 (News from the Commodore)


 Dear Club Member,

I do hope you and your families are all keeping well and have survived the lockdown in good spirits. I expect, like me, many of you are adapting to new ways of life, such as meeting friends and family via Zoom and choosing your groceries and shopping online. If only there was a robot barber/hairdresser available!

Having lost three months of our sailing programme, it is good to see that the tide is now turning and we are being allowed back on the water as well as to stay on board overnight. Social distancing is due to remain in one form or another of course, but hopefully we can adapt to conform safely with the government’s guidelines.

Accordingly, we are proposing a revised form of racing and fun sailing without social gatherings as explained in detail in Sailing Secretary Tom’s article. To get this underway we need to know how many boats are likely to take part so please return your indemnity forms once received.

I am delighted to see that Sailing in Company is planned to resume from the week of 6th July - so important for training newcomers to racing and maintaining the continuity of what our Club is all about.

Many of you will remember the first Treasure Hunt organised by Derek Cole. It was a great success and the second one will take place on Saturday 25th July – a date not to be missed!

June and July have traditionally seen us cruising the Southern Rivers and East Coast. Sadly, we have missed the slot for the Southern Rivers and after some consultations and enquiries, the East Coast Cruise has been cancelled. We will do our best to fit in a “Taste of Salt”, being a short trip or trips out to sea.

Despite all the challenges I am delighted to be able to welcome two new members to the Club:

• Bill Dalby of Holbeach sails a fin-keel Pegasus 700, Timeless, moored at Horsey.

• Richard Roth of Mulbarton sails a bilge keel Pegasus 800, Shadowfax, moored at Carrow Yacht Club, Norwich.

I look forward to seeing all our members on the water in the very near future. Take care, stay safe and all the very best!
