A club owned outboard is suspected to have been stolen from the club in the past week. Please report any suspicious activity to a committee member or if it is something happening live call 999. If you have expensive equipment at the club please ensure it is securely locked up to prevent being a victim of crime yourselves. We hope this is a one off and if you have items missing yourselves please email firstname.lastname@example.org to report.
The club thanks Sean Callen for volunteering himself for the role of Pound Master in a co-opted capacity. Sean will be monitoring the pound and updating the Mooring and Pound Committee around safety issues, planning for 2020 and possible projects to improve the site for members. If you have any concerns or requests for improvements in this area of the club please let Sean know. At this time Sean is already looking into the budget options for water hoses on reels in the rows to make it easier for members to get water to their boats when ashore plus marking the club car park.
Rallies, Saunters and Sail in Company 2020
Due to the success of members running events on the water this year the club would like to ask for volunteers to OOD Rallies, Saunters or Sail in Companies with destinations proposed by that OOD.

Membership for 2020. (Direct Debit Scheme being discussed)
Update for plans next year around easier ways for the club members to pay for their membership fees. There are ideas are being looked at by the General Committee around Membership fees being obtained by monthly direct debit over 10 months for 2020. This scheme has some costs involved and therefore these would be added onto the membership cost per month for those paying by Direct Debit. Please can you complete the form below so that we can get an idea as a club of how many members would like the option to pay in this way. (Those that wish to pay yearly the option would still be available as normal) Direct Debit payments would run from January to October each year.

Classic , Swedish built sailing cruiser with GRP hull , wooden uppers and teak deck
“Baltic Lady”, a Vindo 40, is reluctantly for sail owing to lack of time to sail her. She is a really nice looking boat with a long keel making her exceptionally stable and sea kindly. Her hull is GRP so whilst she has the appearance of a classic there aren’t the risks and maintenance associated with a wooden hull. Her decks are teak and she has wooden uppers and cockpit and has a traditional feel. Being of Swedish origins she is very well built and very sound.
She is 5 berth ( 6 if hammock berth included ) with two cabins , a galley area , chart table and separate heads with a pull out basin . She is powered by a Volvo 2030 engine and has the usual array of instrumentation including radar, and a chart plotter etc.
She is in good order and ready to sail.
I have her on the market with Network Yacht Brokers at Lymington (see link for details : https://www.networkyachtbrokers.com/boats_for_sale/Vindo_40-04441.html/ ) at £24,450 but am open to reasonable offers below this and will include a tender and trailer within the price.
She is on the left side of the club (looking out to sea) and is the last boat on the left next to the water. If you are interested give me a call and I would be delighted to show you around.
