background
BACKGROUND
  • As Commodore, and as a Committee, it is important that we
  • provide periodic feedback to the membership on:

  • what we have actually achieved; and
  • what we have left to do, but importantly;
  • that we do this at times other than just the AGM
  • This presentation sets out to report back to you,
  • the membership, on these points.
  • You are welcome to contact me, the Commodore, or any
  • member of the Committee, on any of the issues raised
  • in this presentation, or indeed, on any other points at all.
  • Suggestions and constructive criticism are always welcome.

Judgement
  • These successes and disappointments need to be judged against the vision from the 2007 AGM and the Business Development Plan from 2006…….

KWSC Mid Term Report

the 2007 vision 1 build improve innovate support sailing at its best sail kielder
The 2007 Vision (1)Build, improve, innovate, support - sailing at its best, sail Kielder.
  • To continue the current club welcoming ethos and family friendly atmosphere;
  • To continue to grow the membership as per the previous business plan with a target of 200 membership units by approx 2010/11
  • To continue to review our sailing programme to keep it fresh and to meet member's needs
  • To continue to use the business plan as a means to develop the club
  • To establish some key measures which we can track to help measure and manage the club's performance

KWSC Mid Term Report

the 2007 vision 2 build improve innovate support sailing at its best sail kielder
The 2007 Vision (2)Build, improve, innovate, support - sailing at its best, sail Kielder.
  • To expand training (sailing, patrol boats and RO) at least in line with our growth and to reduce the burden on individuals in the training team by spreading responsibility
  • To progress Junior sailing to regional squad level for as many juniors as possible
  • To offer more for Juniors than just training
  • To establish a junior forum/committee to elicit the views of our junior membership and to feed this to the full committee - this will potentially replace Tom's role as Junior Rep as he reaches 18!

KWSC Mid Term Report

the 2007 vision 3 build improve innovate support sailing at its best sail kielder
The 2007 Vision (3)Build, improve, innovate, support - sailing at its best, sail Kielder.
  • To develop a strategy to attract more experienced sailors to the club - to be the regional club of choice - as well as to continue to be attractive to novices. (This is NOT poaching please note!)
  • To prepare for overcoming the bottlenecks we will encounter at a membership of 200+ e.g. boat park space, car parking and club house facilities - especially if Tower Knowe develops and we lose access to the bottom car park.
  • To take advantage of any growth opportunities which may present themselves e.g. should part of the Tower Knowe site become available due to redevelopment.

KWSC Mid Term Report

the 2007 vision 4 build improve innovate support sailing at its best sail kielder
The 2007 Vision (4)Build, improve, innovate, support - sailing at its best, sail Kielder.
  • To continue to improve the club's operations - specifically as we grow.
  • To annually seek membership feedback in a consistent way via surveys so we can measure membership feeling
  • To expand our publicity so we have a higher profile in the region
  • To seek funding assistance to assist our growth and specific projects
  • To build on the previous base provided by the outstanding leadership of Alec and Viola to whom I/we are indebted

the longer term
The longer term?
  • Our real potential problems are those of expansion in the next few years to overcome our problems with boat park space, car parking, foreshore space and clubhouse space.
  • Immediately we hope to be able to further develop the land between the club house and the Tower Knowe Jetty
  • We have seeded the possibility of interest in taking over the Tower Knowe site and buildings with both NWA and the Kielder Partnership (KP)
  • We hope this may be recognised in the forthcoming development plan for Kielder being produced by consultants on behalf of the KP
