Race Officer Training, Saturday 31st January 2015

RYACLUB RACE OFFICER CERTIFICATE SYLLABUS
This one day course run by RYA National Race Officer Ted Temple will be held at WYC for members on 31st January. The course is free and ideal for individuals with little or no Race Officer experience. Additionally it would be a good refresher for those who find the annual duty a little bit daunting or would like to brush up on the above skills. Aim:
1. To provide a basic syllabus for club race management courses that can be adapted to a club’s needs.
2. To achieve a minimum standard of race management within a club.
3. To teach basic signalling, course laying, the basic routines of starting, managing and finishing races and safety.
Please email Peter Gowing to book a place: sailing.development.officer@wyc.org.uk

Artists Open Houses - Thank You

A big thank you for everyone who displayed their work and helped to organise and run the Artists' Open Houses Exhibition at Whitstable Yacht Club. It was a wonderful to see such a high turn out of artist’s family, friends and club members at the launch party, and during the 3 week-ends that the show was open, nearly 1000 people visited WYC to view the art on display. The feedback from the public was incredible. We hope to hold the event again next year and we look forward to you joining us in 2015.
