2016 AGM nominations

The 2016 AGM will be held on Thursday 15th September and nominations are invited for the Executive Committee; which will not exceed 12 members and which comprises of a Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Treasurer, Secretary and at least five and not more than eight other members who will manage the Charity and there must be a mix of members with and members without disabilities.

As a member of the Charity and provided you have attained the age of 18 years, you are eligible to vote, be nominated to serve on the Executive Committee, or to nominate another member to serve. This gives you an opportunity to play an active role in the day to day organisation and to help structure the course the Charity will take in the future.
The Charity requires many volunteers, without an Executive Committee the Charity cannot function. Although some members of the current Committee are prepared to go forward we urgently seek new people willing to be part of the Committee.  If you do not want to be part of the Executive Committee there are several other roles that require an enthusiastic volunteer, such as Membership secretary, Yacht Manager or Crewmaster. Please consider coming forward and volunteering your time to running the charity.

If you have any questions please contact our Secretary by email at secretary@manx.net or contact any member of the present committee.

Nomination forms should be returned to the Secretary on or before 29th August. You can download the nomination form here.

Welcome to our new members

In less than one month we have received 23 new applications for membership of the charity; the vast amount of whom applied following our very successful Open Day. The applications come from persons with a disability and also from people who wish to help crew the boat and give support to our enabled sailors.

Training for some of our new crew carers has already started and it’s very pleasing to see the enthusiasm of those who have started the training.  Some of the new members already have their names down for sails so please make them welcome when you sail with them.
