The laying up supper on Saturday the 22nd was a great success. Our thanks to our members Fergus O Sullivan, Rob Turvil and Ben Constable, as well as our guest vocalist John, for providing the music before and after our meal. It was enjoyed by all, and even the audience managed to sing along! Lastly, our thanks to Andy Mumford for providing such excellent pies – brilliant!!

I believe that Ardleigh is a not a Racing Club, but a Sailing Club., and all its members are encouraged to become involved with activities that promote, maintain, and make more enjoyable the Ardleigh experience.
Although committee members continue to work hard for the club, this year I wanted to give recognition to ordinary members who have gone the extra mile on several occasions. So, the following were thanked with a small token: Richard Askew, Mike Harden, Nick Staunton, Fergus, Paul Barnes – for carrying such tasks as grass cutting, building the pontoon and organising the Goose Scaring, & extra duties etc..
However, Mick Balaam was award the Member of the year Trophy for 2016 for being involved in virtually all the activities mentioned, but especially for clearing and cleaning out the race hut extension and then rebuilding it.
Andy Mumford was awarded the 2016 Ardleigh SC Bake -off winner for providing us with such a fantastic meal.
