I offer all members a very warm welcome for 2018.
I would like to thank Steve Stanton for 10 years of unstinting commitment to the RYYC and for all his hard work and dedication.
I joined the Club in 2000, sailing a Dart 18 at Blyth Park, joining forces with the Main Club for Regatta. At the subsequent Main Club Prize Giving I met, amongst others, David Stamford, who managed to persuade me to buy YOD11 Joca from Eric Austerfleld. Joca defeated me with my inadequate woodwork skills and consequently 1 bought Contessa Juliet and have continued to sail her for the past 9 Years.
I am joined by a new team of Flag Officer; Julie Lodge, Steve Wood, Christian Brash and Joe Franks. Working together with support from club members we will strive to achieve high standards for the RYYC.
We start the year with the news that the Marina Project has been put on hold. However, on the positive side, we now know that the RYYC will be remaining at Windsor Crescent so we can proceed with improvements to the Club building and the exisiting harbour facilities will now be improved with hopefully more berths becoming available.
The Sailing Programme has been finalised with input from members of each sailing class. The racing handicaps this year are being changed from the Bridlington Handicap System to the National IRC. Our main focus for 2018 is to improve the sailing experience and to fit social events around the sailing calendar.
Blyth Park, under Joe Franks’ lead, has produced a sailing programme for 2018. There will be racing every Sunday with the addition of specified weekends when sailing will take place over both days. A RYA windsurf training weekend is being arranged there at the beginning of June and a Dart National TT event later that month.
Over recent years, the Pier End Race Officer rota has proved difficult to maintain. This year I am pleased to announce that 1 have been approached by three very experienced Race Officers, Jim Evans, David Stamford and Anita Ingham, who have kindly offered to assist when required. We are very grateful.
It is important that the RYYC moves with the times and the general committee works hard to live up to the expectations of the members. The role which the membership can play is to support the club by taking an active part in it.
I sincerely hope that 2018 will be an enjoyable and successful year both on and off the water.
