New system for Duty Crews

New system for Duty Crews

To all duty crews

Over the last month we have spent a considerable amount of money and time sorting the safety boat fleet at Bartley.

Costs have included £200 for Kill cords , £200 for hatches damaged by concrete weights in the Black Humber RIB and £400 for new dry bags which I will go into further detail below.

I thank you all for your continued consideration for protecting the props as the damage has been low last year especially considering the fluctuating water levels we have experienced during year.

There is a new system in place for collecting and returning the safety boat keys and kill cords in place at the club. We are using the cupboard in the main club room to hang the keys and kill cords and new safety bags. Each hook is labelled for the boats and so are the bags.

The cupboard will be locked in the near future and the key will be on the duty keys, this is to prevent access by people using the room for functions.

download 1

Please draw your bags and keys for the boats you require from the day but do not use them if the hook has a red label hanging on it as the boat will be offline. O.O.D. Please note in the picture there is a race results box on the door and place result sheets in there if Mark Reddington is not available to take them off you at the end of racing. Could all duty crews please place the safety bag and keys back on the correct hook at the end of the day and Not leave them in the boats. and the O.O.D. Is responsible for locking the cupboard at the end of the day and handing the duty keys back to the bar.
 
The safety bags will have the following kit - Safety Knife, Whistle, First Aid Kit, Spare Kill cord, mini multi tool and a survival blanket. Please only use the knife in an emergency not for general boat bimbling as they need to remain sharp in an emergency.
They are all vacuum packed as you can see in the picture below.
 
  IMG 0694 
If you use the kits for any reason please inform me or leave a note in the cupboard so I can replace 
and repack
the bags if required.Please use the tear point in the bags if you need to open them as it will be easier, this is shown in the
picture
below

download
Please do not mix the bags or the keys up, Please help me to keep the kit in the right order you never
know you might be the person who needs it one day!Thanks Howard!!!

Pontoon Update!

Hi All, 

Just an update on the pontoons!

Please see the picture which shows the disability section only with the winch / lift for non ambulant sailors!

Pontoons are scheduled to be delivered and fitted Thursday 5th May and should be completed by the end of the day, this includes removal of the old sections which are being sold on to two prospective customers.

Just to remind everyone there will be two sets at the cost of £47k and as you can see from the picture they are constructed from a grp waffle which means that and bird effluent will be rinsed away by rain or waves.

If you any further questions please don't hesitate to ask and I will try and answer

Thanks

New Pontoons For Bartley!

New Pontoons For Bartley!

Good News! 2016 gets off to a great start for the club.

Severn Trent confirmed the order for two new complete pontoons for the reservoir yesterday and they will be going into production during the next three weeks ready for Installation during April this year.

We have been incredibly lucky that we have managed to address the long term issue of the original pontoons not being able to withstand the prevailing conditions at Bartley, prior to taking ownership of them next year as per the recent lease agreement.

What I am sure of after some hard work ensuring the new spec pontoons cater for our immediate and future needs, is that we have a quality builder delivering bespoke quality pontoons that meets our expectations coupled with proper Installation that will withstand the worst of weather.

Please see the picture which demonstrates what the pontoon will look like, although we will not be having decking but GRP Decking like on the current boardwalks. They will be galvanised steel construction and 2 meters wide and the left hand pontoons will come with a winch for disabled sailors and the hand rails but not the right hand set.

If any one wants further information please ask me when I am available at the club. 

Howard

Ann Kelly Response to Award

To Mike and Bartley Sailing Club

26th November 2015

Thank you so much to John, Howard, Mike and everyone who supported and nominated me for a RYA 2015 Volunteer Community Award.

It was with great pleasure that I attended the ceremony last week to receive the Award. The ceremony was held after the RYA AGM and hosted by Sarah Treseder, RYA Chief Executive and the award presented by HRH Princess Royal. There were over 50 Award winners including 15 Community Award winners.

Colin (my Husband) and I had a wonderful time and were treated like royalty ourselves. In her opening speech, HRH thanked not only the award winners but those who supported them. She said that sailing would not be the sport it is today without the hard work and dedication of its volunteers. She recognised sailing, as being a learning ground for so many life skills and wanted it to be a place where, especially children could learn to understand risks for when, in the future, they may not be in a safe club environment.

So many well deserving people received awards and I am very humbled by the work that the volunteers have done and things that they have achieved. From talking to others we have a strong junior section envied by many and that is thanks to all our K2o instructors and volunteers. A true team effort.

Like so many, our Sailing Club is run by a strong team of volunteers who all contribute a huge amount in so many ways to deliver, high quality sailing, teaching, racing and a thriving junior section, in a safe, friendly and viable way, having an excellent club house and sailing facilities.

So whilst I am honored to have received the award, I accept in on behalf of everyone and thank you all for your support, especially Dave and Mandy at the beginning and more recently Howard, Richard and Lucy who have given so much of their time and for whom I thank for getting me so involved and enjoying every minute of K2o and work I do via sailing/main committees.

Fired up with the stories from other clubs I am anxious to encourage fresh ideas and involve many more of you, so please do help and support the club going forward, sailing is a great sport to be part of.

Thank you

Ann Kelly

INSPIRATIONAL ANN KELLY AWARDED BY HRH THE PRINCESS ROYAL

INSPIRATIONAL ANN KELLY AWARDED BY HRH THE PRINCESS ROYAL
bham awards web
 
Three Birminghamh sailors had their inspirational volunteer endeavours recognised by Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal at the annual RYA Volunteer Awards in London on Friday (20 November).
Mike Colles (Midland Sailing Club) and Steve Perring (Earlswood Lake SC) were honoured with RYA Lifetime Commitment awards by sailing's national governing body, which recognises individuals who have shown exceptional commitment and dedication to their club or organisation for at least 15 years.
 
Meanwhile Ann Kelly (Bartley SC) received an RYA Outstanding Contribution Award, for individuals who have made a significant volunteer contribution to their club or organisation, either over a period of time or a 'one-off' effort.
 
A total of 53 awards were bestowed upon volunteers from across the UK, recognising their exceptional generosity and dedication to boating. The awards ceremony and luncheon was held at One Great George Street, where each award winner was presented with a commemorative medallion and certificate.
 
Mike, from Selly Park, has been a member of Edgbaston Reservoir-based Midland SC for over half a century. He has held numerous senior committee posts and been responsible for many landmark events and activities as well as securing funding for new changing rooms and also the creation of disabled facilities at the club. In eight years as the club's Training Principal he helped many local people gain their qualifications and go on to sail regularly. 
 
Shirley-based Steve has been an Earlswood Lake stalwart for over 20 years, playing a key role in club development, including the acquisition of club land and the replacement of aging infrastructure, while also providing vital support to the Worcestershire Schools Sailing and Canoeing Association (WSSCA) . His dedication extends to his time as a Powerboat Instructor and Race Coach, honing the skills of countless club sailors and powerboat drivers. 
 
Born and raised in South Birmingham, Ann has been responsible for delivering Bartley's thriving youth training programme, 'K2O', which regularly has 30 sailors aged from 8-17 sailing each Saturday morning and continues to give many children the opportunity to try sailing. She actively encourages people of all ages into sailing, regularly taking new members out on the water while as a Senior Instructor she also helps deliver formal courses to adults. 
 
The trio were both nominated for their awards by the clubs and organisations they work with and selected as winners by the RYA Awards panel. 
Duncan Truswell, RYA Sport Development Manager, said: "The RYA Volunteer Awards are our opportunity to say 'thank you', on behalf of clubs and associations that affiliate to the RYA, to their volunteers, the people that really make a difference to help people get afloat. It's our opportunity to take a bit of time out to appreciate the commitment these individuals make to the sport in helping people get afloat safely and enjoyably."

Sam & John Knight win RS400 Sprint Championship

Congratulations to Sam & John Knight on winning the RS400 Sprint Championship at Rutland last weekend.

Sam & John sailed with impressive upwind speed in conditions averaging between 25 to 30 Knots on the Saturday and were one of only a couple of boats in the fleet not to tip it in. It was a great event with a fantastic turnout of 7 boats from Bartley with a very enjoyable after sail drink organised between Howard's and Richard's vans we retired as a group of 14 to the Wheatsheaf pub were some food and more ale was consumed in large quantities.

We all awoke Sunday morning and after breakfast were relieved to be informed that racing had been abandoned due to high winds and Saturday's results were to count for final positions.

Well done to all and a great evening at the Wheatsheaf, Next up Bartley 26th April where i am sure we will get some visitors keen to take on the champs!

Rowing @ Bartley

Rowing @ Bartley

Hi All,

If you happen to be wandering around the club this weekend you may notice a new boat, one that you have to sit in facing the wrong way and it has no sails. Please don't be alarmed we are not about to be swamped with rowers who are going to take over our perfect sailing venue.

Bartley Outdoor Pursuits are trying to strengthen it's Business model by diversifying and offering further activities to schools, youth groups and adults, we have been talking to British Rowing for some time about developing rowing on our water for schools and groups and obtaining the apropriate kit to do so safely. The boats they have given us are 4 man sliding seat gigs but are designed with a coastal application which is why we will be having two on site at Bartley due to the average conditions we experience. Both myself and Adrian are going to be trained by British Rowing to deliver the sessions.

The long term aim of Bartley Outdoor Pursuits as mandated by the management committe of the club is to support the target of increasing membership of the club making us a strong venue, I have learnt that with the help of the RYA, BCU and British Rowing development officers we are increasingly being thought of as a watersports hub. What does this do? well it helps us to improve our facillities and attract more members, through supported funding applications by all three National Governing Bodies.

With membership always at the peril of falling we may need to offer catogories of membership such as rowing or canoeing or stand up paddleboarding, it may be in a form of a reduced rate and no voting rights almost an associated membership catagory? either way it is for you the membership to decide but what is important is that the club continues to grow and develop so we can all enjoy our racing now and in the future.  see you all on the water Howard
