|  2013-05-14||  hi
Just a brief reminder - the first races of the inshore series take place this weekend at Hartlepool.
If you would like to take part you need to register with NECRA now if you have not already done so. It would be very helpful to THYC if you could also indicate your Intention to Race (see menu on the LHS)
|  2013-04-25||  Hi folks
Arrangements for THYC Necra regatta have been posted under Sailing Instructions. The actual SIs will be posted as soon as the NOR and class divisions have been finalised by the committee.
|  2013-04-07||  Hi
The next meeting of the NECRA committee is on Fridasay 12 April. One of the agenda items is class structure for 2013. To date class splits (other than white sail) have been defined by boat ratings. Alternatives are being considered eg - light/heavy as defined by (disp/lwl) ratio or (sa/disp) ratio. If you have any views on a prefered method, please contact your NECRA rep as soon as possible.
|  2012-12-13||  Hi
The provisional 2013 race programme has now been posted on the website.
An e-mail has been sent to all on the database in an attempt to check out email addresses as well as update the records. If you have been registered with NECRA in the past 10 years you should have received a copy. If you have not yet replied, please do so!! If you have not had a copy of the e-mail, please contact me with your current e-mail address and I will ensure it is updated on the system.

|  2012-11-30||  Hi Again
Appologies for the delay in sorting out the problems with news and photos. Hopefully the site is now working correctly again!
What has happened since the last post? The AGM, Prizegiving and Open Meeting have been held. Minutes are posted on the site. There is also a collection of photos in the photo gallery.
Over the next few weeks I intend to update the site a little. One alteration will be to dd the facility for crew members to join the database and receive e-mails. I also intend to check out e-mail addresses that i have, as some people appear not to be receiving bulk e-mails. Please bear with me if you get some test posting from the site - it is the only way i can confirm what is actually happening.

|  2009-10-06||  Hi folks,
Sorry for the problems over the last couple of days - our domain host had a catastrophic server failure on Saturday night and everything was lost! It means that the site has been restored from backups that i maintain on my computers.
However, some of the more recent data has been lost and will need to be re-inputted - which will take a little time. Please be patient, the site should be back to normal in a few days
|  2009-09-09||  The Sailing Instructions for the last event of the season (19 September) have been posted.
THYC bar will be open from 5pm - food served until 9pm - live music 9-9.30pm - quiz 9.30-10.30pm - live music until 11pm ish. All welcome!
|  2009-09-03||  You may have noticed a change in the format of the news!
This is to facilitate quicker posting of news items. The system has been re-written to make it easier for the NECRA Secretary to do this usually, rather than pass the information on to the web-master.
|  2009-08-03||  Members may be interested in this forthcoming event at Whitby which preceeds the NECRA weekend. Click on the link here for details [Mini Event Poster (pdf) ]|
|  2009-05-08||  Provisional Sailing Instructions have been posted for the NECRA Regatta at Hartlepool. With free moorings in the marina for competitors, it promises to be a well supported event, weather permitting!|
|  2009-04-19||  Details of the NECRA regatta can be found by clicking on the link here - [NECRA Regatta poster].|
|  2009-04-16||  The next Committee Meeting is Sunday 26 April, so if there is anything you wish to have raised, please see your NECRA rep as soon as possible.
Registration is now open for the 2009 season - early registration benefits everyone - it gives the Secretary more time to get organized and gives other competitors the encouragement to join in. Why not do it now if you have not already registered? What have you got too lose?
|  2009-01-22||  The NECRA Committee met at the weekend and finalised the 2009 programme. The minutes of the meeting and the programme have been posted.
Registrations for the 2009 season are welcomed - remember, the sooner you register, the more likely you are to stimulate others to do the same. Please use the on-line registration form.
|  2009-01-13||  A Happy New Year to all Necra competitors.
The Committee will be meeting on Sunday 18 January, when amongst other things it will confirm the 2008 programme. The Agenda has been posted. If you have any views, get in touch with your reps ASAP!
|  2008-12-17||  Great news, a new Management Committee was formed at the re-convened AGM. Details of the officials are available under the Contacts menu item.
The minutes of the new committee's first meeting have been posted. A draft programme for 2009 has been proposed and is in the minutes.
|  2008-11-08||  The 2008 AGM was adjourned - there were no nominations for Chairman or Treasurer although we have a new Secretary. The meeting will be re-convened after giving clubs and the membership the opportunity to put together a management committee for 2009. Failing this I am open to suggestions as how to proceed. The minutes of the adjourned meeting have been posted.
Both the Prizegiving and adjourned AGM will be held at 8pm on Wednesday 3 December at THYC. A free buffet will follow the meetings. There will only be one item on the agenda of the re-convened AGM- Can NECRA continue as an organisation without a management committee? If you have any interest in NECRA continuing to function as a viable organisation, then this is your last chance to make your views heard. Notice of the meeting will be sent to all names on the NECRA database. Obviously the meeting is open to ANYONE interested in NECRA.
|  2008-10-03||  There has been a nomination for Secretary. It is listed under Nominations 2008.|
|  2008-09-29||  The AGM is to be held on Saturday 4 October, 7.30 in THYC. To date there have been no nominations for the Management Committee. Without a committee it is difficult to see how NECRA can continue - if the membership values NECRA, then something needs to happen!!
The minutes of the last committee meeting have been posted.
|  2008-09-16||  Apologies, despite what it said on 3rd September, the Overall Results (provisional until ratified at meeting on Wednesday) have just been posted!
Dates for your diary, AGM - Saturday 4 October at THYC, Prizegiving - Saturday 25 October at SYC.
|  2008-09-10||  The next Committee Meeting will take place on Wednesdsay 17 September. This will be the last meeting of the current committee before the AGM. The Agenda has been posted in the Minutes of Meetings Section. If you have any points to raise about the results, please contact your rep or e-mail webmaster as soon as possible. They will be ratified at the meeting!|
