Mirror Miracles Nationals next August 16th to 22nd

October 15, 2013 No Comments

Hi there folks!

This is a very prestigious event, the 40th Anniversary of the Mirror Miracles Association.

We expect between 50 to 60 boats to compete. Children as well as adults. We as a club have committed to supply full support throughout the week. We need definite offers of help for the safety boats x 4, beach masters, various social events etc.

My purpose in sending this missive now is therefore to forewarn members of the event and its impact upon the clubs future vis a vis National events – and to ask whether or not you are able to commit to supporting this event and in what capacity.

We need to be able to plan ahead, SO if you haven’t committed to next years holidays yet, how about booking these dates in your diary and sending me confirmation or otherwise of your ability to assist?

Please, please don’t wait till a week before the event to offer your support WE NEED IT NOW !!!

Many thanks,

Mick Ford

First Day of Youth Fun Week is a success

August 13, 2013 No Comments
Mick wishes to thank all those volunteers who made today so successful. We had 21 Young People on the water despite high winds and a short nasty choppy sea which made sailing impossible even though we did attempt to get the Wayfarer and Micks cat on the water. A short broad reach back n forth convinced Mick it was too risky to take the youngsters out sailing, however we had mastless toppers, SUP Boards and Windsurfers on the water for 3hrs and the kids just loved it. They especially loved joining Tim n Dave on the Safety boat screaming up n down the coastline. Well done to everyone.
A short rest tonight and then we have the Kayaks and possibly sailing tomorrow. We expect another 14 young peeps in the morning !!!

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

July 7, 2013 No Comments

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

Mick
