Notice from the Committee

 Dear Bartley SC Member,

We hope you staying safe and in good health at the current time and those of you participating at Bartley are enjoying your water sports.

The Committee held their monthly meeting last night and discussed the Annual General Meeting. Under current government guidelines we cannot promote gatherings of more than 6 people and we need 26 to be quorate so a face to face meeting is not yet possible. Our constitution doesn't allow for remote on-line AGMs and as yet the government rules prohibit this too so we are in a holding pattern as to the date at the moment. We will schedule the AGM as soon as we can and as such are kicking off the process for election of flag officers and committee of management.

Three of our five directors will step down at the AGM after numerous years of service, we thank them for their significant contribution to bringing the club to its current level of success and now need replacements in order to both function day to day and to continue to grow.

If you feel you have the skills, the vision, the desire to put something back into the club, and the ability to work collaboratively in a team then we would love to hear from you by providing an expression of interest to by 30th June 2020.

In terms of commitment the committee meet monthly to review finances, administration, maintenance, marketing, on-the-water activities and plans for the future. Workload is distributed and progressed between meetings.

There will be a full handover and support for those who are prepared to take on a committee position.

The process is as follows:

Expressions of interest to be submitted to by 30th June 2020

Nominations for Flag Officers and Committee of Management 4 weeks prior to the AGM

Election of Flag Officers and Committee of Management at the AGM (voted for by current members present)

This is a great opportunity to gain experience running a small business, taking a role of both influence and responsibility, and putting back into the shared interest community that you enjoy.

We very much look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards

Simon Hardiman

Rear Commodore

GJW ITCA GBR Tidal e-sailing Championships

With the absence of the International Topper Class national series events they have been running e-sailing series events instead. The latest of these was the Tidal championships that consisted of 5 races on Saturday evening to determine the top 60 competitors split into groups of 20 for the Gold, Silver, and Bronze fleet flights for the finals on Sunday night.  

Millie participated for ITCA and Bartley and as soon as she entered the first race it was apparent that this was going to be tough with the UK e-sailing champion and runner up in her race! She took it in her stride though and managed a couple of high placings (3rd and a 4th) that saw her through to 32nd place out of 114 competitors and qualification in the Silver fleet for Sunday.

Sunday's racing was tough but again Millie punched above her weight (which is actually quite light) to come 11th in the Sliver fleet and 31st overall. She was quite pleased to beat her RYA coach by 2 places too :) which could make the next squad meeting quite interesting!

At Bartley we have enjoyed the e-sailing whilst the real thing hasn't been available but now we are back on the water the participation has dropped to a couple of members so it feels like time to draw a close to our club scheduled VR Inshore races and let those who wish to continue playing join the available public races and championships. Thanks to all who have supported this, it has built new friendships, kept us connected as a club, and taught us a lot about tactics.

Lively Saturday

It was a great day of sailing today. The fleets were exercising hard, the juniors were literally screaming across the pond, and Nigel and Freya found the bailer in the Merlin!

Thanks to Collin and Sean for providing rescue cover today with some help from Cecily and Kerry who took a few pictures whilst on the water.

Some of you may be aware that Derek Campbell one of our ex-commodores and long standing Bartley SC member has been suffering from ill health for a while now. I received the following from Gloria Rickard today which she asked me to pass on so sailing club members know where they can visit him;

'I spoke to Christine Campbell on Monday and Derek was hopefully being transferred from the place in Tipton to St. Josephs Home in Harborne: 71 Queens Park B32 2LB. Tel.No. 0121 427 2486'
