Forthcoming Treasurer Vacancy

In November this year, Steve Yoxon will have completed four years as club Treasurer and, with a lot of hard work, he has managed to get the club accounts and financial systems into a very good state. However, he now finds that his work is competing too much for his time and would like to hand the role over to a successor.

We have decided to advertise for a replacement Treasurer now, so that the successor can shadow Steve for several months, including preparing the end of year accounts.

For details, please see the attached Job Description.

To apply for this post, which will fulfil Club Duty requirements, please apply to the Hon. Secretary, Jan Sobey, secretary by 15th May 2015.

BBQ/Galley volunteers required (PTBO & Family Fun Day)

Please can I have some volunteers to assist with the BBQ/Galley for Push the Boat Out (Sunday 17th May) and also Family Fun Day (Saturday 18th July). I need 3-4 additional volunteers to enable the BBQ to run smoothly. We normally serve between 100-150 people and it gets very busy as you will know if you have attended. I will be there as well as Jane, but we would appreciate some assistance.

If you can email me to confirm socialsec

Many thanks

Dutyman – Final call for Wetside Volunteers

Thanks to those who have recently volunteered for Wetside duties. However there remain further vacant positions for patrol boat helms / crew and race officers for our 2015 season including many across the summer months. The ‘at risk’ events include the High Water Cruise, the Regatta, the Family Fun Day – plus many of our standard summer races.

  • If you have not yet been into Dutyman to select your duties, please do so as soon as possible.
  • If you have already selected some duties, please could you pick up an extra one or two? This applies particularly to those who have only selected winter duties. We know you select winter duties because you like to sail in the summer – but unless those who sail in the summer also do summer duties, there can be no summer sailing!
  • If you are on our reserve list or have fulfilled duties elsewhere, please could you do a duty or two?

The sailing season cannot operate without volunteers. This is a final call for volunteers before we start cancelling events that are not fully rostered. Please help us to keep the sailing calendar thriving by volunteering.

Dutyman can be accessed directly from the links on the Tudor website. If you need help accessing Dutyman, please contact Tim Gallier on duties.

If you no longer wish to be on the Dutyman list, please let Tim know.

Sailing Secretary
