Newsletter - December 2016

Seasons greetings to all,

I am delighted to have been voted in as Commodore of Crookhaven Harbour Sailing Club again for the coming year. I am looking forward to the year ahead, and woking with a great team of people on the management committee to ensure the sailing season for 2017 is a resounding success.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in completing the works to the clubhouse last year, and I'm sure you can all agree that the clubhouse has been restored to it's former glory.

Plans are being finalised for the junior sailing course 2017, and recruitment of our instructor team has already commenced. Application forms for the sailing course are available here on the website and as always, new members are extremely welcome.

I look forward to keeping you all up to date with progress made by the committee throughout the year.

Have a wonderful and safe Christmas, looking forward to seeing you all next season.

Peter O'Leary.
