Following the very high wind conditions at Holyhead Monday evening and overnight into the morning of Tuesday 17th October I am pleased to inform you that only minor damage to sail covers and furled jibs was caused to yachts on the moorings. A great confirmation of the benefits of our moorings here at Holyhead Sailing Club.
Brett is keeping me informed and we will be notifying the owners who have incurred some damage during the course of today.

Running Your Club
Can I remind club members that we need to plan for the running of Holyhead Sailing Club next year.
At our AGM on 25 th November, members will need to elect the committee to run the club. This time
around it is more complicated because immediately prior to the AGM, we will be having an EGM to
vote on whether to change the structure of the club from an unincorporated Members’ Club, to a
Community Interest Company, limited by guarantee.
Therefore, the Notice Board, which is always ‘up’ in the club bar during the month of August, calls for
nominations for the 2 possible outcomes at this EGM.
If we vote against becoming a Ltd Company then we will need officers plus a management
committee. On the Board, this is on the left hand side and headed as OPTION 1. If we vote to
become a Ltd Company, we will need Directors, and in order to give some continuity, the 3 flag
officers. This is on the right hand side of the Board and headed OPTION 2.
There is still [just] an opportunity for members to be proposed for the forthcoming year. It is quite a
challenge to try and get the club functioning for the best interests of all the members, while staying
financially sound, compliant with everything we have to do, and still moving forward with members’
Lots of you like a challenge.
Please consider standing. Names must be entered on the board by close of play on August 31st.
Signature of the proposer and seconder are needed. If your proposer/seconder are not able to
physically sign the board, Nigel Dennis (Commodore) and/or myself are happy to propose or second

EU45 Anti Foul Member's Offer 2017
Following the success of the Member’s Anti-foul Offer from last year where we got to the maximum discount rate we are hoping to reach the same heights with this year’s offer. As you will see from the table in Stuart’s email, attached below, we need to get an order of 40+ tins to reach this 34.41% price reduction. For more information go to EU45 website
The feedback I have had from members is mostly very positive, with a single complaint from Phil on Just Enough that after his several attempts to make his J92 go quicker, to match the performance expected of his handicap, he has worn through the 3 coats he put on. Way too much scrubbing Phil!
I seem to recall that the launches were painted with a mixture of old antifoul and EU45 which may explain why that was not so successful.
Quote: “Meridian out yesterday for the winter and EU45 antifoul seems to have worked well. Just a bit of slime and spotless after a quick wash.”
