'Data Protection' and our club
Popups, GDPR, Data Protection... it can be very frustrating at times.
Protecting you as a member is of course extremely important and takes form in a variety of ways, but one area of confusion can often be protecting your personal information like email address, phone number and even your name! Data security is one of the areas the club is responsible for. We regularly get very innocent requests for member's contact information and this is something we can not simply give out, it requires a little patience from your side. Should you require another members details, our process is to ask that member if they are willing to divulge their information to you. Therefore, please understand we are not being awkward, the Data Protection Act is law and it may take a little time to get you the details you require.
Membership Records Update
The Hon. Membership Secretary is requesting by email any changes to your club membership records. It's important we keep our records up-to-date for any club communications.

Remember... "Trip out? Trip in."
There have been some memorable slogans conceived by advertisers and government campaigns over the years. Of course, you know their purpose is to get us to remember goods and services or to get over an important message, so why not have one of our own?
“Trip out? Trip in.” - So if you have a Trip out for a sail or a cruise, remember to always complete and deploy your Trip Slip in the rack, even for the shortest of journeys.
Okay, it's not as catchy as 'Clunk Click Every Trip' but hopefully it can serve as a reminder to post your Trip Slip for every voyage. Just as important, remember to remove your Trip Slip on your return so everyone knows you have arrived back safely.
Important Information Regarding Fraudulent Emails.
Recently, it has been reported that some members are getting emails from last seasons commodore requesting financial help. These emails are fraudulent and are not from anyone connected to the club. The more observant will note that the email address they are sent from is similar to our previous commodore's, but not exactly the same. Regardless of this, it is very important you do not reply or click on any links or attachments, simply delete the email. On a side note, it is always advisable to keep your device software along with virus and malware applications fully up to date.
