November 2017 Circular

November 17 circular

I hope you have enjoyed your Autumn and it’s good to see so many sailing, especially as the season progressed. Many people enjoyed our successful October Social events including the Albion String Quartet evening and the Halloween Bonfire. We are still racing on Sunday mornings until the 17th December and believe it or not the water is warmer now than it will be when we return to sailing at the beginning of April.  Even if you don’t fancy blowing the cobwebs away, do come down for breakfast or one of Dot’s tasty lunches.

A few points to update you on:

Laying up Supper Sat 25th November, Cumberland Hotel Eastbourne, £30 per head

There are still tickets available for this although the hotel needs to know final numbers this week. If you have not booked your ticket and would like to attend please email Elaine Fowler on

AGM  Sunday 3rd December 2pm

Come and listen to your committee’s report on the year and vote for next year’s committee. We are still looking for people to join the executive and bar committee and bring new ideas. Remember many hands make light work. If you are interested in coming on a committee please email: for more details as to what is involved.

Christmas Lunch Sunday 10th December, clubhouse, £15 per head, Child portion £7.50

Three course Christmas Lunch and all the trimmings but with some additional starters and desserts to get your taste buds tingling. Please sign up in the clubhouse or email: or post on facebook. Bookings required by the 3rd of December.  Note the date change from the 17th December.

Fortnightly Sunday galley January to March 2018

From the 14th January the galley will be open on alternate Sundays for lunch. So please come down to the clubhouse for a change of scenery, do some armchair sailing and look at the lovely view. See the club calendar for dates.

Winter Work Parties – January onwards

Plans for this winter include refurbishing the clubhouse tables, mending some of the rusting containers, touch up painting and general repairs and maintenance.  We plan to do these on Sundays this year. 10am start. Keep an eye on the website or facebook for dates. These will start mid-January.

Best wishes,
