A Picture a Day...

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).

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.

A Picture a Day... Thanks for All You Do...

First of all 'Happy Easter', we hope you and your families are all well and have a peaceful day.

Today's picture is Dave Jones our power boat instructor who has been running courses for our Bartley members for more years than I can remember. There is a reason the courses can be offered for only ¬£30 and that is because Dave gives up his weekends to train just for the love of it. 

But it is not just Dave, it is Dan the Bosun who keeps 6 rescue boats serviced and running, it is the Committee members who organise the building upgrades, the electric certificates, the insurance, the intruder alarm, the accounts, the website and marketing, the contracts with Newman Uni, Birmingham Uni, Local Schools, the Sea Scouts, and Andrew SImpson Foundation. It is the army of helpers who do the things we take for granted at the club - Mark for the results every week, Alan for the dutyman schedule, Nick for boat park and membership processing, Steve for buildings maintenance, John for grounds maintenance, sailing committee for making sure all the race management resources are available, Greg for running the Bar and Leanne and Lorraine for putting the soul into the club with Tilly's Galley. 

Then there are the future sailors - the K2O instructors and helpers who have to maintain their certificates and first aid qualifications as well as all the paperwork that goes with running an RYA training centre, and then give every Saturday morning throughout the Summer free of charge to get youngsters on the water. And then there are the members who help during working parties and continue to support the club by carrying out rescue duties.

We are not a service provider, we are a community with a shared interest - so a big "thank you for all you do to support our club!

VR inshore - 4 races of the current series to go...

Is Richard Baker really that good? It appears so as he goes into the final weekend of the first series heading all leader boards! I have found his secret though - lots of practice as I was up against him in one of the Day boat public races today and he was 2nd to my 4th in a fleet of rather fiery Italians and Spanish sailors!

On Monday I will start a new series with Stars as the slow tactical fleet, Formula 18 as the Cat, 49er as the fast single hull, and a 4th race 'just for fun' with a variety of boats to try out.

The turnout this week has been great - hope you are all enjoying your racing!

A Picture a Day - We're sinking 1

This photo reminded me of the German coastguard joke:

Merlin Rocket: 'We're sinking! We're sinking!'

German Coastguard: 'Vhat iz it you are zinking about?'

(Don't worry - I won't be giving up the day job just yet...)
