October 2018

As this is my last newsletter as Rear Commodore Sailing, my opening must simply be to say a huge 'thank you' to all members of the Sailing Committee over the last three years for all of their efforts. Many committee members’ efforts are not visible to Club members, and volunteers on all committees give their time freely. Without them our Club would be a poorer place.

Much has happened in the last year.   The Vision and two Commandos have been replaced along with the three Fevas, and a new launch/recovery trolley for Escort is due imminently. The Hare & Hounds series is upon us as the season progresses through autumn.

Sailing has been well supported this season, both in terms of social sailing and increased racing participation.

Junior Coordinator Gillian Carter and her team are delighted to welcome Peggy and Jonathan Field, who have exciting plans for Tera training which should lead to ESC becoming a force in this section in the harbour.

In the cruiser section, our racers nobly decided to ‘allow’ Slipper to look after the Yoke for the coming year, trusting that it will be returned to its rightful home in our centenary year.

Dutyman Coordinator sought

Lastly, and by no means least, Martin Stewart has managed the Dutyman system superbly for the last eight years, and our thanks go to him for all his dedicated work. He now feels it is time to hand over to another willing volunteer: if you are interested and would like to know more please contact the office.
