Lobster Pot Petition

The Cruising Association has re-launched its petition to get the government to improve the way fishing gear is marked at sea.  The previous petition was cancelled earlier in the year because of the general election.

If you agree that fishing gear should be better marked, click here to add your name.  Note that if you signed it last time around you need to re-sign this new petition as the previous names were not carried forward.

Summer Fair Quay Day

We had a successful day with the Tombola stall on the Quay and made £86 which was not as much as last year, but it all adds to the pot!!  It was good fun and worth the effort.

Quite a number of Club Members helped in various ways, from those donating Tombola prizes, to sticking the numbers to each prize, to the Commodore and a couple of “elves” erecting the Gazebo and moving the equipment to and from the Quay. A good team effort.

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.

Many thanks to everyone who helped.

Alan Courtney, Commodore

Tombola Prizes Needed!

We urgently need prizes for the tombola stand on the Conwy River Festival Quay Day. The club would appreciate any unwanted gifts including children’s toys.

If you would like to donate anything please drop it off in the clubhouse on or before Saturday 19th.

Fitting Out Supper

The Club was packed out last Saturday for the fitting out supper.  This was the first time we have used the new caterers for a hot buffet, and it was very successful – there was nothing left at the end, anyway!  We also held a prize raffle and for some reason John was especially keen on getting his hands on one particular prize…

The evening was buzzing and busy, here are some pictures: » Read more

Burn’s Night 2017

The great and the good (not to mention, some of the others too) gathered on Saturday 28th January to celebrate Burn’s Night.  The Chart Room was completely full for the meal, which started with the welcome and Selkirk Grace given by the Commodore, followed by a first class Scotch broth.  The excellent haggis was addressed and cut by our President and was then demolished, with plenty for seconds and even thirds for the adventurous.  The meal was topped off with cranachan cheesecake / whisky trifle and a toast to the lassies was given by Ken Robinson, with Carrie Thompson responding on behalf of the lassies.  It’s something of a miracle that Ken made it through the night, considering Mary’s dagger stare could have cut a haggis!  Finally, the Membership Secretary gave a fine rendition of the Drunken Scotsman.
