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 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
SIMON RICHES is taking part in the Norfolk Superhero Challenge on the 29th June 2013 to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.

STARTING Wednesday 22nd May at 5 pm we will have Taster sessions at the club.
Much as in the past, we will arrange Dinghy Sailing, Windsurfing,Kiting Supp Boards etc for friends and family.We can jointly arrange to finish the evenings with a Barbie too!!!
We could possibly gain some funding support from the RYA if we can arrange 10 sessions ( could include Saturday AMs) and include adult learners too. Robbie Bell of the RYA might be able to arrange an assistant instructors course for 6 members . This would be over 2 days during June if there is sufficient interest.
Let me know if you wish to come down on the Wednesdays and if you would like to be one of the 6 Assistant Instructor trainees.
