Award for Phil of the Yacht Club!.

Today received this from Andy Glen our Secretary.

You will know Phil if you go regularly to our club nights, he's the guy who makes sure the bar is stocked up and is always there to help out with any joint events with our clubs.

Received it from the Secretary of the yacht Club.


 Our own Phil Howarth has been honoured  by the Royal Yachting Association for his lifetime commitment as a volunteer at Etherow.

He was unable to attend the ceremony in London last Friday where he would have been presented with the award by HRH the Princess Royal.

The official programme for the event says: "Phil has been a member of Etherow Country Park Sailing Club (ECPSC) for more than 40 years and has served on the committee continuously. 

"He was involved in two major extensions to the club house; digging out the footings, constructing the internal walls and decorating and has given his free time and DIY skills to its upkeep. 

"He has worked tirelessly to ensure that novice sailors receive quality instruction and feel welcome at the club, even lending his own dinghies to others. 

"Supportive of the club’s initiatives to encourage participation and raise funds for charity, he has organised innovative events both on and off the water. 

"Phil’s consistent commitment to all aspects of ECPSC has been crucial to its success."
ed by the Royal Yachting Association for his lifetime

Well deserved Phil, from all at the EMBC!.

2nd November 2017.

2nd November 2017 already!, where has the time gone the last month!.
This Thursday was at the lake and saw that we have a new rescue boat, well new to us that is!.
David Lee and a few others were busy fitting a a seat in it whilst I was there,





Alan The Breeze was sailing his warship.

Alan, not a care in the world!.
That's Colin in the background going for some more batteries, our lives seems to evolve round them these days don't they, what with Pacemakers and in some/my case hearing aids!. 

This one will need a larger battery I'm sure!.

Then there are the One Metre's that usually run on small AA batteries with the wind supplying the power and the batteries just altering the position of the sails and rudder, little effort for so much speed.



You can probably put a face to the name but can you put a boat to the face??.
