Thanks to all who took the time to participate in the business planning workshop on Wednesday and provided useful feedback as to stengths, weaknesses, opportinities and threats to our club.

Reviewing the survey results provided some clear themes;

What we do well...

Great stretch of clean water with good wind

Good racing programme

Great food and service provided by Tillys

Wednesday evening improver sessions

K2O club for the children / youth members

Accessible with good opening times

Room for improvement...

Update facilities and ground maintenance

Race management and rules observance

Improve sailing numbers on a Sunday

More Socials

On-line payment options

More inclusive (families, women, cruising, improvers)


The attendees provided many further insights that I shall now be clustering into themes and writing up in the plan.

When the plan is finalised we shall be picking a number of projects to work on as well as being clear as to the areas that will be 'on-hold' until our first level priorities have been completed.

I will continue to post updates as we work through this so members are kept up to date.
