The Committee is responsible for the overall running of the Club on behalf of the members. It meets regularly to consider major issues affecting the Club. Elections for committee members are held annually. All Committee members are volunteers and rely on help and support from the members to keep the Club’s activities going. Members with issues they want discussed in the Committee are encouraged to speak to any committee member with their concerns. Committee members have designated roles and designated responsibilities (see Contacts page for details) – they cannot run the Club without help and will ask for volunteers from time to time – please help if you can.
The Training Principal is responsible for planning and co-ordinating the Club’s extensive training programme and events. The Club is an RYA Recognised Training Centre and the Training Principal, responsible for the safety of those involved in training and for the standard of tuition, answers to both the Committee and the RYA. The Training Principal appoints the Chief Instructor and the volunteer instructors who all hold the appropriate RYA qualifications. The RYA inspects the Club’s Training Centre annually.
The Sailing Secretary is responsible for organising the Club's annual racing programme and other sailing events. This involves planning the programme, overseeing race management and delegating tasks as necessary.
The Social Convenor is responsible for the social aspects of the Club's activities. This involves organising social events to keep members in touch with the Club and providing the social side of major sailing events during the summer.
