Thank you very much to those of you who were able to come along to the Consultation Day on the 10th June. Michael, Mark and I were not short of company all afternoon and we enjoyed hearing your stories of the past and your views for the future of the club. For those of you who could not make it we have set up a short feedback survey on Survey Monkey. To take part please go to:
The survey will be open for 2 weeks from today, Sunday 11th until Sunday 25 June. We will then circulate a collation of all the responses we have received in advance of the Special General Meeting to be held on Saturday 15 July at 11am in the club. A formal notice will be circulated later this week.
As a reminder if you want to refer to the strategy paper you will find that by clicking on:

We look forward to getting your views through the survey.

Entry form, NoRs & SIs now available for Regatta Weekend, Findhorn Week and the Novices on this link http://www.rfyc.co.uk/events.html If you wish to pay for your entry in advance, please contact me and I'll send you BACs details. I look forward to seeing you all there for the weekend and hopefully the week.
Sadly, the Race Officer for the Novices this year, Pete Jackson, has had to pull out due to health reasons. I really need a volunteer to run the racing for the Novices so I'd be grateful if you could contact me if you're available. You don't need to be highly experienced, just have a basic idea of Race Officering and a bit of common sense. I'll happily go through the details with anyone who's interested. We have a committee boat and rescue cover organised and the results would be processed by the shore team. If you want to know more, just give me a call.
A Massif Thank You!
The silent Auction was a great success we raised £1500 plus Gift Aid. A Hugh thank you to those who donated items as well as you bidders who won. This has given a great start to the rescue boat engine fund.
Also a great night was had with the social after in the club supported by Schiehallion I do hope you all enjoyed your evening and it was good to see so many in support of the club. Lets hope this is the start of a very busy and eventful session for all you sailors and social members out there.
Keep you eyes peeled for up and coming events.
A fund-raising ceilidh for 2 BOYS IN A SKIFF on Friday 7 July, just before RFYC Regatta
"The Boatshed Band" have once again volunteered to support the 2 BOYS IN A SKIFF CEILIDH, our local fundraising evening for Gillies Munro & Daniel Harris who are trying to raise enough cash to get themselves around the European 49er race circuit this summer as part of the British Sailing Team.
At the moment Gillies & Daniel are part of P3 Olympic Podium Programme but need to gain sufficient competition regatta points this summer to secure continued support funding.
Tickets numbers are limited due to the capacity of the Hall and demand is high because our local Ceilidh Band is really popular. The bar is provided by Windswept Brewing, local craft beer from Lossiemouth, with all sales to go directly to Gillies & Daniel as sponsorship. Tickets sales to be purchased in advance of the night and are available from Wednesday 17th May, £12 / £10 concession, from Kathleen & Greig Munro or Jo & John Harris
We look forward to seeing you all there. Please Like Gillies & Daniel's Facebook Event page: https://www.facebook.com/pg/2BoysInASkiff/
