There was a great overview of the clubs activities given and an overview of our accounts for the year 2015. There was a lively discussion from the building group and a few ideas on what we can do to help us with our developement fund. We need to set up a fundraising developement committee and will be looking for a few volunteers to help with this over the next few weeks. If anyone wants to be part of this or has any ideas as to how we raise some money over then we would be delighted to hear them. Please contact one of the committee members and we will have a meeting very soon to start the ball rolling with this.
2016 AGM Meeting. This will be a very important meeting as we will be discussing new developements regarding the club and the new clubhouse. Please feel free to share so that we can have all of our members past and present attend.
On behalf of the sailing Club we want to wish all of our Club Members, Sailing Camp Trainees,Junior members and Facebook friends a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New year. I hope Santa is as good to you as the sports capital grant fairy was to us and that you all get what you are wishing for. Next year will see lots of new changes for the better for our club and thanks to our building committee ( Tom Mc Hugh, Tommy Scott, Mick Laffan and Mike O Sullivan) we will have our new clubhouse up and running hopefully for the September Regatta. Its going to be very exciting times ahead.
Santa arrived last week to a flooded compound but thanks to Mike Mc Carthy we adjourned to Donnelons where the stove and fire was lighting and all the children were eagerly awaiting Santa Claus who surprised them by turning up in the side car of a Harley Davison Motorbike with the help of one of our club members Des Mc Mahon.
The 28th of January is the date for our AGM in Donnelans Kilkishen and we would like to see as many members, potential members and old members to turn up and discuss our next steps in the building of the clubhouse. We will have an update on costs and anyone with any good fundraising ideas then dont be shy turn up and help us.
Have a nice break and looking forward to seeing you all in the new year
Jim O Sullivan
Due to the weather forecast for Tomorrow with wind forecasts to gust up to 70kmh we are not taking any chances and are cancelling sailing for Tomorrow. We are looking forward to the Prizegiving and Laying up Supper next *********** Friday Night****** 20th. If you haven't let us know your coming already please text Emmet 087 2680316 or click the link here http://goo.gl/forms/WzceZTNRoJ
The first of November proved to be a quiet day on the water, with light winds and a small fleet of only six boats. Margaret Hynes and Mike Hayes finished first followed by Chris and Aisling Caher , and then Brian Parks and Mike Logan. The wind died down for the second race but Margaret and Mike came in first followed by Brian and Mike and then came Mike and Sami.
There was a nice slow sail home in the setting sun.
A special thanks to Kevin, Oonagh and young Micheal, for doing OOD.
Well done to Aoife and Niamh in their first race in a RS 200.
We have only two Sunday's left and are hoping for a big turnout as we want to do a bit of publicity so see you all on the water. Thanks to all the extra helpers who have "volunteered" to do rescue. All help welcome.
This Years Laying up supper and prize giving will be in Durty Nelly's Bunratty on Friday the 20th of November and Emmet would like to have an idea of the numbers attending. Please confirm your attendance for the laying up Supper by clicking onto the link here.
