Here is a little update from your incoming Commodore which I am writing whilst in Greece carrying out an inspection for the RYA.
Thanks to all who came to AGM- the committee was grateful for members input and has taken on board concerns about poor communication - we will keep you updated from time to time.
Great to see so many of you the other Tuesday evening to meet your new commodore and committee. Let's try and build up the social side of the club.
We have gained several new members recently which is good news- we all have a part to play in welcoming new members into the club and offering help and support to get them on the water. Wednesday evening training is going really well and hopefully will give novice sailors confidence- thanks Steve Ward and his helpers.
I hope members notice how tidy the boat park is looking after Saturday's working party- thank you Simon and everyone who came along to help.
Finally please remember that this is YOUR club- if you have concerns, queries etc please do talk directly with one of the committee after we have been sailing. It is much better to be proactive rather than grumble away behind the scenes. Bartley is a great club and with Rockley coming 'on board' the future is bright.
Hope to see as many of you as possible on the water this weekend. I will be out in my new (but very old) laser!
