As we exit 2016 and start a New Year I’m filled with optimism for the future and for all that 2017 promises to offer. However, as I look back over the last couple of months I am reminded that life is a gift and we should all embrace and enjoy it as much as possible. In December, we lost Hugh Carter, a member who gave so much to KYC along with other local groups. More recently we lost Tim Whatley who also did a great deal for the club over the years as well as for Keyhaven River in his role as river Warden. I was lucky enough to know both these gentlemen and along with many others, I will miss them greatly.
Having taken over from Malcolm Lee as Rear Commodore Sailing I’m beginning to understand what a task this role is. It isn’t until you are behind the wheel that you can see the hazards ahead and can steer a course you believe to be true. The vision is to increase the number of members enjoying everything that Keyhaven Yacht Club has to offer and particularly sailing activities. Sailing comes in many forms and it is the goal of the sailing committee to facilitate the opportunities for members to enjoy this wonderful activity. Whether it takes the form of playing swallows & amazons in the river on a sunny afternoon or banging around the cans in whatever your weapon of choice is, we hope to facilitate your enjoyment.
To this end the sailing committee have started a programme of work to help steer a course towards these goals and I would like to outline some of them to you in this newsletter.

The new website is designed to allow members to login and see information which is not available to the general public.
This includes Committee minutes, club training and policy documents.
Each member has a login which is their email address as used by the club on regular emails. Individual passwords will be sent by email.
The Members Area also allows members to book club boats and resources, and to see who has already booked if they cannot find something they want.
