Decision to go to Torbay as planned …JW commented that Lyme might be difficult sailing in September as exposed.

JI and EM to look after Torbay

Discussed possibility Europeans 2015 to be held in Europe – EM to investigate,

Website – Requests for changes etc should go through TG at present.

TG reported a lack of content for the site. MO to put a suggested spec for an update on the committee forum for discussion.

Moulds and new boat   - EM to visit possibly with R. Garry to establish the chance of recovering the moulds in working order. A Brightlingsea builder (Graham Eales) is willing to take them and produce a boat.

It was felt that this needed doing before we could advertise so that we had something to offer.

As a side issue , now that the secondhand boat list is empty we need to try to locate and get into circulation as many as possible. JI to write a piece for Y&Y to see if this turns any up.

A.O.B  - KB asked if we should be at Dinghy show. Unanimous yes. Deposit to be paid. KB to action ASAP
