Coronavirus Update (2020-04-05)

Message from The Commodore

Hopefully I find you all well as you ‘furlough’ at home and keep your distance from all other human beings. I’m sure that you are all engaged in absorbing pursuits, such as putting ships in bottles, or building models of the Eiffel Tower from matchsticks, but I thought I’d interrupt you to let you know of a few exciting things that are happening at the Club .... which demonstrate that the Executive have not all entered suspended animation. Here we go,

  • At the AGM in December I pledged that the number one goal for this year would be to commence renewal of the powerboat fleet. We recently applied to Sport England for a grant and we heard on Friday that we have been awarded £6,000 for a new powerboat. This is fantastic news for the Club. The application was based on supporting our initiatives with the U3A and other external organisations. Many thanks to Ian Hughes for putting the grant together and Christine Howorth for providing the supporting information. We already have a boat earmarked for purchase … let’s get revved up.
  • The Pickering dynasty (Rob and Mike) has been working hard to get all of you couch potatoes (sorry, gamers) to compete in a series of WLYC eSailing races. The RYA have negotiated with Virtual Regatta to provide a Club VIP pass to WLYC so that we can try out this darned, new-fangled innovation. Mike has organised two Series Class racing events on each Tuesday and Thursday in April at 7.30pm. The first was on Thursday (April 2nd) and was a great success. Twenty-three Club members signed up so far for the series (and, as we're past the 31 March deadline, all have paid their membership fees). On Thursday, 18 sailed and Richard Thorougood was the eathlete of the day. I encourage everyone, young and old, to sign-up and have a go – this could become a permanent fixture of the WLYC sailing programme, so see Rob’s emails for details.
  • Finally just a word about staying in touch whilst you are isolating. It’s very important to maintain your social contact with everyone during this period and there are many ways of achieving this. The Wednesday Lunchtime Launch Group are now having a video conference chat every Wednesday using Zoom to support each other. The Club committees will be using similar systems (e.g. WhatsApp, Whereby etc) to meet remotely. If all else fails there’s always the telephone … phone up a fellow member and have a chinwag

That’s all from me for the moment. Suffice it to say, stay safe and stay sane, and I hope to see you all again in the near future
