Tamesis Club

Teddington Village Fair

Tamesis showed the flag again this year at the Teddington Fair.

It was pretty quiet in the rain at the start, with Chris Pollard  and Steve Katz manning our stand, but the Laser generated loads of interest when the sun came out!

Many thanks to Chris, Steve,  Alan Green, Carolyne Vines and Adrian and Sally Warwick-Haller for helping.

Richmond Magazine visits Tamesis



Jennifer takes the helm

Jennifer Mason, editorial Assistant at The Residents’ Journals, visited Tamesis on Wednesday morning to ‘Try a Sail’, with a view to doing an article for the Richmond Edition. She was taken on the water by Chief Instructor Eric Findlayson, with Commodore Stewart Colley in support, in a Laser 2000. We did not manage to sign her up for membership – she lives over the other side of London, – but she did have a go on the helm, and I think formed a favourable impression of the Club. The visit was arranged by Camilla Colley on behalf of the Development Committee.

Cadets Get Going

The Club buzzed with excitement today as 15 eager Cadets prepared their boats and took to the water after the winter break. Conditions were ideal with bright sunshine and a nice westerly breeze. Three short fun races were run and  one Cadet who was sunning herself on the foredeck of a topper actually went for a swim. Was she completely Mad(die)? After the initial shock, she pronounced the water ‘not too cold at all’

The Cadet Clubroom was sparklingly clean and tidy thanks to the hard work of Falcon and the Wednesday Working Party. Lets hope the Cadets keep it that way!

Welfare Officer Jackie Harris was in attendance as usual, serving delicious tea and home made cakes.





On chilly Easter Saturday, the Cadet team were out in force preparing our fleet of Toppers, Mirrors, Cadets and the Wayfarer for the first session of the year next Saturday 11th April. We were rewarded for our efforts with a slice of  Easter cake baked this morning specially by Cadet Matilda Forbes. De-licious!


News from the Slopes

Commodore and Tamesis friends meet  ex Commodore Peter Mason who was there with his family, at Les Menuires in the three valleys. Just in case you are wondering, they were not actually competing in the World Cup skiing finals just down the road in Meribel last week.
