Dear Torbay Sailing Club Members,
We have recently completed our 2021/2022 sailing calendar with a successful running of our annual club championships. This was the culmination of a turbulent year of a late season start and the unfortunate cancellation of our Sir Peter Blake Torbay Regatta. The second half of the season was very successful so hopefully the early disruption is a now distant memory.
It is now time to celebrate the season with our prize giving event which for this year is set for Saturday 18th June. You are invited to join us from 5pm onwards. More information will come in due course, but there will be some sort of dinner arrangement for a small fee, and a great time had.
It is really important to come and congratulate those who have succeeded this season within our club. But also, really important to turn up for the following.
The prizegiving is where we begin the process of receiving nominations for elected positions. We also look to fill other roles within the club for the upcoming season, in this case the 2022/2023 season. Please note nominations may be received after the prizegiving until 7 days prior the AGM in writing.
At the most recent General Committee meeting, we have had some members indicate that they will be stepping away from various positions so we will be looking for enthusiastic people to fill these roles. As elected positions (after ratification at the AGM) do not take effect until the beginning of the new season being the 1st of September, you will have the opportunity to work alongside the person whose role you will be taking on.
Here is a brief run-down of what will be on the whiteboard at the prizegiving for you to put your name against, or put nominations in for. Please send any nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org, before the prizegiving. A nomination form is attached.
Flag officers: Commodore, Vice-Commodore, Rear Commodore, Honorary Secretary and Honorary Treasurer
General committee: Flag officers, plus 5 - 10 other members
Sailing committee: Rear-commodore (chair), plus up to 15 other members including fleet captains
Other roles: Heaps of them, if everyone just does a little bit. See attached document.
We are working on drafting up some information around the roles. If you have any queries in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact David (021 628 847), Mark (021 710 723) or Linda (021 266 0496).
