EACC NEWS UPDATES
A digest of items of news and business under discussion by the committtee which
maybe of general interest to members
 
 
JANUARY 2018

A sub-committee led by Liz Chettleburgh has met with the Moorings Landlord’s Agents regarding the lease. Discussions with the land owner are ongoing.

 

The Membership Secretary is ready to send out membership renewal forms and Privacy Policy to compliy with the new data protection regulations which come into force in May this year. All members must sign and return. Subscription Standing orders should also be changed to £21 by 1st March.

 

A  work party at the moorings is planned at the end of February. Details will be on the website in due course.

 

It has been confirmed that the 24 hour moorings at Thurne Mouth will definitely not be available for TMOR again this year.

 

Club rugby shirts are available, email Lisa Burton with orders.

 
DECEMBER 2017
Nick Wiggins has stood down from the committee, and we now have a small team led by Liz Chettleburgh dealing with the lease negotiations. More news on those as we get it.
 
Due to the Lady Yacht Club unilaterally changing the date of their event held at Thurne Mouth, we have had to change the date of the Autumn regatta from the 30th September to the 14th of October. This has also meant that Steve Burton, holder of the Crystal Ball trophy, is unable to run the planned new event that was to take place on Saturday 29th September.  This is a real shame, but it is felt that it would be too difficult to run what would have undoubtedly been a popular event at the same time that the cruisers and white boats of the LYC are racing on the same stretch of water. Steve has yet to decide which event he will put the Crystal Ball trophy up for.

3rd December 2017,  NEWS ROUNDUP FOR THE YEAR
 
The treasurer has done some sterling work this year on the finances, and has produced a forward planning study that keeps the finances under tight control and will ensure our financial viability for the foreseeable future. This has led to the committee taking the decision to increase the membership subscription and the mooring fees by a small amount. Annual subscription has now risen to £21.
 
The club site has had new quay heading on the river frontage, and Tom and David are going to be doing more running repairs over the next few months. Planning permission for this covers the whole site and as we have started the works is not time limited. To help cover the cost we have decided to increase mooring fees also, and these rise to £15.11 per foot.
 
The new lease for the club site has still not been officially signed, but the costs have all been agreed and the treasurer has taken this into account in his master plan. The Skipper wishes personally re-assure everyone that EACC's relationship with the landowners is excellent, and there are further negotiations over the possibility of taking over plot 6 ongoing. However no decision will be able to be made on that matter until later on next year.
 
We have formed an excellent friendship with the YSC, helping them out with a safety boat for the Breydon regatta and bringing most of their trophies north for them. Look out for details of the joint social event planned for the 13th of January.
 
For the first time we have adopted a charity to support, this year it has been the Nancy Oldfield Trust, and we have raised over £300 for them this year.
 
TMOR was another great success, despite losing the 24 hour moorings. The new infrastructure has  worked very well, set up and takedown were much improved, and the new layout of the marquee and the floating pontoon were very successful.
 
Please note that the dates for 2018 events published on the website are still provisional - the Autumn Regatta and Autumn cruise particularly are still under consideration.
