The original event in March had to be cancelled due to snow and ice, but finally on 21st April 21 club members and guests enjoyed an excellent Thai take away from Simply Thai of Manningtree as well as live music from three of our members, Fergus O Sullivan, Rob Turvil and Ben Constable. Even the weather was pleasant.
I would like to thank all those who turned up and helped lay the tables, serve and wash up. Your efforts made this a memorable evening for everyone, including the organisers!
We hope to have other similar events later in the year, whilst the weather is still good. If you have any suggestions, please pass them on to me via the firstname.lastname@example.org or using our website.
The 9th Colchester Scout Group, which has a fleet of 14 boats at Ardleigh reservoir, is urgently looking for a sailing instructor with an RYA permit who would be able to oversee sailing training. The group is willing to support the right candidate in obtaining the necessary qualifications. Volunteers would need to be vetted by DBS and do some online safeguarding training.
Please contact Yvette Wetton if you feel you could help in this matter or know of someone who might be able to help. Thanks!
Being the first Sunday of May, its also Family and Social Sailing which will also run between 10:30 and 4:00.
This is a family-friendly event that take place on the first Sunday from May to October. See the Club Calendar for full details.
The atmosphere is relaxed enough for you to do what you want providing you stay in sight of the rescue boat if you want to be eligible for rescue. These sessions are great for informal coaching be it parents teaching their kids or adults crewing and helming on each others' boats. Boat swaps have also been known!
The Safety boat is out, various club boats are available for use and hopefully a few of the 'older hands' are available to help you with any nautical conundrums!!
The safety boat helm normally organises an easy course for beginners to negotiate.
Many families arrive in time to picnic and chat as well as getting on the water for some fun.
