The latest addition to the clubhouse is a chart showing all the lights in St George’s Chanel and Irish Sea flashing in their correct sequence. Many thanks (and congratulations) to the Club President Graham Drinkwater for creating the electronics for this, and to Stuart Williams for framing it.

Holyhead Sailing Club AGM November 24th 2018

A short report on this year’s AGM which was held, as normal, at the Clubhouse at 13:00 although the start was a little delayed. The Commodore, Kim Argyle, Opened the meeting with a welcome and a minutes silence for those members who had passed away over the year.

The meeting then moved onto a briefing on the year from Nigel Dennis, the chairman of the board, before Sue James, the company secretary gave her report.

The main items on the agenda, changes to our ByLaws were then taken in turn with all the changes being discussed with the members before being voted on.

Initially the minor changes to the bylaws were approved with the rules of membership getting a good number of comments and questions from the floor, as did the issue of quora for sub committees. This particular proposed change was amended and quora of 3 members, including 1 director was adopted for sub committees.

The revised bylaws will be posted on the website shortly after the amendments have been carried out.

On Saturday 23rd June Holyhead Sailing Club held one of the CRYC events in the 2018 series.

The club has worked hard over the years to provide facilities for the youth and cadet sailing participants and with the expansion of the club’s facilities for the yachting and keelboat classes following the downturn in March it was great to see this event so well prepared for and so many people, both from the club and the wider audience, involved on another wonderful day in Holyhead Harbour.

Two yachts from our racing fleet took part in the ISORA races 7 and 8 from Liverpool to the Isle Of Man and back to a virtual finish line mid Irish Sea allowing the competitors to go to their destinations. Ruth takes first place overall - her first race win in the 2108 race series and Nigel Ingram's new J109 Jetstream from Holyhead came an impressive second place overall. Glyn Sheffield with his replacement Farr 40, Espresso Martini Too, came 5th overall so an excellent result for the members from Holyhead.
