Spring is in the air and also the club AGM, March 2017

Spring is in the air. It’s Sunday 12th March 2017.

A leisurely club walk around produced some great images. The colour blue is creeping back into the sky. A whole new sailing season is now just ahead of us!

Members please note: the 2017 AGM will take place 26th March – 10:30am at Wyre Villa Football Club – Stalmine. Annual subscriptions are due 1st April. They can be paid at the AGM. Let’s all get together and talk about another great year to be had, sailing in and around Morecambe Bay.

Club Silver Jubilee: 29th – 30th August

Thanks to all for the suggestions as to how we mark 25 years of Wardleys Marine Yacht Club!

Plans are now taking shape, and all members will receive details and a personal invitation by email or post.

The outline plan is as follows:

A cruise will leave for Piel Island at around 11:15 on Saturday 29th.  There will be a sign up list in the clubhouse for all interested in taking part, whether you have your own boat or not.  The more the merrier!

The fleet will return on Sunday 30th, when HW is around 12:00.

Later that afternoon there will be a buffet meal, live entertainment and a BBQ later in the evening.

No doubt there will be many stories told of events over the last 25 years, and the Committee hope for a good turn out to share in the fun.

 

Crane In – Sat 18th April

Crane in dates rely on the combination of spring tides and good weather – there are a series of possible days starting on Saturday 18th April through to Tuesday 21st April.

The crane is booked for Saturday 18th April, so let’s hope for good weather and low winds.  HW 11:23 BST, 9.7m.  Members involved need to be on site early!

The craning plan is on the Clubhouse notice board – if your details are incorrect or missing, please contact a Committee Member as soon as possible.
