Under our Constitution, Rule changes are required to be posted to our main noticeboard for a period of 30 days before they can come into effect.
As Members are not visiting the clubhouse in volume at this time, although we have complied with the requirements of the rule and this notice has been posted today in the clubhouse, we have also posted it to our website where members have a better and safer opportunity to view.
The below rule changes have been approved by the Main Committee and will come into effect from 18thJanuary 2021. Objections should be emailed to Secretary@sussexyachtclub.org.uk no later than this date where they will be considered by The Commodore and if required, his committee.
