A Picture a day - but not a good one today :(

 Whilst we all do what is necessary during these strange times there are those who think it is acceptable to just drop their rubbish wherever they feel like so long as it is away from their property. Thank you for those members who brought this situation to our attention. Luckily Newman University have a camera that points to the area and have identified the culprit as an individual in a people carrier - the rest is up to the police to trace them and take the required action. In the mean time the council have been informed and will hopefully remove the rubbish, unfortunately at the tax payers expense. There are some great stories of people helping each other selflessly in the current crisis, it is just unfortunate that there are also a minority who act in a completely selfish manner wasting time and resources that could be better focused elsewhere. 

In other updates - thanks to all members who continue to support the club, and remember that if you are struggling with your membership due to circumstances out of your control then please get in touch rather than just cancelling and we will try to work together to keep you sailing and the club still operating.

The club Directors continue to explore government and Sport England avenues for cost saving opportunities - a big thank you to Tony for filling in and submitting the paperwork as it is a time consuming task.

Thanks also to Dave, Dan, and Steve who have been making sure that all moving parts of the club are kept serviced and operating so we can hit the water seamlessly when restrictions are finally lifted.

Hoping you are all safe and managing in the current climate, and remember that you can sail virtually every weekday evening and twice on Saturday and Sunday.

How many people has Ann taught and helped to start their sailing journey? It must be in the hundreds. Thanks Ann!

Photo thanks to Debbie

A picture of Supernova 497 being happily sailed by me was the "First Photo of the Day". I felt I wished to send copies to my (grown up) children and asked Debbie for permission to do so. She has kindly not only sent me 4 copies of the photo, but also an enhanced jpg. as well with no charge.. Many thanks, Debbie!
These "photos of the day" have been so uplifting to keep us focussed on returning to sailing rather than giving up when all this is over. Many thanks also to Simon for having the idea and processing the daily dose.
Stay safe! Alan Birch

A Picture a Day - points for style?

Tom Daley or Mike Gibson - they have so much in common, from physique to swimming attire (allegedly) but when it comes to the Pontoon diving section it has to be Mike for style (certainly looks like he will make less splash than the K2O crew).

A Picture a Day...

Most of the photos I have been using have been taken by Debbie Degge, so here is the photographer in action herself. Thanks for supplying the photos - feedback from members has been very positive.
