Sailing and Social Programmes Published

We have now published our sailing and social programmes for 2019. As always, they are subject to change as weather / circumstances apply:

Many events have booking forms so you can book online, or alternatively you can email or sign up on the club noticeboard in the month leading up to the event.

ActiveCaptain and eBoatCards

3e0d6ed7-c26a-4f74-b228-2da14e507df6ActiveCaptain is a worldwide cruising guide that anyone can contribute to – it includes anchorages, harbours and marinas as well as hazards, all reported by users and continually updated.  Users add reviews and comments so you can see where you might like to visit (or avoid).

eBoatCards is a social network for boaters – you join as a boat, not a person, and it includes private messaging, public posting, blogs and groups. The two systems are connected so you only need a single login for both.  If you and your friends run the ActiveCaptain Locations app on your phone, it will plot all your positions so you can see where they are.

NWCC now has a group, so come and join in.

Facebook Integration

I had a go at this today but it keeps wanting to point to my own facebook page instead of the clubs.

I’ll have another go tomorrow, need a coffee now and the kids are coming for dinner.

Membership Database

The current position with the membership database on the website is that it is being merged with the Membership Secretarys database so there is just one database.  This means that there will be no login facility for the members for the time being.  However we are striving to get it up and running as soon as possible.

The current login is for Administrators only.

New additions

I’ve added an events calendar to the home page which makes it very easy to see what events are coming up.  Very pleased with the way it works.  Any dates with events are highlighted.  Hovering the mouse over them brings up a description and clicking on them tales you to the event.

New website

Well I think i’m getting the hang of this wordress now.  Certainly to set up the structure of the site and navigation has been a lot easier than the old Joomla content management system we used to use.  I hope you like what you see so far.  The events are all in but I will flesh them out more with tide times and sailing times.  I’ve done this for the first sailing event and will do the same for the rest.

The next jobs are connecting this to our facebook page, setting up a members database, emailing system, contact form etc
