12 December Rodger organised Christmas nibbles, moved from Wed 15 due to worsening Covid Omicron. The intention was to sail first but there was drizzle at 13:00, 0.6 knot current and only 3 to 7 mph wind; half the forecast, no one wanted to sail. 10 members had Pizzas and Indian snacks.
04 December 53 members attended the AGM and prize giving; the most members at the club for a long time. Thanks to Rodger for providing refreshments and to Alastair for making the mulled wine. John Botterill has been Commodore for 6 years and was standing down; as no member had offered to take on the role of commodore the club reverts to the President plus three Vice Commodores structure in place before John Botterill had taken on the role. The roles of Rear Commodore (External affairs) and Publicity are vacant. The only other committee changes are Bryan Clements joins as Boatswain, Paul Bryan joins and Jamie Wilson leaves. Covid had reduced activities so members were allowed 2 years membership for one years payment; we still have adequate funds and all fees are unchanged for 2022. John Botterill was presented with a tankard recording his two periods of service as Commodore. Josh had compiled an excellent video of AQSC 2021 sailing highlights; we were entertained by Nigel projecting it on to the large screen. Graham helped Richard distribute the trophies; Graham had won 8 of the 15 trophies.
