Dear Commadore, Vice Commodore, Committee and members of Thorpe Bay Yacht Club,

It has been 6 months since I started as Catering Manager at the club which Jenny and I have been members of for 17 years and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support in the new venture which now allows all the staff to work together as one.

I would like to thank Donna and all her team for working hard with me to embrace the changes made to improve the service to the members and their friends and families.
Also thank you to Sara Speller for her hard work and support promoting Friday club nights.

I would also like to say a special thank you to Barbara Herve and Margaret Kennedy for their endless supply of fresh herbs from their gardens which are readily utilised and much appreciated.

It was an honour to cook for those members who attended the 70th anniversary celebrations, huge congratulations to Anthony and Lisa for their organisation over the whole weekend the club looked fantastic. Speical thanks to Mick Kilkelly for his assistance and support at the Christmas and 70th ball.

My final thanks goes to Janet for her daily help and support to enable the smooth running of both the club and kithcen.

I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible over the Summer months to enjoy the Balcony Menu that has now been launched. There is a busy Summer ahead with Cadet week, Moth Nationals, Kestrel Nationals, Hornet Europeans and Cadet Nationals as well as the regular Oppie Beach club.

Once again, many thanks to you all for your continued support.

Kind Regards
H

Family night (Friday 20th) Sailing kit exchange

Summer has arrived just in time for our first Oppie Beach club. We start this Saturday at 14:00 (changed by the back of the clubhouse). Oppie Beach Club is open to all cadets and adults new to sailing who wish to get on the water for some informal tuition, practice skills form last year or just get in a boat with someone else for the first time. Parents are expected to help hold boats in the water if their child is participating.

On Friday at 7pm we will be going down to the dinghy park to look at how to rig different boats. This is useful for cadets and adults who don’t know or can’t quite remember how to rig and Oppie, Pico or Laser.

In the bar before and after the rigging session I am going to trial a Sailing kit exchange where you can bring any unwanted or too small kit and donate it to the cadets, if the kit is what you need for this year then you may take it and will be expected to provide a small paper donation do the Cadet fund. Thank you.
