Our three priorities
Our Three Priorities

  • Sailing – we must not forget our primary raison d’etre is to help people get and stay on the water. All other objectives should support this, directly or indirectly.

  • Socialising – get to know your fellow sailors on and off the water

  • Supporting – a framework to help our varied Groups to flourish


  • Develop a full programme of practice, training and race days, well supported by a volunteer rota system of organisers – who are not penalised when organising

  • Racing representative and Group Leaders have the right to attend Committee meetings as necessary

  • SAMM arrange Civil Liability cover and FVRM/RYA membership for legality

  • Encourage new and current non SAMM members to participate which means we need to re-address SAMM Membership

SAMM Membership

  • Retain current grades with voting rights and added benefits for non Group members

  • Consider Group fee collection (John Curtis proposal) and Group discount for early joining, dependent on numbers eg. > 20 - 15%, > 30 – 20%

  • Seek additional benefits for SAMM members to make a joining fee a viable, future option


  • A vibrant social programme can underpin our sailing activities, give opportunities to discuss sailing issues and be a source of extra funding for SAMM and its Groups if well supported.

  • SAMM arrange a minimum of 2 main events per year, Groups to assist (see next slide) and arrange their own and invite non-Group members as and when they see fit eg. To make event viable.


  • Our meetings have been mainly business with limited social opportunity. Change to:

  • Business meetings proposed to be held in Jan/Mar/May/Jul/Sep/Nov

  • Social meetings/visits to be held in even months with themes chosen by organising Group eg Menu del Dia, coach trip, beach party, walk, Caldero Day, theatre trip

  • Committee meetings in even months, odd months as required. Group Leader may ask to attend to raise an issue or submit and discuss a proposal


  • Raise SAMM and Group’s profile and PR within local community

  • Acquire SAMM assets that give benefit to the majority of our Groups . Final decision on asset to be acquired made by majority vote of Committee and all Group Leaders

  • Search for a 2nd Home ongoing, possibly on a step by step basis starting with storage for small number of boats

  • Continue start up/ improvement loans to Groups, extend to shared boat ownership (SAMM/Group) to give more opportunities of “trial sails” by potential new sailors

  • Mutually supportive links to other expat organisations to extend social network and to attract new members
