally, Andy is a wonderful Commodore and RYA Principal, with his boundless energy, enthusiasm and support he provides the leadership so that we can continue to bring so many young people sailing on The Broads.

 

My thanks and congratulations to all those who are involved with the club and with any aspect of our continuing success.

Best wishes

Jonathan, Chief Instructor

Green Wyvern Calendar and 2016 RYA Training Programme

Dear Members

 

Thank you to those people who have made their food orders for The Spring Working Week Supper on Saturday 12th March at The Ship, Reedham at 7.00p.m. and The Rigging Party at the Reedcutter, Cantley on Friday 25th March (Good Friday).  If you would like to come to either of these events, please complete the attached form and return it to me by Friday 4th March.

Club Cruising

The Summer Cruise Weeks are already filling quite quickly. I am sure that Stephen would appreciate it if Skippers, First Mates and Mates could contact him to let him know your availability/flexibility for the summer cruise.

RYA Training

As you know, sailing with the Green Wyvern, is about enjoying sailing on the Norfolk Broads and the friendships that you make. However we do offer RYA qualifications for those people who wish to take them.

During the Summer Cruise weeks, you are able to do RYA Keelboat Levels 1, 2 and 3 and Advanced Courses such as Seamanship and Day Sailing. Our RYA 2016 Advanced Training Programme is attached.

I also include our up-to-date Calendar. If you would like more information about any of these events, please get in touch.

Best wishes

The Tony Tomkins Cruise Friday 1st – 4th May 2015

Following the very successful Tony Tomkin’s Cruise last year, John Duff and Andy Gordon have agreed to organise it again. Their plan is as follows:

  • Friday evening – assemble at Somerleyton.
  • Saturday – take the uptide to Burgh St Peter for lunch. In the afternoon, take the downtide to Reedham where low water in the bridge is approx 5 30 pm. Go to Reedham Ferry for the night.
  • Sunday – up the Yare to Beauchamp/Rockland for lunch, then downriver to Reedham Street for the night, or possibly Loddon, Chet permitting.
  • Monday – head home to our moorings.

So far, Stella Genesta and Mimosa are cruising. I am sure that they would welcome more company, either by boat, or in a purely social capacity at any of their mentioned venues.

Best wishes and good sailing

Jonathan Winterton

Chris Franks

Dear Members,

I am very sorry to have to tell you that Chris Franks died on Friday 17th October, following a short illness. Chris was introduced to the Green Wyvern by Gordon Winterton as part of a group of pupils from Edlington Comprehensive School near Doncaster, during the early 1970s and he has sailed regularly on The Broads since that time.

Our condolences to his Mother, family and friends.

The Funeral is at Rose Hill Crematorium, Cantley Lane, Doncaster DN4 6NE on 6th November at 2.20p.m.

We will be going to Doncaster on Wednesday.  Please contact me (01493 665332 or 07546 576971) for further information.
