It seems hard to believe that my first year as Commodore has passed already and what a busy year it has been. The 27th October saw the final races for both yachts and dinghies and at long last the sun made an appearance. With the addition of more 707s throughout the season the yacht racing this year has become more competitive than ever. It is hoped that next year they will get their own class during Henri Lloyd Falmouth Week thus encouraging other boats to come down from other parts of the country.

The Development Plan is again progressing at some speed and we hope to get phase two started soon so that the new balcony can be in place before full time opening next Easter. Whilst all this work is taking place I ask you all please to be tolerant of the disruption – the wait will be worth it. A really big thank you needs to be passed on to all involved with the Development Plan as many hours of work are given free in support of this worthy objective.

There is a wonderful new social programme for the autumn and winter (details further on in this Newsletter), with some new ideas and events, so please do try and support them as they have always proved to be great fun. However please do try and book your meals in advance which will help Tom tremendously.

We are very lucky once more to be holding the Annual Dinner Dance 2013 at the Budock Vean Hotel. After last year’s great success we are expecting tickets to be in great demand so I suggest you get your bid in early. More details and a ticket booking form are in this Newsletter.

Finally I would like to thank Penny and Helen for all their hard work carried out in the office and to all the Committee members for giving up so much of their own time for the Members’ benefit. Of course my thanks also go to Tom who throughout the year has created great meals for everyone at very reasonable prices.

I would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and prosperous New Year.

Julian Samuel – Commodore
