Hon Secretary needed!
Good to see so many of you back on the water over the last couple of weeks.
Just to let everyone know, the AGM will be going ahead on the 19th Oct at 19.45 but this year due to the current restrictions unfortunately it it will have to be held on Zoom. There will be more to follow about this including details for those people that may not have Zoom access.
As you know the club relies on the volunteers in the General Committee (GC) and Sailing Sub Committee (SSC) to keep the club functioning, and we are very grateful to the many people that fulfil these roles. Four of these roles are legal requirements for the club to operate and these include the Honorary Secretary.
Having done a fabulous job as Hon Sec for the last 4 years Anne Clubb has decided to step down from this role and we require another individual to take this role in order for the club to function. The current committee will do all they can to minimise the workload for the individual and Anne has said she is happy to help a new person settle into the role and provide them support. So, any volunteers please, please get in touch with anyone on the committee and we can have a chat about what is required.
Hope to see you all soon
