Pay Membership by Direct Debit

We have just launched the facility to pay your membership fees using Direct Debit.  Direct Debit makes the renewal process much quicker and easier for you, and you will always receive the discounted rate for early payment.

All members who have given us their email addresses should have received an invitation today from GoCardless – the company we are using to manage the payments.  Signing up is really easy using an online form, takes 5 minutes, and there’s no postage involved, so if you wish to use this service then just click on the link you received by email.  If you have more than one member at the same household and would like to pay them all on the same Direct Debit, you can do that too – just sign up once and we’ll work it out, or email us with any special requests.

If you are a member but haven’t received an email, you can still sign up by clicking here.

Note that we won’t be taking any payments until renewal time next year, and you will still be able to pay by cheque, or behind the bar by credit card, if you prefer.

Trafalgar Day

The morning started un-promisingly with rain and poor visibility, with some debate over whether it’s all worth it, but we decided to trust the weather forecast.  The live rain radar looked like the rain would sweep through.

So we headed out in full oilies.

By the time the fleet got to C6 there were signs of the sun trying to appear.  By the time we got to the start line at C1/C2, the sun was shining and there were reports of a fully costumed admiral being spotted on Mahalo.

Though apparently the admiral wasn’t aware of the correct way to wear his hat.

Conwy River Festival Quay Day

NWCC set up a stall at the River Festival this year.  As this was the first time we have run a stall, we did not know if it would work as there was competition from other similar stallholders.  With superb teamwork and team spirit, the day was a success and we made £125.

Quite a number of Club Members helped in various ways, from those donating Tombola prizes, to sticking the numbers to each prize, to the “Posse” of men the Commodore rounded up so very early on a Saturday morning to erect the Gazebo and move the equipment to and from the Quay.

In addition to the Tombola we had some home baked cakes for sale which were provided by our very own “Mary Berry” – Sue Jones.  They were delicious and so professionally packaged.

Three stalwarts of the day were the Vice Commodore, Carrie Thompson and Brenda Wilkes who managed the stall, all of the day with good humour.

Good day, good result and very worthwhile.
