What, I hear you cry, no more blogs. Don’t worry. I have been asked to stand as commodore next year and will continue the blogs if elected. Will have to have a new title though – “Commodores Comments” or can anyone think of anything better?
Lots to cover. First the Annual Dinner next Saturday 22nd, we have a live band, very short speeches and what promises to be a fun evening. We are nearly full but if you manage to get a pass out (you know who you are!) then its not too late, pls contact Brenda – details here.
An important part of the evening will be the award of the Broken Rudder Trophy. I have decided to release the video of our shortlisted candidates early to give you a chance to view and vote. Please email your votes to firstname.lastname@example.org or text me on 07850002364. Click on this link to see the video shortlist.
Next, the Jybaz Christmas event will be Saturday 6th December. Again, a great event to celebrate all the achievements of our youth section and to thank all those who have supported them. Click here for details.
As you may already know earlier this year Rudyard Lake Sailing Club achieved OnBoard status and several members of the club have been actively working with schools in the area. Recently 2 of the children from Ryleys Prep School came 1st in the U11 IAPS Sailing Regatta in Oxford.
Andy Couch has been a member of our club over many years and is still a member of our club, though often away competing. Andy has become the most successful Phantom sailor in the boat’s 43 year history after securing his fifth national title in the class in a 49-strong fleet at Stone SC. Together with Charlie Cumbley, Andy is also the first ever Ovington VX One national champion. Please show your support by voting for Andy and OnBoard and get your friend to vote as well. Click here to vote.
Nominations close on the 30th November so please vote before then; you can see more here
Lastly something very different. Many of you know I work for the Open University. You will have no doubt seen lots in the news about the landing on the Comet. The OU has the UK leading Planetary Science Department with many of the people on Telly working for us. For an inside view on what happened this week, here is my work blog!!!
