Masts down - please

There are still a number of masts standing on the beach. Members are reminded that the boat parking policy states that masts must be lowered during the non-sailing months. If you wish to sail through the winter please let the office know and you will be given dispensation to leave your mast up. If your mast is still up please lower it immediately.

For all our good little sailors…

...the Club has organised a christmas treat for you all. We will be celebrating Christmas with fun, carols with the odd party game here and there. If you are interested, please write your names on the beautiful poster (designed by Holly Gostelow) on the notice board by the tea bar. The more the merrier!

New Years Eve

Start as you mean to go on in 2010. The Pepper Army are back to play again by popular request (they received rave reviews last year). Tickets are now available behind the bar at £15 and canapes will be served. Champagne will be available to purchase behind the bar (I guarantee we won't be running out!). We have had a lot of interest in "the party of the decade" so make sure you buy your tickets asap. Donna Hender, Social Secretary

What are your thoughts on further training?

We are running this survey to gauge members' thoughts on further training. We would also like to know if the more accomplished sailors would be interested in becoming Club Racing Coaches/mentors for new members/post Level 2 sailors. If you wish to take part, please click on the link below. http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/S6TZ6H9 Many thanks. WYC

Volunteers urgently required for Tea Bar

As you know a small group of members have been on hand to serve you behind the Tea Bar for several weeks now. We are appealling for helpers to give some of our volunteers a break - any help would be much appreciated. Dates in particular are: 22 November and 29th November. Please contact the office (before 2pm) or leave a message behind the bar. Thanks very much. WYC

You should now have received your subscription renewal forms - these were sent out several weeks ago. If you haven't received anything in the post by now I suggest you download the subs form from the website. Just follow this link: http://www.wyc.org.uk/downloads/SubscriptionForm20092010.pdf.

Anyone who hasn't received their subs form, please contact the office and we will send this through to you electronically. WYC
