Autumn 2019 Newsletter

Spring Newsletter 2019 summary

Dear Fellow Members

Welcome to the first newsletter of the 2019 season.  The sun has been shining of late and the temperature has gone up so perhaps we can hope for good weather for land and water activities over the coming months.   

This newsletter is intended to give you a taster of some of our activities over the winter months, if you missed them and a pointer towards events in the coming months.   Remember to use this site for up to date information and also the club WhatsApp group, of which more later.


  • line dancing sessions, 

  • a supper for the cruiser members

  • two themed evenings – Italian and Chinese with excellent food and local entertainment

As always in March, there was the AGM.  This year saw the retirement of Jim Page, Commodore of four years’ standing.  Jim has done a magnificent job of leading the club and will be a difficult act to follow. We said goodbye and thanks to committee members Jill Lasenby and Sally Ross, who have come to the end of their terms. For further details, of the new committee and the  and details of forthcoming events, please see the full newsletter.


Best wishes for the coming season.
