Lucky 100 Club October winners!

1st  prize number 15 -   Linda Moore
2nd prize number 23 -  Joan Sherry
3rd  prize number  5  -  John Corrin

Linda won first prize in the August draw and then decided in September to have a second number-15. This has won first prize in the October draw, so lucky Linda has recouped the whole year's payment for this second number. Well done Linda! You still have two further chances of winning  each month for the next 11 months.
Our chairman Arne has also just joined the club so good luck to him as well as all the other members.
We do need more members to join The 100 club. The more members we have then the greater the prize money and also more funds are raised for SFTD. Please do consider joining giving even more support to the charity.
Application forms can be downloaded from the website or obtained from Margaret on 832212.

A succesful training trip in Welsh waters

In June this year, a visiting RYA training company offered their free time to the charity and assessed some members for a certificate of competence. Fast forward three months and after lots of planning, four anxious aspirant
yachtmasters set sail for North Wales, wondering what they'd let themselves in for!
As there was forecast poor weather, our enthusiasm and perseverance were sorely tested but once we were in Deganwy and met Ian Thomas our instructor, we regained composure and confidence. We worked hard as a team to rehearse all the processes and manouvres that were likely to be part of the exams.
Two days of navigating, pilotage and boathandling, one day of reading the theory, and we were into the exams with strong winds and tides in unfamiliar surroundings! Our examiner was thorough but pleasant, asking us lots of questions and directing us to undertake actions and manouvres we'd| (luckily) rehearsed! Morning, noon and night, we returned to Deganwy to receive the news that we'd all passed.
So, now SFTD has more skippers more highly qualified to continue the good work of providing more sails for our members!
