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

Damage at the Club House

May 31, 2013 No Comments
Will all members please note the club property has been targeted for a second time by local yobs. The pink Topper and trailer were thrown over the sea wall this time  and thankfully Rob the foreman on the new club site had the sense to get it up off the beach as the tide came in. Dave Gumb Chris Howe and I have secured it to a ground ring with a safety chain. I have the key at moment till I can give it to Tim.
The first damaged Topper has now disappeared altogether also. The police are aware and will step up patrols.
The yobs also smashed a window in the new build, broke open the front door and let off the fire extinguishers.
I am currently making a set of stocks to erect on the Spinney !!!!!

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.
