Welcome to the "2015 Events Section" where you can raise and discuss ideas/proposals for next year's events programme in the run up to the AGM.
A number of ideas have already been aired on the website including Clyde, Isle of Man, North Wales and North West. These ideas are particularly interesting because attendance at northern events seems to have tailed off in recent years compared to the very well attended events just a few years ago in Windermere and Clyde.
When agreeing on the programme for the year, the Association tries to co-ordinate things so that events occur throughout the main sailing season and include a range of events to meet the needs of as many members as possible. So geographic location, inland, coastal, school term times, etc are all considered.
The next newsletter will contain all the usual information regarding the Agm but in the meantime please keep the ideas coming including any possible totally new locations. If you have an idea but don't want to be the organiser then don't hold back - just let us know what you have in mind and maybe another member will offer to organise the event.
By the way, if you are at all interested in any of the ideas do please respond early if only to express "provisional interest" as this will help considerably at the AGM when finalising the programme.
