If you haven’t already completed the questionnaire, please do so as we need your input.
This is to help the committee to better understand what changes to the club you would like to see and your sailing aspirations over the next 12 months. It also asks whether you are able to help with the running of the club and your views on the annual membership subscription.
The questionnaire is related to the club development plan that I mentioned in a previous log and I would very much appreciate if you could find the time to complete and return it as soon as possible.
If you have Microsoft Office on your pc you can download the word .doc version, save it and edit it and email it as an attachment – email address in download.
Otherwise you can download the questionnaire in pdf format and print it off amd complete then put in the box in the clubhouse or post it.

Very occasionally we have trouble with vandals interfering with the boats that are left in the dinghy park. The club has already installed lighting and CCTV is now installed as deterrents. We are also grateful to the water bailiffs for keeping a watch out for unusual or suspicious behaviour in the area.
However it is everyone’s responsibility to ensure that their boat is locked and tied securely to a barrier or other substantial weight. A handful of concrete with chain set in put in a hole in the ground makes a good second securing point. Some members have ingenious methods which are worth noting. Both boat and trolley should be secured as boats have been lifted from locked trolleys.
Road trailers must NEVER be left in the dinghy park.
Thank you in anticipation for your co operation and hopefully we will be left alone by unwanted visitors for the rest of the season.
