Weekly sailing report w/e 17 October 2014
Junior Sailing The end of season get together proved to be a very enjoyable event with most junior sailors attending. The buffet was provided by the parents with Karin coordinating as usual and was appreciated by all present. One very successful idea was a treasure hunt type quiz with answers to be found somewhere around the Clubhouse. There were 10 teams of 3 and everyone from aged 5 to 17 enthusiastically took part. Later Blake read out the names of the youngsters who had gained RYA certificates during the season. He thanked all the Wednesday helpers, instructors, parents and Club members who regularly do such jobs as registration, launching the ribs, driving the tractor, getting dinghies ready, checking them out, help with launching often a wet and cold task, and afterwards putting everything away, not to mention Club members who keep everything in repair in between sessions. Overall a large enterprise dependent on numerous volunteers. The rewards of all this effort can be seen by the regular support of the youngsters and their parents and the party like atmosphere every Wednesday night. The certificate achievers were:-
