If, as we hope, more than 2 members become nominated for the General Committee there will be an election of all Elected members.

Social/House Management Team

To be able to enjoy all aspects of Langstone Sailing Club, we require a small team to oversee the fun and social aspects of our sailing community.

There are many social events that require managing to ensure that our calendar fits with sailing activities ensuring that members are able to enjoy the best of all that is on offer.

The galley is a major aspect of socializing and therefore requires managing. This involves checking on any duty rota and ensuring that those on duty follow health and safety guidelines as well as preparing tasty food.

In the past we have had a number of annual social events as well as more spontaneous ones on a 'one-off basis'.
Suggestions of new events which will continue to appeal to our evolving membership are very welcome. Refreshments, ranging from snacks to full meals will often be needed and a larger team would be required to prepare these. There is already a small but reliable group who would be able to support such events and more are sought to make a more versatile and friendly pool of members with an interest in catering.

The main clubroom furniture has been partly updated but other ideas would be welcome in helping to make this a comfortable and attractive area for members

Please contact Paula Brisley or Owen Davies if you are interested in being involved in this aspect of the sailing club.

There are numerous other opportunities to support the club ranging from small simple tasks to more complex tasks requiring special skills. If you can and wish to do more for the club just let the Commodore or Secretary know and they will help to identify appropriate tasks. Managing tasks for the club can be satisfying and enjoyable.
