January 2018


I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas.

On 17 December we held our Carols & Mince Pies with Santa event, with some party games too. Thank you to Ian and Carol Frogley for providing the music and words. Thank you to Santa for joining us and handing out some candy canes. We have some musical statues experts at the Club which made it very difficult to pick a winner, but we got there in the end ☺

On 23 December we had our Junior Christmas Ball. There was (a little) dancing, delicious food, some magic, silly photos, balloons and lots and lots of mini balls flying around. I’m glad I didn’t have to do the hoovering afterwards! A big thank you to Jon Greatorex, Dion Hoare and Sue Slight for helping. Thank you also to Ollie and his team for the food, and a massive thanks to the cleaners!!

On 28 December we had the Movie  & Popcorn Evening. I wasn’t able to go along to that event but I hope all who did enjoyed it. We will plan some more movie nights in 2018.

The biggest thank you goes to everyone who came along and supported the Junior Christmas events. The 2018 Junior Ball will be on 15 December, so put it in your diaries now!

Other key dates for your new 2018 diaries are:

Saturday 3 March 5pm:
Juniors' Start of Season Meeting
24 & 25 March:

30 March – 2 April:

22 – 26 October:

We will have the usual Martlets courses and other events in between these too.

I’ve already been receiving offers of help for COW week; I manage the safety boat and onshore activities rather than through Dutyman. So if you are available to help, please let me know. The sooner I have it organised the easier it is in the run up to the event.

We are going to try and organise a few more social events before the season starts so keep an eye out for emails with details.

If there is something you would like to see in 2018, sailing or social, please contact me so we can see what we can do.

Lastly, I wish you all a very happy 2018 full of fun and water activites ☺
