Following the recent announcements regarding the speed that the new variant of Covid is spreading, we have been considering the best course of action regarding these two events.

We do not want to jeopardize any club member's family get togethers over the next two weeks and we have noted that a number of events, including those at our neighbouring clubs have now been canceled.

Regretfully, we have decided that we will have to cancel both the Children's Party and the Christmas Carols.

I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

It is with deep regret that I have to report the death of a long-standing member and wife of the Hon Secretary, Sue Hann. As a mark of respect, the Ensign will be flown at half-mast.

Sue was a passionate and enthusiastic supporter of the club and the wider Leigh on Sea community. She provided me and other members with encouragement and advice over the years and she will be sorely missed.

Our thoughts, prayers and condolences are with Nick and his family & friends at this time.

Sadly, Doug passed away recently. Doug joined the Leigh on Sea Sailing Club in 1971. Many members will recall the improvements to the cellar and dinghy rack fencing carried out by him. In later years he cruised the catamaran "Mauna Kea" and became Bosun at the Essex Y.C.

Doug Garnier’s funeral is to be held on Friday 08th October 2021, 1340hrs at Southend Crematorium. Family flowers only otherwise donations to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).

Afterwards, James, Doug’s son, would like everyone to join together at the Essex Yacht Club to remember him.
