RSC Commodore - Alistair Johnson
to Reading Sailing club, 2014. This year is the clubs 60th anniversary, I am sure
it will be a very exciting year as we have planned our usual full calendar of
sailing and racing activities on and off the water. We will also put special focus
on social events to bring our members and friends together in this important anniversary
During 2013 many new members have joined and on behalf of the committee
I would like to extend a very warm welcome. We hope you enjoy the very warm and
friendly atmosphere of the RSC and you participate fully with all aspects of the
club activities. The founders all those years ago wanted a very inclusive philosophy
and this remains a core principle of the club's approach to members new and old.
It has been important for the club to develop its affiliations with the
RYA. I am delighted that the efforts of our top class instructors has been recognised
by the RYA and we are now a training centre of excellence. As members, you will
be able to join in with one of our many courses to improve and build on your sailing
and boat handling skills.
Finally, may I wish you all jolly sailing in 2014,
it will be a great year.
