The election of officers was:
Coomodore - Sue Parkes
Vice Commodore - Don Brown
Rear Commodore - Gary Stock
Treasurer - Simon Parkes
Secretary - Gordon Howard
Membership Secretary - Simon Parkes
RTC Principal - Gordon Howard
Welfare Officer - Gill Dyer
Bosun - Roger Dyer
Assistant Bosun - Dennis Gem
Senior Instructor - Richard Viggers
Sue said that she hoped to stand down next year.
Gordon would like someone to take over as secretary: if there is a volunteer, they can be co-opted to the post.
The accounts showed a deficit of about 150 pounds of expenditure over income and we have agreed to increase membership fees from 52 to 57 pounds and for concessionary rate, from 32 to 35 pounds.
Boat park and storage charges are unchanged.
The council has raised the water licence from 60 to 70 pounds, and for concessionary rate from 35 to 40 pounds.
Simon has disputed this as being much greater than usual and than RPI, but it seems unlikely that the rises will not be imposed as stated.
Further information will be posted when the minutes are available.
