FAREHAM SAILING & MOTOR BOAT CLUB

FOUNDED 1850

 

‘CLOSE QUARTERS’

Keeping you up to date with the latest news from FSMBC

 

Dear Member

 

Welcome to your October newsletter from Fareham Sailing and Motor Boat Club.

 

In the next few pages you will find details of recent happenings  along with details of upcoming events which I hope you will find of interest.

 

The newsletter will be available   on the Club website and for those that don’t have a computer at home, copies will be available in the Club House so please spread the word.

 

Commodores report

IT’S NEW!! One of my personal pledges for the Club was to improve communications and following constructive feedback received on my updates for August and September, have decided to move to a newsletter format.

 

This is our monthly opportunity to share Club matters and I warmly welcome any input  from you to highlight the many different areas of FSMBC that all Club Members can join in with.

 

Thank you to everyone who supported the Charity event for OYTS at the end of August.  We managed to raise £657.00 and with previously raised funds, total to date is £751.10.  Congratulations to Chris & Steve Capel who had the winning lucky entry ticket, a day pass to sail on John Laing, a wonderful prize donated by OYTS.  Other winners of free lift out, 3 free overnight stays and a pair of Boat Show tickets were all Club members which is great – well done all of you.  A formal presentation will be made   to OYTS on November 21st at 20.30 and Gaynor is doing food so please come along as it will be a good evening in the Club.

 

Our AGM is 16th November and a few positions on the Club Committee will be vacant so if you want to make a difference in how the Club is run, please let existing Committee members know as soon as possible for your names to be forwarded for possible election.

Sailing 

 

Barts Bash September 21st.

Thanks to everyone who supported this great cause, monies raised have yet to be determined and information will follow in the next edition of the newsletter.

 

Club boats enjoyed warm sunshine and great sailing in and around the Solent as well as voyages to the West Country and across Channel for those wines and cheeses!  Must be some tales in there somewhere worthy of sharing at a Club talk in the winter months………………….

 

Lots of visitors including the Silhouette rally and Warsash Sailing Club in September is proof that the word is spreading FSMBC is open and welcomes fellow sailors – terrific!

 

Pirates Day

 

After many years of splendid co-ordination, Bill Baird and Carol Murkin have stood down from Pirates Day and I’m sure everyone who has experienced the wonderful escapades will join in with saying thank you for all their hard work and efforts.  The huge  number of children who have enjoyed themselves firing water pistols at their friends on other boats followed by a brilliant BBQ in the dinghy park from Kids and the Rainbow Centre is testament to how successful Pirates has become over the years..  The day is firmly embedded in the FSMBC calendar and I’m delighted that Dave Branscomb has agreed to take on the co-ordination of boats and the Social Committee will arrange the ashore activities.  Bill and Carol have led the way and we will surely follow their brilliant example.

 

Bosuns 

 

Car park lines in Salterns have been newly painted by Pam and Vic Carr, very smart.

Tony has kept the momentum up with numerous projects around all Club areas and has a working board in the Workshop entrance highlighting ongoing work.  If you are able to assist with one or some of these, please check the board and let Tony know what or when you can assist – all help gratefully received.

Social 

 

Trafalgar night October 18th – tickets sold out very quickly but it’s always worth putting names on the waiting list just in case. Please note that the Barwill close at 15.00hrs to allow for setting up for the evening.  This is a ticket event and Club members not attending will be able to visit the bar after 22.00hrs.

 

Bonfire night and Halloween are combined this year on 31st October – prizes or best fancy dress – a right little sparkler!  Tickets £7.00 from the Social Ladies, Jacket potatoes with either chilli or cheeses with a light sweet included.

 

Tickets for the Dinner Dance which is being held 15th November  at Lysses Hotel in High Street Fareham will be on sale very soon at £35.00 and will be available from the Social Ladies – see you there! 

 

Doreen Clark is celebrating her birthday on 22nd November in the Club – American Supper, all welcome.

 

Also on sale soon will be  raffle tickets for the Xmas raffle so be sure to get some – got to be in to win it!.

 

Loads going on – soon be Xmas…………………………………………!

Other things

 

 

A new addition to the opportunities FSMBC has to offer is the Angling section set up by Stuart Pavey and Kev Syms.  There have been competitions already between the 2 of them and although successful, they could do with more participants!
If this is something you’d like to join in with, please contact Stuart directly who will be happy to advise.
Well done to the guys for getting the Angling section underway and look forward to seeing the pictures of the hard won catches!

 

Building plans for the new folding doors will be available to view in the Club House shortly. Robin Wren has been diligently working on this project for some time whilst also considering the disabled access project both of which will greatly enhance the ambience for the Club.  Be sure to have a look at the plans and thanks to Robin for moving these projects forward.

FSMBC Sailing News

Hi Members

On Sunday 21st September Fareham Sailing and Motor Boat Club will be taking part In Barts Bash, in memory of Andy “bart” Simpson who was tragically killed training for the Americas cup in May 2013. We will be racing against 5965 sailors from 683 clubs from 50 different countries and against yachts, dinghies and windsurfers.

If you do race on the day, you will be racing against Ben Ainslie in a Finn, Iain Percy in a Star, Paul Goodison in a Moth, Jimmy Spithill in a Melges E scow and Loick Peyron in his Trimaran

If you wish to take part in this event and you have your own boat you need to register your intention to race on the Barts bash website, FSMBC has been registered on the website as has the Fareham lugger. As there is a limited supply of club boats, if you don’t have your own boat and wish to take part, Email me at sailing@fsmbc.org.uk and I will allocate you a boat.

It will me organise the event if I know how many sailors to expect and also boost our presence on the Barts bash website if members sign up to race. As this is a charity event there is a signing on fee and sponsorship forms, you can also set up a just giving page on the website. It would be great if as a club, we could rally round and support this great cause whilst having our clubs largest race on the water and racing against a who’s who of sailing superstars.

To complete the registration


1) go to www.bartsbash.co.uk


2) Click Sign me up


3) Enter your details, personal, club and boat


4) Create a just giving page


5) Raise some money

So sign up, get some sponsorship and get out there on the water.

Hello,

This is an invitation for both you and your group to attend the brand new UK Ocean Film Festival being held at the Kings Theatre, Portsmouth on Tuesday 23rd of September. It promises to be a great social night out for your members and there is also a group discount available! From the same team who bring the Banff Mountain Film Festival to the UK, the new Ocean Festival will showcase some of the best ocean films from around the globe; inspiring you to explore, respect, enjoy and protect our oceans. There will be 11 films in total, covering topics such as

the oceanic environment, marine creatures, ocean sports and coastal cultures.

You can watch the trailer, buy tickets, and get more information about the festival by visiting our website: www.oceanfilmfestival.co.uk

It would be fantastic if you could let your members know about the upcoming Festival (as well as any other clubs you think might be interested!) The films are due to start at 7:30, with doors and the bar opening one hour before! There will also be a chance to win a selection of great prizes during the 20-minute interval!

We really hope to see you there!
