July 30, 2013 No Comments

YIPPEE we finally took possession of the new club keys today. We are meeting for a Snagging meeting 4pm tomorrow. Wednesday, and will be busy setting up the bar , furniture etc on Thursday and Friday.. Its the North West Norfolk Sailing Association weekends racing this weekend, so the place will be buzzing . No space for parking I am afraid unless you are a volunteer helper . However as a thank you for your patience and support over these past few Months, I shall be providing one of my’ special’ Full English Breakfasts on Sunday 11th August!! When I will Christen the lovely new oven so kindly donated by Life Member, Dave Smith. If you would like to join us , please let me know by mid week at the latest so I can arrange sufficient food for all.

Looking forward to seeing you all in our lovely new clubhouse. Yippeee again !!!

White Goods For New Club

July 25, 2013 No Comments
I am delighted to inform you that Dave Smith has donated and paid for, a new Electric cooker and Microwave for the new clubhouse. Carol Clifton has purchased a large Pine Table and we have 2 other pine tables  ready for the clubhouse.  There will be other items we shall identify as needed once we have opened up the garage and placed goods into the clubhouse on 1st and 2nd of August ready for NWNSA weekend and thereafter.
WE DO NEED NOW a small upright freezer if anyone is thinking of parting with one?
Once the builders have departed, we shall identify a host of items needed to complete phase 2 of the build. We are currently awaiting decisions re funding bids, However we believe that once the club is functioning once again, some of our members may be able to volunteer to either supply goods, or offer their expertise in building infrastructure work.
We intend to have a roll of honour dedicated to those who can supply goods and services as a lasting memorial to the help our members will/have given to the rebuild.
Don’t hesitate to contact me with any ideas and I look forward to seeing as many as possible of you in our new clubhouse from 1st August.

CBBC Wild visit

July 14, 2013 No Comments

My thanks to all who came and supported us on the water today, especially all our younger members who really made it a special  day. We had lots camera shots which look good on the replay. Shame the wind died for the cats, but was perfect weather for kayaks etc, and the club was even mentioned in the Credits at the end of the show.



CBBC next saturday

Hi all,

CBBC TV is broadcasting live from the Oasis Centre from 9am to 10am on Saturday 13th July, the ‘WILD’ show

The club has been asked if we can have a backdrop of various craft on the water and children seen enjoying themselves. Les Collinson hopes to have some Kayaks on the water, I shall be out with my Catamaran and a young crew as will Mark Lees. Tim or a colleague will have the safety boat there and will possibly take a camera man out to get close ups of the activity which might also include a windsurfer/kiter.

Snettisham Sailing Club I believe will also have a Rib on the water.

If you wish to be on the water with your Son/Daughter/young relative, for a bit of TV fame, you will need to sign a form agreeing to filming of the offspring. I will have the forms.

Please let me know if you can/will join us by next Wednesday at the latest. Its all good publicity for the club
