Roy Limmer, who together with his wife Val, was one of our most ardent supporters and crew/carers during the 1990’s up till 2015, sadly passed away. There are many members who will remember sailing with him. He was a very kind and gentle man.
Roy was with us when the BBC filmed an episode of Coast here and used our boat for the opening sequence. Our members crewed her but they were not able to get the helicopter to do the aerial shots on the same day as the on board filming was done. When they did arrange for the aerial shots to be taken, Neil Oliver the presenter wasn’t available to come over, so they sent a wig and Roy, bless him, dressed up complete with wig as he was of a similar build and from the air looked just like him.
We all have very fond memories of him. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
The latest Disability Awareness training took place last Sunday at ARC Learning and on the boat. The photos show us doing various practical exercises to try to understand certain types of disability better, and we had fun while learning lots!
The afternoon on the boat had us identifying risks/hazards- just about everything!- and Arne demonstrated the cabin lift and the new EVAC chair.
Thanks to ARC for a great day and to all of you who gave up their Sunday to attend.
It’s that time of the year again when your membership fee is due on the 1st April. Each year our hardworking volunteer Membership Secretary spends a considerable amount of time and effort chasing members to pay their subscription.
PLEASE HELP HER AND PAY IN TIME !
The membership fee is still set at a minimum of £10 but you can make any payment above if you want to make a donation to your charity.
If you pay by cash it would be even more helpful if you were to start paying by standing order, this saves you the effort paying each year and also helps the Membership Secretary. That must be a win-win. The standing order form is available here.
The address to send your money, cheque or completed SO form to is: Monica Clark, 42 Wybourn Drive, Onchan,IM3 4AN
