Commodore's Comments 2018


Welcome to another year in The Schooner Cove Yacht Club. I am writing this in December and it is snowing but I anticipate that by the time that you read it (if indeed anyone does) the sun will be out and the boating season well under way.

This year promises to be an exciting year for the club and for Schooner Cove. Construction is now started on the “Westerly” building and the development of Fairwinds Landing, together with the anticipated changes to the Fairwinds Marina are promised to start very shortly. It is now 10 years since the old hotel closed and we look forward to the proposed improvements to our ‘home’ marina.Your Executive members have put together a full programme with all the usual events, a full social programme and hopefully some new additions. I would particularly encourage you to come to the summer 2nd Friday social ‘get togethers’ at the Afterdeck. If you have ideas for further additions to our programme, please let us know.I am also aware that many of our most loyal members are not moored at Fairwinds Marina or live further afield and I am anxious to improve the value that you get from the club. Please give me your suggestions. And finally, the club is run entirely by volunteers and the more volunteers that we have the easier it is for everyone. Whatever your skills we will have somewhere to use them. Please join in - just tell us what you would like to do.I wish you a safe and happy boating season.Commodore
