SSC weekly news

Saturday 14th February 2015

Thank you for renewing your membership. Your support is valued and appreciated. Without volunteers there would be no club. The club dinghies and power boats that are kept in good working order despite the rigorous use over a sailing season, the food enjoyed at socials, the friendly face behind the bar, the masterly repairs when things don’t work, the competitive rates negotiated for club house services. These activities and much more depend on volunteers. There is so much more the club could offer but I hesitate to ask more of those already contributing. Volunteering is rewarding and just a little can make a difference. Please ask yourself what can I do for the club and not what can the club do for me (with apologies to J. F .K)

The club has agreed competitive terms with Pembrokeshire Sports Boats to purchase a new power boat. We will take delivery of a Salcombe Flyer 530 soon. The following link to show you the boat in action Click here. A substantial part of the dinghy park has been cleared as part of the working area for contractors to place piles and erect a platform above the sluice (tenders are being considered by the Harbour commissioners now).

THIS WEEKEND Please give your support and book a place at the Big Day Out at Pembrokeshire Yacht club on Sunday 22nd of February. In the south and west we have complained that this event is always held in the north. We have been listened to. There is a really interesting programme planned. If we in the south and west attend in numbers there is a good chance that the experiment will be repeated. If we don’t it will be a lost opportunity.

There is also a not to be missed talk about taking a Wayfarer around Britain the previous evening at Neyland Yacht Club.
Details of both events have been distributed by email.

Your committee is on the lookout for someone over 18 to manage the bar and if suitably qualified offer hot snacks between the hours of 12 - 2 and 7 - 12 during Coppet week (from 23rd to 29th May) and at the National’s (from 2 to 8 August) Saturday to Friday inclusive. Rate of Pay will be by agreement. Would anyone who is interested in applying please contact the Commodore or any committee member.

REMINDER OF NEXT CLUB SOCIAL EVENT 6 March at 7.30 PM. Curry night (vegetarian option) to be followed at 9.00 PM by Mark Attwell - Captain Wisemans Bridge Rowers. Mark will talk to us about the Celtic challenge and more. The club bar is open from 8.30 every Friday evening so please support.

The question has been raised will the clubhouse to be opened for screening of the remaining six nations rugby matches? There are no plans to do so. However, if there is support for the idea please e-mail me with numbers interested and I will try and help.
