Dear NRSC Members

Here we are just a few days into August and it feels as if the remainder of the sailing season is disappearing with little achieved to date. At last some green shoots and activity have emerged. Sailing in Company is fulfilling its original intention as training for river sailing, practical help and discussions on rigging and technique together with the opportunity to experience overtaking and contraflow within the fleet and amongst the hire boats. Excellent in building confidence for anyone considering racing, which starts with the first regatta on August 8th – 9th.

It is not only the sailing that has a schedule, so does the Club administration. With the AGM on October 31st the papers and call for nominations must be issued by September 31st. When I was invited to fill the vacant position of Vice Commodore to Alison I made it known that I would not be standing for Commodore as seems the practice in two years’ time. It would be my wish that all current Committee members remained having worked so well together, but we are in need of additional members, so do please consider putting yourself or other nominees forward.

This year we had to cancel the East Coast Cruise but there is growing interest in a shorter “Taste of Salt” excursion out to sea sometime fairly soon. Possibly round from Gt Yarmouth to Lowestoft or down to Southwold and back. Please would anyone interested contact me asap.

The Club has been well represented in coastal sailing by Malcolm Flatman in bringing his Hunter 26 down the coast, calling in at Hull, Whitby and Wells. An adventurous journey that Malcolm will write up for the newsletter.

Unfortunately, Roy Simpson has had a cycle accident and is in hospital. Roy with his 800 Tantrum joined the Club last year and attended Tom’s racing talks. We all wish Roy our very best wishes for a speedy recovery.

We had our Sailing in Company event Bob and Brian on Tallulah invited you to join them on the river on Friday 24th July and we all ended up at the club house for tea all social distancing.

Just then we see our intrepid sailors as they return from their North Sea adventure sailing Malcolm’s new boat home with help from Kevin.
