There are often many ideas and discussions about how we can improve our enjoyment of our club.

Like every other aspect of life today, LSC faces some real challenges, as well as opportunities, going forward.

Every member has good ideas, so this workshop is an opportunity to come together and explain how these many ideas might help.

To start the ball rolling, here are some important issues to concentrate our focus:

  • On the water – as a sailing club, how should we do more of this?
  • Families – how can we make LSC more all-inclusive for a complete family experience?
  • Younger members – to students and younger members who will be running the club in the future, how would you like to see things develop?
  • Skills – we have our own professional and everyday skills.  How can we focus these to help move the club forward?
  • Communications – we communicate through various means – e-news, Facebook etc - within the club. How can we communicate better with the outside world?
  • Revenue – we need to earn more to maintain a safe financial freeboard.  What else should we do?
  • The Future of the Club – wrapping up all of the above, what are your thoughts?

As a Club member, please come along on Saturday 21st, at 10:30 a.m., have your say and help explore and shape our Club’s future. Tea, coffee and lunch will be provided, and we aim to finish by 3pm.
