Such a busy month of May just past, with plenty of activity at the club. Friday nights are a real buzz with large numbers of members and guests enjoying the food and wine available, not to forget the Sprig & Fern beers and the weekly draw. Weeknights from 5-7pm are quietly popular.
The Commodores' dinner sold out early and those who had tickets enjoyed an entertaining and informative evening with a superb meal provided by Indojaya and a great after dinner speech from Rebecca Hayter. The Commodore’s cup was awarded to the very deserving Maureen May for her hard work over the years supporting the club and our members.
My focus is now on the succession plans for the club leadership over the next few years. The roles of Vice Commodore and Rear Commodore – Racing are open for interested members to put themselves forward for consideration at the next AGM in July. The Vice Commodore generally takes on responsibility for membership, promoting new membership and ensuring all members are benefitting from their involvement in the club, through good communications, opportunities to get together and to enjoy the facilities at the TBCC. The Rear Commodore – Racing chairs the sailing committee and delivers great competitive sailing for those members of the club who enjoy the Wednesday and weekend events organised by the club.
In addition there are opportunities to be part of the Main committee, the Sailing committee (racing),the Social committee and the Infrastructure (land and buildings) committee. There are lots of moving parts in a club that depends very much on volunteer support, many hands make light work.
See you the club, if you want to explore a role in more detail please get in touch.
