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

The monthly music nights have kicked off for 2017 – the first took place on Thursday 30th March.  The music was great but the musicians deserve a larger audience, so please put the last Thursday of every month into your diary.  Here are a couple of pictures and videos from the night, to give you a taster:

St. David’s Day Celebration Dinner

Flag of Wales

On Saturday 4 March 20 members gathered in the Chart Room for a delightful three course dinner. The room was suitably adorned with Welsh flags and lovely Daffodils on the table. After dinner, musical entertainment was provided by the Conwy’s.

Thanks are expressed to the Commodore, Vice Commodore and Bob Angell for spending time setting up the room.

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.

Dinner Dance 2016

The club’s annual dinner dance took place at the George Hotel on the 26th November. It was great to see everyone scrubbed up, though one or two of the sailing fraternity were hard to recognise without their oilies on!

It was also really good to see our overseas contingent in attendance, and the lifeboat crew were also extremely welcome, providing professional backup in case anyone had trouble navigating the waterfront afterwards.
