Deben Yacht Club

tHE programme for this year is nearly complete and is promising a busy season. In the spring we intend to run two sail training courses for club members, the courses will both be held on 4 separate days over 4 weekends; Improvers – this is for people who already have a little sailing experience and want to improve their skills and acquire more experience. Sessions will be on Saturdays 20th and 27th of April and Sundays 5th and 12th of May. Beginners - this is aimed at people who have no sailing experience and want to learn the basics of getting afloat in a boat for the first time. Sessions will be on Saturday 18th May, Sunday 26th May, Saturday 1st June and Sunday 9th June. Starting times will vary

because of the tide. Each session will last about 5 hours, with a short briefing in the clubhouse, and we will try to maximise the time we spend afloat. Most work will be done in the club’s Wayfarers so you will be paired with another trainee and looked after by a qualified RYA dinghy

sailing instructor. For those who are interested there will be an opportunity to sail in a single- hander. All activities will be supervised by a RYA Senior Instructor and a crewed support boat. the cost of each course will be £95 per person. If you are a DYC member (or

plan to be) for 2019 and you are interested in doing one of our courses then get in touch and we will send you full details and an application form. We expect places to fill up quickly so don’t hang about! Email:

steve.scholey@ for details or phone Steve on 07929 751003 if you want a chat first. to do a sail training course at

DYC you need to be a member. Membership starts from just £31 for a cadet/student (under 18), for 18-25 year-old’s it’s £47, adult is £94 and family £141 which covers two adults and their children. For any questions about membership or to join, please contact Membership Secretary Frances Alexander on 01394 385221.

Membership is open to all,

you do not need to own a boat or even know how to sail. Club dinghies can be hired when our safety boats are on patrol and under 18’s can use club boats for free.the Club operates on a self- help basis so members take their turn at some of the club’s many volunteering opportunities; galley duties, manning the safety boats and being Officers of the Day. Parents of cadets are very welcome to help, especially at Lazy Sailing! Our second Winter talk is

on thursday 21st February when our Commodore Graham Seabrook is giving a talk at the club about his recent 3 month trip to Nepal volunteering with Raleigh International. the talk will start at 7.30pm and there will be refreshments. talks are free and non-members are very welcome. For more information about

talks please contact Jane Bradburn;

Woodbridge Art Club

AFtER a very busy and memorable anniversary year in 2018 the art club is taking a break during January whilst the premises are being redeco- rated, inside and out, though some activities will continue. Our outdoor exhibition in Whisstocks Place in August was so successful we may repeat it this summer. the new taster sessions we tried for people who wanted to try their hand at various activities proved so popular we will defi- nitely run some more starting with one for those people who

were unable to get a place on the first course. the year ended in mid Decem- ber with the annual Christmas party which saw the club room packed with members enjoying themselves. the gallery will open again at Easter for our 51st summer exhibition, hung on newly painted walls. We look forward to seeing old friends and wel- coming new visitors. You can keep up with the club news on Facebook www.face-
