Thinking ahead, the committee would like to know what your thoughts are regarding our current boat Pride of Mann III and what you think could be improved when we would purchase a new boat. Please make some time to fill in this questionnaire as your opinion is very important to us.
Volunteers are needed to help with this Bag Pack in Shoprite, Peel on Saturday 18 May!
As well as raising funds to keep our fantastic yacht Pride of Mann III sailing, bag packs also help to raise awareness of the charity.
Please contact Adrienne on 833497 or mobile 466514 if you could possibly spare an hour or two to help with bag packing or talking to customers and give information about SFTD.
Many thanks to Shoprite for letting us use their store.

All of you tech-savvy members reading this will be familiar with WhatsApp, the free messaging app which is very widely used.
Currently our Skippers & Mates have a WhatsApp group which is used successfully to communicate between them. One of the group, Bobby Moore skipper & Boat Manager, has suggested that SFTD starts a new group for all members who would like to join in order to improve communication about boat/sailing -related messages, news of social events etc.
If you are interested and would like to be part of the group, email YES to email@example.com
If there is enough support for the idea we could get a group up and running fairly soon.
