How are you all. Since last speaking to you, I have been to USA to visit my family: Steve Rawlins retired and is off to visit family in UK – thank you Steve for all you and your staff have done for us over the years.
Meleney Cuniff has joined RNYC as Club Manager and is fitting in to the RNYC family very nicely.
So holiday done and dusted and back to reality – I was saddened to learn of John Banfield’s demise and attended his funeral with a number of other members of RNYC. My sincere condolences to Mary and Family.
The official start of the sailing season will take place on 17th September and thereafter, our ANNUAL R N REGATTA will take place from Friday 22nd to Monday 25th September 2017. Once again we have lots planned for the regatta but cannot do it without our SAILORS. Let’s have a bumper number of entries this season please!!!
Wednesday night Fun’d sailing – watch this space : we have secured sponsorship from a very generous RNYC member – A sincere thank you does not seem enough – final details to follow. This sponsorship ensures we have another bumper season of Wednesday night sailing and don’t forget, we will be on the CANSA drive again – please let me know if there is a specific cancer area we could put the funds towards this season. All requests will be gauged appropriately.
Yours in sailing
