Desperate to get on the water I ignored the poor forecast on Good Friday and popped down for a sail. With very little wind I decided to book out  a club board for some light wind freestyle. Flicking through a dozen pages of bookings made me realise what a success the loan system has been.  There are about a 100 bookings, so with family groups etc that means that 200 or so members have enjoyed their use in a season. Thats great news and satisfying to all those who put in the hard work  to arrange the new system and complete the building alterations.

For anyone looking to take advantage of the booking system and wants a hand to show them the ropes then please request some help via our buddy system.

 An EGM is being held to vote on the updated constitution. The constitution proposal introduces a process for changing trustees so that trustees can be easily retired and appointed. Further details have been posted to every member.

We have secured exclusive use of the Virgin Money Lounge opposite the Norwich Body Shop on Castle Street. The EGM should only take a few minutes to complete and so it’s a good opportunity to have a bit of a social gathering.  Virgin Money have created the Lounge for their customers but also want to encourage local organisations to use it as a special meeting place.  Arrive 7:30 pm for 8:00 start.

 

 This year’s AGM will be at the Feathers pub , Wymondham. 7:30 pm for 8:00pm start.

All members are welcome, so please feel free to come along and have a drink with us. The pub has parking, and the  meeting room is upstairs.

Fantastic fun day, probably the best one yet. A little warmer than forecast at 24 deg, F4 gusts, dry and southerly. Great turn out, I counted 37 at lunch time, so that’s another record breaker for a club FD.

Great to have Quayside Windsurfers support the event, Neil, Stephen, Ray, plus lady photographer (sorry didn’t catch the name) Very big QSW van, small speakers, tall flags and some very sexy windsurfing kit to show.  Members attending: Mike, JT, Graham, Lisa, Simon, Kathy, Dave T, Neil G, Geoffrey, Tone, a rabbit, Wendy, Darren, Keith, Jonny C, Chris, Dave H, Dave B, Steve, Martin, Gareth, Richard, JC, Ros, Marie, plus a load of others but not sure of names. Please add other names to a comment and I’ll add you in.

Nicely powered up for two races before lunch with Martin and Gareth both having a P1, and P2 . With dropping wind Martin swapped from the 8m to his trusty 9m, Gareth changed tactic by trying out the QSW £2k plus board and fully cammed Serverne  sail. Martin bagged the next P1 with Gareth hot on his heels. Dave H took first place in race 4 followed by Martin and Gareth. Overall result was Martin, Gareth and Dave H. Wendy took the ladies 1st place, with Marie 2nd, Lisa 3rd. A scattering of prizes for new members, best rabbit, etc.

Food was up to the usual high standard, thanks Wendy. (We learned that Long Stratton sausages are actually made in Hickling so that’s a nice link). QSW should have some video soon. So great weather, food, lovely people, good competition, my P1,  and all based from our private beach that has to be one of the most beautiful locations on the broads.  Thanks again to everyone for making it so successful.   Fun day?  … absolutely!
