The autumn newsletter is out

Our excellent Autumn 2016 Newsletter which has been produced by Linda McCauley has now been released and it has been emailed to all members who have email accounts, hardcopies have been posted to members who don’t have access to the internet.

The Newsletter is available by clicking here for you to read.

Changes in the committee

Following the resignation of Steven Dennett and Michelle Felton from the charity, both who were elected as  committee members at the September AGM  and who held the positions of Vice Chairman and Membership Secretary there have been some changes in the organisation.

Neil Johnson has become Vice Chairman and Carole Quayle and Roy Maddrell have been co-opted onto the committee.

Monica Clark has offered to carry out the Membership Secretary role, a position that she previously had and which she carried out professionally.

Should any other member wish to help with administration or committee work please can you contact the Chairman Arne Dahn by emailing sftd-chairman@manx.net

Your assistance would be appreciated and without people to carry out the administration functions the charity would not operate.  

New lifejackets

A number of new lifejackets made by Crewsaver have been purchased to replace some of the older lifejackets which whilst safe were visually starting to show their age. The cost of the new jackets were funded in part by the collection taken at the Flag Day in Port Erin in September and were supplied directly by Crewsaver at a discounted price by a means of  sponsorship .

The new jackets have built in spray hoods, lights, are easier to fit and adjust and importantly have a higher buoyance rating than our previous ones.  

SFTD wishes to thank Crewsaver for their support and we are sure that the lifejackets will serve the charity well for many years to come.

Sailing for the Disabled Christmas Dinner function

It’s time to start that diet ready for our Christmas Dinner function on Sunday 11th December at the Douglas Bay Yacht Club.

With a three course meal, games, a quiz and carols this is going to be an amazing afternoon starting at 1pm.  Father Christmas might even pop in to see us.  Tickets are £25 each; even Ebenezer Scrooge would think this is great value! But we have barred him and his Bah Humbug.

Please contact Neil Johnson on 401811 or by email neilsj@manx.net, tickets which must be paid for at the time of booking. Booking closes on the 2nd December and all members and family are most welcome.
