Thank you to the many people who responded – always good to have ‘new eyes’ for such important proposals. All responses were very positive and helpful. Two suggestions from the feedback so far should be considered by the AGM:

  • Mike Ashton noticed that we had not referenced our rules to our Finance Policy. This has been added to Section 5 (printed in Red) and renumbered accordingly.
  • On the subject of Subscriptions, if we decide to introduce them, Peter Lowes thought that only members who have paid their subscription should be eligible to vote at the AGM.

The Time Scale to the AGM is as follows:

13th September (7 weeks to the AGM)

a.    Notification of AGM.
b.    Requests for nominations for all positions in Number 2 above.
c.    Requests for any amendments to Club Rules, Ranks, Fees and Subscriptions.

27th September (5 weeks to the AGM)

a.    Closing date for committee nominations.
b.    Closing date for any amendments to Club Rules, Ranks, Fees and Subscriptions.

Tony Tomkins Cruise Friday 2nd May – Monday 5th May 2014

The Tony Tomkins Cruise Friday 2nd May – Monday 5th May 2014

Dear Members,

We will not be sailing on The Tony Tomkins Cruise this year, however John Duff and Andy Gordon, who are both sailing have very kindly agreed to plan the cruise. Their plan is attached below.

At the moment, for a number of reasons, only Stella Genesta and Mimosa are definitely 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.

If you would like to join them, by boat, please contact Andy Gordon so that he can book enough moorings.

We had an excellent Easter Cruise with very good sailing and weather, ending in the best attended Rigging Party for several years. The Boat Owners, Family and Friends Cruise, over the Easter weekend had a fleet of six boats and although the weather was not quite as kind as the previous week (typical Bank holiday!) there was more good sailing and excellent company.

Best wishes and good sailing

Jonathan Winterton
