A message from the Steward

Club functions have recently had a poor uptake, which resulted in the hard decision to postpone the Summer Party, upsetting those that already had the date in their diary

Club events require sufficient interest in order to be viable and having only a few members signing up in advance, clearly gives myself and the house committee a problem... we are here to entertain and please you rather than gamble with club funds!

In order to book a band, produce quality food at reasonable prices and generally put on a good event, I really do need you lovely members to try and book or express your interest well in advance. Only then are we able to commit to booking a band. Please remember: No bookings = No event!

Support your Yacht Club, book your places as early as you can and join in the fun!

Dolphin Sightings

BRIGHTON DOLPHIN PROJECT

The Brighton Dolphin Project launched by the World Cetacean Alliance aims to connect people to the incredible marine life off the local coast. Their new Discovery Centre, based on Brighton beach next to Brighton pier, is where they are collecting data regarding Brighton’s current and historical dolphin populations. They are very interested in photos and video footage of dolphin encounters caught by the public.

If you have any information/footage of encounters with dolphins that would be good for their Discovery Centre please visit their Facebook page and report any sightings or information. Other social media includes: Brighton Dolphin Project
