Commodore Hugh Harrison welcomed all present and thanked them for attending.

The Covid 19 pandemic has impacted the number of visiting yachts using the Club; we have been mindful of this and have been frugal.

Re sail training: the Club did a feeder session for Year 6 at the school with help from The Alderney Sports Foundation.

We ran 3 weeks of RYA courses allowing 25 children to pass and further their sailing qualifications.

We ran power boat courses allowing 10 people to pass these.

We paid for Danni Woodnutt to progress from an Instructor to Dinghy Instructor meaning we have a RYA instructor on- island.

We have been re-working the boat shed and have made a vast improvement. This included:

– Tidying up and clearing out unused items;

  • installing new racking for winter boat storage and being able to hang the rescue boat from the ceiling.

We have asked architect Mr Pimm-Smith to look at the configuration of the Clubhouse and plans will be forthcoming.

Teas and suppers have been very popular and I would like to thank all those who helped with these in any way.

The Regatta was another success with some interesting racing. This included one Guernsey boat losing a crew member over-board in the over-falls – luckily rescued quickly.

We are hoping to welcome visiting Clubs from England and the JOG event is confirmed to be coming in May.

I would like to thank Rosa for another year of great work running the bar, also Annie and Tracey for their hard work and covering for Rosa whilst she is ill.

And a big thankyou to all our committee members for their dedication and valuable contributions.
