For your information the Annual Dinner Dance at the St Georges Hotel Llandudno last Saturday (23rd) was a great success in every respect. 80 of us attended, the Dinner was of a very high standard and the Disco kept us all dancing away until early morning. We had a fantastic and entertaining mix of Members and Guests including a really good turnout from the Conwy RNLI. Our Principal Guests were Captain Matthew and Lesley Forbes (Conwy Harbour Master) who replied to The Commodores speech on behalf of the guests with amusing “Tales of the Sea”. The Commodores Cup for the NWCC Yachtsman of the Year was presented to Tony Brooks, and his Yacht Amethyst, and acknowledged Tony’s amazing involvement in our 2013 Sailing Programme. Tony was so pleased with his success that his post award celebration is rumoured to have resulted in him having to be lowered into Amethyst by rope at the end of the evening. Well done Tony and Amethyst.
Thank you all for attending and making the whole evening so much fun, your support is truly appreciated. A very special thank you to our President Terry Worthington and his lady Dot who both worked exceptionally hard to ensure that the evening was successful.
Please don’t forget that our next Club event is the Christmas Fayre on Saturday 7 December, this day is always great fun with Father Christmas arriving by boat at 1200 followed by all the usual festivities at the Club. The proceeds of the Fayre are always donated to a worthy charity cause. This event is followed on Thursday 19 December by our Special Christmas Quiz Night and Grand Raffle Draw. There is no booking list for either of these events, just come along and enjoy yourself and, bring a plate of food if you are participating at the Christmas Quiz on the 19th.
After Christmas our next event is the New Years Eve Party at the Club, the details of which will be posted this week both on the website and on the club notice board. Book early to avoid disappointment.
Finally, for now, I have attached for your information our updated RYA Winter Training Programme, now is the opportunity to book up for any of the array of training on offer after christmas in the run up to the 2014 Sailing Season. Why not book either yourself, or a member of your crew, a course as a christmas pressy!!!
I look forward to seeing you all soon.
Yours in Sailing
