A Commodores Farewell

Well it’s been two years since I was elected into the position of Commodore and took the helm of Tenby Sailing Club. But as frank Sinatra once said now the end is near. Well tomorrow in fact. There have been many ups and downs but luckily for me there have been more ups than downs...........Just! Apart from doing the normal Commodores organising and chairing of meetings oh and being the face of the club, I have been holding a Commodores Quiz on the last Saturday of the month. Last year the Quizzers of Tenby sailing club rose just over £870 for the RNLI and this year they have raised over £1300. This will be used to purchase a defibrillator that will be housed in a heated cabinet. It will be sited at the bottom of the stone steps near the big grey double doors on the harbour car park. This will not only benefit the members but the harbour users and the wider community alike. The club over the last two years has had a lot of improvements and that intern has started to attract more people into the club. I do hope that this trend continues and the club goes from strength to strength. If you haven’t been there for a while or never been in at all, come on down for a drink and a meal with the closest and best view of the harbour in town.

Thank you to all that have supported me over the last two years and see you around sometime, now that all remains for me to say is farewell and fair winds.

Six teams came to the last and final quiz by this commodore anyway, the mega quiz went down a treat and everyone enjoyed the night. The night was sponsored by Molson Coors Brewing Company and all that took part were given a small token of appreciation in the guise of a bottle of prosecco.

The scores on the doors for the night went like this, in sixth place with the best score they have ever had were the Lone Dogs with 70 points, in fifth The Four Amigos with 79. Next in fourth came the Bo Ho’s with 91, next in fourth Princess Consuela Banana Hammock with 93. Then the top two were the Dashers with 98 and in first as ever the Cola Clan with 103.

Just as it happens all six teams have been taking part in the quiz league that has happened all year, this is where the monthly scores carried over until the final and totted up to find the club champions. The total league scores are as follows in sixth the Lone Dogs with 237 points, in fifth Princess Consuela Banana Hammock with 371 points. Then in fourth The Bo Ho’s with 373 then The Four Amigo’s with 373.5 in second the Dashers with 463.5 and top of the shop for the second year running and should apply to Egg Heads the Cola Clan with 497 points.

All this year we have been raising funds for a Defibrillator to be sited outside the club at the bottom of the stone steps by the big doors. I would like to thank all the quizzers that have come to the club on the last Saturday of the month for the last two years come hell or high water to take part and raise money for two very worthwhile causes. Last year we raised over £870 for the RNLI, and this year we have reached and passed our target of £1300 to have a defibrillator in a heated cabinet to be fitted outside the club on the harbour for the benefit of the members, community and visitors alike. Not only has this been raised by the quizzers but from private donations including Astral Azure Engineering Services.
