Christmas Evening – 16th December 7pm

On Saturday 16th December there will be a Christmas celebration at the club. Mike Etherington is organising the entertainment, which will be of its usual high standard, with assorted musical and humorous contributions from many members of the club and their families.

This is always a great evening and you should put it in your diary now. Newer members who attend Tuesday training – if you haven’t experienced a Sailing Club Christmas entertainment before, you should make sure to fill that gap in your experience this year. And if you have a talent for any kind of entertaining, musical or otherwise, please get in touch with Mike and offer your services. 

The Facebook discussion is here, or please email webmaster@swanagesailingclub.org.uk and I’ll forward mails to Mike.

The food will be on a ‘Bring and Share’ basis. Please bring something interesting and preferably seasonal to eat. Quiche, pate, cheese, sausages, mince pies and cake all come to mind, but the choice is yours. Just remember to bring at least as much as you intend to eat!

Helpers will be needed earlier in the day to arrange the chairs in the club room and set out a big table in the training room for the food. As I will be away, I would be grateful if someone can volunteer to supervise the practical aspects of the evening, leaving Mike free to sort out the performers.

Important Notice to All Our Sorts of Sailors!

Please note that the club is about to host its annual meeting for sailors. This has traditionally been named the “Active Sailors’ Meeting”. This meeting is your golden opportunity to have your say about the kind of sailing you want to enjoy and how to make it even better. It’s a great opportunity for sailors of any experience to come together – whether you are just beginning training, are an experienced series racer or prefer social sailing and cruising.

The meeting will be at the club at 11am on Sunday 26th November, just 24 hours after the AGM.

So please come along and get involved.
