Dates For Your Diary
Please find below some dates for your diary.
WINTER WORKING PARTIES - EVERY SATURDAY - From 10.30am until you get a better offer or die from exhaustion!
Our "young" enthusiastic club Bosun, Richard Smith, really needs some help undertaking the usual winter maintenance jobs around the club. So, if you could spare a couple of hours on a Saturday to assist him and the club in general, it would be greatly appreciated. Any amount of time you are able to donate will make a great deal of difference.
SATURDAY 14th APRIL - SOCIAL SAILING BEGINS - From 1.00pm - Please note the earlier start time this year
The new social sailing season for 2018 will begin on this day. A full sailing calendar is currently being produced and will be available to all shortly. As always, members are required as a condition of membership to participate in the duty roster because your sailing really isn't possible without all members kindly chipping in to contribute and help out. Please refer to the club website if this has come as a bit of a shock. Please also note the new earlier start time of 1.00pm for social sailing this season.
SATURDAY 30th JUNE - TOPPER ASSOCIATION COACHING DAY - 9.00am
We are fortunate that the Topper Association will again be holding a Topper Coaching Day this year at Ely, the day before our Topper Open Event. The coaching day is open to all members, particularly those who regularly sail a Topper, to receive some top class coaching from a respected squad coach. Cost for members of Ely is discounted to £20 only, but you must pay and register your intention to attend by clicking on the link below and entering your details. https://gbrtopper.ourclubadmin.com/event-register.php
NEW MEMBERSHIP CATEGORY INTRODUCED FOR 2018 - SAILING ADULT MEMBERSHIP WITH ADDED "CREW" OPTION
Sailing Adult with an added flexible Crew option permits the membership holder (helm) to sail with different people (family members/friends) an unlimited number of times as their crew, with your crew mate not requiring their own membership because they are covered by your own subscription. They are not permitted to helm the vessel or hire any club boat for their own purpose. It is hoped this will give members even more opportunities to get on the water this year.
That's all for now, but please watch this space or the website for more......
