Hi Janddhanger and welcome to the Cruisers Forum.
We've just spent the last year getting our programs back together. We have Keelboats, beach cats and dinghys. We didn't have much going on but we had a strong social secretary to help.
We started a Friday's members night, a bi-weekly keelboat twilight race
programs in dinghy's and we have the largest cat fleet going. We have done flotilla trips to Malaysia
, local Kampong villages and floating fish
Most everything we started for members was cheap
. The twilight races started with a pot luck afterwards and everyone brought a prepared dish or something for the BBQ grill
. Now we have the club caterer do the BBQ and Brewerkz sponsor's a keg. Sometimes we get 70 members at teh twilight BBQ and members come just for the BBQ.
For us it is about the sailing so find some people really, really keen and get a schedule together. People like order. When we started the twilight races we often had 2 boats (ours and the sailing commodore) and now we average 8 with our max being 15 one night.
Throw out some ideas here and we can kick the can around. We sort of sailing area do you have ? What sort of facilities do yiou have? How active is the membership
and how many boats?
I'd be glad to share more of our activites.
