WORK PARTIES

An email was been sent to all members requesting help with work on the moorings

Please email moorings@ea-cc.org if you can help. Thank you!

 

A big thank you to the few who responded. Members visiting the site can't fail to notice the progress that has been made although there is still a long way to go. Honourable mentions go to David and Ruth Thompson (Evergreen), Colin and Liz Chettleburgh (Breeze), Mike Jones (Nutcracker), Brian Wilkins (Catspaw), Adrian Lincoln (Tinkerbell), Neal Duffield (YB Lycaena) , Tom Gabriel (Maeve), Julia Bower (MC Come Along) and Paul and Jane Stevens (Pippinjack).

 

On 26th April, David improved the access to the shed and outside racking with boarding, Ruth started painting the shed, Colin serviced the two strimmers, Jane cleaned the BBQ and filled some rat holes in the bank, Paul and Tom G shifted and levelled some more mud. Last Thursday Brian and Mike shifted and levelled a lot of mud and Neal and Paul cut and strimmed the grass.

 

On Friday 30th April David, Mike and Paul undertook emergency quay heading work replacing two thirds of the of the badly deteriorated section where Aegis moors.

 

Another session was organised for Wednesday 5th May. The dodgy quay heading repair was finished by David, Mike and Paul and Ruth and Julia finished painting the shed.

TMOR 2021

is regretfully cancelled

 

It is with a heavy heart that the EACC Committee have decided to cancel Thurne Mouth Open Regatta at the end of May 2021 due to the Covid restrictions and to keep everyone safe.

 

With no marquee, no bar, limited socialising, no camping etc, we felt that the event would just not be the same and lack its usual magic! 

I do hope you can find some other way to enjoy yourself at the end of May and that you will, like all of us, look forward to TMOR 2022 when we promise a great party weekend with great racing for everyone.

MOLLIE HOWES

It was with the greatest sadness that we received the news last week that broads legend, TMOR vice president, stalwart of the regatta and trustee of our club,

Mollie Howes had died on 10th March 2021.

 All our thoughts are very much

with her family.

Her son Paul has sent us this obituary.

CHARITY

EACC's chosen charity for 2021 is

NORFOLK SCHOOLS SAILING ASSOCIATION

NSSA is a local charity run by volunteers and based on Filby Broad. They provide sail training opportunities for children aged from 8-18. They get no local authority funding and rely on grants, donations and membership fees to cover their operating costs.

£818.00 for NANSA

 

(Norfolk And Norwich Scope Association for 

teenagers and adults with learning, physical and

David and Lesley visted NANSA on 10th January and presented a cheque for £818
