Fun evening 17th April 2014
Thursday the 17th April our section is having a fun evening for our members, hopefully we will get a few more of them out sailing.
We plan to get to the Club for 3pm and will provide safety cover till about 7.30 so if any Club members want to turn up for a sail we will provide the safety cover.
We will have a couple of simple races mainly for our members but if others want to take part that is fine, it is a bit of fun so normal racing rules will be very flexible and of course only our members can win.

Annual Races - Sunday 20th April
This coming Sunday, April 20th will be the annual races for the John Jarrett Trophy and the Commodore’s Cup. This year the Commodore’s Cup will be a charity race and the beneficiary will be the Eric Twiname Trust. This charity was set up in to encourage young people into racing sailing. Eric Twiname was an outstanding young sailor based at Bassenthwaite Sailing Club in the northern English Lakes. He had already achieved national championships at a young age. He died of lymphoma in his thirties. By then he had also written his book of the Racing Rules and another “Start to win” both of which are valid today.
Contributions are invited on Sunday. Please come and enjoy the racing.
History of the Club - Book
A history of the Club has just been published. It has been written by three very longstanding members of the Club and makes fascinating reading. It is well worth having a copy. If you would like one contact your favourite member of the General Committee and they will be happy to supply you with one. The cost is £10.00 plus £2 p&p. Alternatively you can buy one at the bar and save the £2 p&p.
Please see Dutyman for upcoming duties in April and May pending the full year allocation when renewals are in.
Note: We no longer record members excluded dates on Dutyman as Dutyman provides a very good system for swapping duties with other members.

Paul Clements 1955-2014
It is with great sadness that I have to bring to you the news that Paul Clements died yesterday.
Our thoughts are very much with Liza and Paul's two sons Mark and Ian at this dreadful time.
