It’s time to start that diet ready for our Christmas Dinner function on Sunday 11th December at the Douglas Bay Yacht Club.
With a three course meal, games, a quiz and carols this is going to be an amazing afternoon starting at 1pm. Father Christmas might even pop in to see us. Tickets are £25 each; even Ebenezer Scrooge would think this is great value! But we have barred him and his Bah Humbug.
Please contact Neil Johnson on 401811 or by email email@example.com, tickets which must be paid for at the time of booking. Booking closes on the 2nd December and all members and family are most welcome.
The Crewmaster has posted an extensive sailing programme that currently runs until the end of November on the website. In the programme you will find short sails, day sails and local cruises which you might be interested in. In addition to what is published there maybe opportunities for other sails if you cannot find one that suits your needs, please let us know what you want.
In the programme in addition to our member sails you will see sails for various community groups, these we can accommodate by using some of the capacity we have that is not taken up by our members.
In order to support the sails on the programme we need the help of the skippers,mates and crew without you the boat will not be able to sail. Please come forward and offer your services and thank you to those of you who have already come forward .
Please email Crewmaster@manx.net if you would like to join a sail.
If you are a Facebook user then the sailing programme can be viewed via our FB page.
On Sunday the 18th December from 2pm to 4.30pm a charity bingo will take place at the Palace Bingo on Central Promenade.

The bingo promises to be a fun afternoon with the tickets costing £20, which includes a finger buffet, your professional dabber and your 10 page bingo book. Could you be a lucky winner and win much more than the cost of your ticket? Winners guaranteed and it could be you!
Please support this event and contact Mike on 492217 to book your tickets.
On the 11th of October our Patron Sir Miles Walker and Lady Walker celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary with family and friends at Colby Football Club. The happy couple who were married in Peel Methodist Church had among their guests some of those who attended the wedding.
Donations to Sailing for the Disabled were requested in lieu of gifts. All at the charity wish the couple congratulations on the occasion
