WELCOME

Hi folks and welcome to our new website. This has come about by the good offices of member Marcus and his Son Jack together with Liz Pendleton and John Matthews. I shall try to do an update Monthly now and this should mean I no longer need send out missives via email to 150 plus members forgetting to delete all those email addresses . I apologise if you have been upset by my inability to comprehend the technicalities of the system and did not delete your email address before clicking SEND. !!!

 

The AGM is on 21st April 3pm at the Hunstanton Fire Station. You will have all received the Agenda and papers so do come along and help us decide if there should be a CLUB  NAME CHANGE or not. Dont forget you can arrange for a proxy vote if you are unable to attend.

 

The New Committee boat Sarah D (see photo opposite) is almost ready for launch. Thanks to all who came down last Sunday and helped get the Trailer base ready and in situ. Will Rockliffe has done a brilliant job of building the trailer and all it needs now are for the wheels to be fitted and a repaint. So do contact Tim Starling and find out how/when you can help.

 

REBUILD
You will see we have a separate section for the rebuild so  hope to  keep you all updated on progress.

The portable cabin is in situ and the keys are in the coded locked box on the front by the door. Its the same code you used for your keys safekeeping in the past. If anyone is not aware of that code please phone or email Tim Starling or me, as we don’t want it broadcast to the world for security reasons.

 

EVENTS

This coming Sunday 14th April, we are hosting a contingent of Sea Cadets from Kings Lynn. 12 -14 of them will be at the club by 10am so we need all the help we can muster to ensure they have a great time, including a possible BBQ if the weather is kind to us. We want to assist as many as possible to get on the water during the day with their qualified sailing instructor Bob Panrucker and colleagues . So come along and show them what a warm family friendly club we are.
