Dear Sailors and Friends, The ZVYC Open Day and Dinghy Boat Show It was a great day at the club last weekend, with many interesting boats on display and many members there for the ambience of the Club and catching up of all the sailing activities of the last 6 weeks. In fact it was such a beautiful day that even at 17h00 we still had members there enjoying the perfect conditions and the “jamming session” that had developed from the live music laid on. The Junior Training has drawn new recruits, and training will carry on, on Sunday. This year we are also offering training by experienced coaches in Lasers and Dabchicks        For your Diary Alfred Rowing Club talk evening and supper set for Friday 13th February.

Dear Sailors and Friends, This is our the last Newsletter of 2014! If anything important comes up between now and the New Year,  we will communicate this to you  through our SMS system. Last weekend at the Club Alfred Rowing had a Social evening last Friday 12th December  – they hosted a talk by Tommy Brummer a leading Town Planning Consultant on the subject being: “WHAT’S HAPPENING IN CAPE TOWN’S CBD”  . The informative illustrated presentation focused on a number of new and proposed developments in the Central Business District. More News from ARC Dear  All, What to put in Xmas stockings: As you start thinking what father Christmas can put in your beloved’s stocking the fateful morning of the 25th, allow yourself to consider the book “Deeds not Words”, a wonderful coffee table book that will be of interest to rowers past and present, as well as those with an interest in history. The book price is being held down to R375.00 for the Xmas period before the remaining books are sold at a more market related price of R500.00. Books are available through Terry Marsh (terrymarsh.101@gmail.com ) or Anna at ZVYC (manager @zvyc.co.za). It will be a tight fit in the stocking, but well worth it! Kind regards, Martin VANLIERDE VICE-COMMODORE For your diary  A change in the Sailing Calendar The ZVYC Open Day and Dinghy Boat Show have now been brought forward by 1 week toSunday 11th Jan (to accommodate the Port Owen River Race weekend).
