We have been immensely lucky to have Jacquie Dove on board this year, Jacquie is ridiculously organised and very persuasive and somehow she has managed to get the Club completely up to date with all things such as GDPR.
2019 saw the passing of one of Lynmouths Mariners, Edward Nightingale*, as many of you know Edward was a keen observer of all things going on in the Bristol Channel and reported regularly in the Lyn Valley News on such matters. Edward also maintained a notice board in Lynmouth Flood Hall showing details of regularly passing ships etc. This board has been in disuse for some time now and with kind permission of the Lynmouth Flood Hall committee we have taken this on as our Club Noticeboard.
We are extremely excited to see them on the water in Lynmouth this spring. We will be holding a ‘Christening’ for them as is traditional, this will be held with the usual Lynmouth Sailing Club flare and will involve much canon firing and shanty singing.
This years Regatta and Maritime Festival will be held over 3 days, 13-15th June 2019. We will be holding races and entertainment every evening with a full day of nautical capers on Saturday 15th. More details to come as they are confirmed.
In November each year we hold an evening of Fireworks and Capers to celebrate Bonfire Night. A huge warming Bonfire is the centrepoint for an evening of fireworks, music, dancing and miscellaneous capers.
