This weekend is your last chance to enter the competitions:
Closing date for entries is Tuesday 31 January. The constitution sets the same deadline for submitting proposals to change our rules, so contact the Secretary now if you have something in mind.
For other proposals and nominations the submission deadline is Friday 17 February. We’re looking for volunteers to fill vacancies on the committee. If you’re interested yourself, or you’re thinking of someone else who might be suitable, please contact the Secretary or Commodore.
The Annual General Meeting will be held on Saturday 4 March at the DMYC in Dun Laoghaire. Formal notice and other details will be published soon.
Club Night Talks
Many thanks to John Leahy for an entertaining and informative talk about Cruising Weather last Wednesday night. The event was open to non-members, and at least one participant was so impressed he immediately applied to join the Association.
The next talk is by another member, Jonny Sedgewick. He chartered a yacht and cruised in Mallorca with his young family last September. On Wednesday 8 February he will tell us all about it and answer your questions.
Later in February we have a return visit by the people behind eOceanic. Among other developments there’s a new app in Beta testing at the moment.
The website has a list of our events and dates that is kept up to date as plans change. You can always find it in the menu under ‘Events’, and it’s public so you won’t have to login.
Note that the Irish Sailing Cruising Conference has been postponed to Saturday 11 March.
