Annual Dinner and Awards Presentations

 

Beaconsfield Golf Club Dining Room

Each year in April after the AGM and close of the Spring Talks programme, GXSA holds an annual dinner which has approximately a hundred attendees. There is a prestigious speaker from the world of sailing who also awards three silver trophies which have been donated to the association by past members who have been most appreciative of the companionship they have enjoyed during their membership.

Report on Chichester Rally - 28th June

by Chris Green

GXSA Rally Regulars (plus some very welcome first-timers) met at Chichester Marina, on the south coast, for the Mid-Summer Rally.  Dinner was held at the new facilities of Chichester Yacht Club.  The weather, location, welcome, accommodation, facilities and food were all first class.

Many thanks to Stuart for organising us.

 

 

 

 On the Sunday morning, some went to Chichester cathedral, some walked to Dell Quay sailing club and some stayed in bed.

Saturday Specials

Once or twice a year, GXSA organises training courses for the benefit of its members. These are usually "one day events" held on a Saturday which cover various topics according to demand. Where appropriate, these have the benefit of RYA approval and certification. Topics have included: astro navigation, radar, knots and splices, diesel engine maintenance, boat electrics, GRP repairs and first aid.

 

GXSA Masterclasses

These are significant one day events organised around a particular topic and open to a wider audience than GXSA members.

The last event was in Autumn 2011 when Jimmy Cornell, author and highly experienced yachtsman explained the intricacies of Ocean Cruising. It was very well attended.
