Richmond Magazine visits Tamesis

  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.

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.

Tamesis AGM 2015

Following a challenging morning’s racing in a blustery south westerly taking us on a beat up past the island against a strong stream, some fifty Tamesis members gathered for the AGM on Sunday 22nd February after a good lunch. The Commodore welcomed members and reviewed the progress of the club over the year – both the positive – for example the great new website and the new training boats, a Wayfarer and four Toppers, and the sad – the passing of members of many decades standing, Rosemary Green and Club Hon Architect and Captain Phil England. Phil’s heritage lives on
