AGM and Proposals

As we come to the end of the sailing season, the committee reflect on the things that have gone well and have been well supported and consider those things that have not done so well and how it may be improved. 

At the beginning of the year we invited members to take part in a survey so that we could have a greater understanding of what members want. It has provided the committee with food for thought and will form the basis of the development plan and all will be revealed at the AGM. 

It is usual for the committee to invite any member who has an idea or proposal to submit it for consideration before the AGM.  The committee welcome any ideas or suggestions at any time of the year, but if you have a suggestion/proposal which you would like them to consider before the AGM then please complete the online form below.

As well as getting ideas in as early as possible, we’d like to ensure the ideas have had some exploration before the AGM. To enable this, we would like members to consider the following points. 

Please raise ideas as soon as possible to enable some discussion before the AGM itself. Ideas raised before 5th January 2014 can be discussed at the next committee meeting with a view to helping develop them before the AGM;

Also, it would be good to discuss ideas with other club members to further develop them and get greater input before the AGM. To assist with this we have created an on-line forum where ideas can be shared and discussed. The forum can be found here – to access, you’ll need to register on the website. Please use it!

I joined the club in 2010 having just not long completed a RYA L2 training course elsewhere. Spent a year sailing casually on a Saturday before taking the plunge and starting racing in Autumn 2011 and never looked back. I've been a bit of a boat 'tart' considering I haven't been sailing long having owned a Topaz Magno, a Laser Vago, an RS Vareo and lastly a Laser 1. I've had the Laser for over a year which is a bit of a record for me in terms of boat ownership. I have recently joined the Club committee in order to help with running of the club - 'The more you put in, the more you get out'. Having come to sailing later on in life, I'm very keen to look to ways to support and encourage adults to enjoy the sport and to look at ways to bridge the gap from the end of an RYA L2 course to fully confident and competent sailing.
