16th April 2021
With the start of a new sailing season coinciding with greater personal freedom re Covid, it seems a perfect time to share our outline EACC plans for 2021 when the sun has been ordered to shine!
WORK PARTIES TO MOVE MUD
An email has been sent to all members requesting help in re-distributing the dredgings on the moorings
Work Parties can be arranged on any day between now and the end of April.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org giving which dates you could be available. Thank you!
EACC PRE-SEASON PUB NIGHT AND QUIZ
CLUB NOTICE BOARD
is regretfully cancelled
It is with a heavy heart that the EACC Committee have decided to cancel Thurne Mouth Open Regatta at the end of May 2021 due to the Covid restrictions and to keep everyone safe.
With no marquee, no bar, limited socialising, no camping etc, we felt that the event would just not be the same and lack its usual magic!
I do hope you can find some other way to enjoy yourself at the end of May and that you will, like all of us, look forward to TMOR 2022 when we promise a great party weekend with great racing for everyone.
LAST ZOOM THURNE TABLE WILL BE THIS FRIDAY 9th APRIL
Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th February
THANK YOU TO ALL MEMBERS WHO TOOK A TURN (SOME MORE THAN ONCE) AT MOWING LAST YEAR.
THE ROTA FOR 2021 IS NOW OPEN FOR ANYONE TO ADD THEIR NAME

It was with the greatest sadness that we received the news last week that broads legend, TMOR vice president, stalwart of the regatta and trustee of our club,
Mollie Howes had died on 10th March 2021.
All our thoughts are very much
with her family.
Her son Paul has sent us this obituary.
Mollie on her 90th Birthday last year
EACC's chosen charity for 2021 is
NORFOLK SCHOOLS SAILING ASSOCIATION
NSSA is a local charity run by volunteers and based on Filby Broad. They provide sail training opportunities for children aged from 8-18. They get no local authority funding and rely on grants, donations and membership fees to cover their operating costs.
In 2019 EACC raised a magnificent
£818.00 for NANSA
(Norfolk And Norwich Scope Association for
teenagers and adults with learning, physical and
complex additional needs or disabilities)
David and Lesley visted NANSA on 10th January and presented a cheque for £818
Thanks to Lesley and Roger Everett
for co-ordinating our efforts
