9.3

 

Proposal by the Management Committee to purchase an additional rescue craft costing circa £12,000. Paul Palmer explained the benefits and versatility of a vessel such as a Jet Ski.  A Jet Ski would only require one or two people to launch it and could be combined with a stretcher as an additional safety benefit. Two members of PYC have already been trained and have the RYA Personal Watercraft Certificate of Proficiency.

Marion Page suggested that a sticker/sign be put on the Jet Ski to indicate that it is a safety craft and not for pleasure.

 

The proposal was agreed by the Membership present with two against.

Agreed by the Membership present.

 

The Management Committee agreed that approval should be sought of the Membership to trial a new fee collection system that incorporates some recognition of those that volunteer for the Club. 

One member felt it would be unfair for older members that had previously contributed, but not now able to.  Marion Page felt that there was insufficient information available about the proposal to hold a for or against vote.  Suggestion that a trial be carried out and reported back at the next AGM.

               AUDITOR'S REPORT TO THE MEMBERS OF PAGHAM YACHT CLUB

                ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

        

         I HAVE AUDITED THE ATTACHED INCOME AND EXPENDITURE ACCOUNT AND THE

         BALANCE SHEET WHICH HAVE BEEN PREPARED FROM THE BOOKS AND

         RECORDS OF THE CLUB IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPROVED AUDITING STANDARDS.

 

         IN COMMON WITH MANY SIMILAR ORGANISATIONS, THE CLUB'S SYSTEMS OF

         CONTROL OVER INCOME DO NOT PERMIT THE INDEPENDENT CONFIRMATION OF

         THE COMPLETENESS OF THE ACCOUNTING RECORDS, SO I AM UNABLE TO GIVE

         AN OPINION AS REGARDS BAR AND SOCIAL INCOME.

 

         DURING THE YEAR, MEMBERSHIP FEES WERE RECEIVED AMOUNTING TO £200

         IN RESPECT OF PADDLERS, A MEMBERSHIP CLASS WHICH DOES NOT EXIST

         UNDER THE RULES.THESE HAVE BEEN INCLUDED IN THE ACCOUNTS AS

         CREDITORS PENDING THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A NEW CLASS OF MEMBERSHIP

         AT THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING.

 

 

         SUBJECT TO THE ABOVE, IN MY  OPINION THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS GIVE A

         TRUE AND FAIR VIEW OF THE STATE OF THE CLUB'S AFFAIRS AT 31ST AUGUST

         2022 AND ITS EXCESS OF INCOME OVER EXPENDITURE FOR THE YEAR THEN

         ENDED.

Attachment 5 - Item 7

In principle, a proposal is sought to purchase the Car/Boat Park, extending to roughly 2257 sq. m plus another 562 sq. m from Pagham Beach Holdings Ltd for the sum of £150,000 excluding vat for the freehold, plus payment of their legal fees for the transfer.

We currently have a renewable lease this land for 4 x £1,000 consisting of £875 and £125 (£,4000) a year and the rent has been due for revision in January this year which has been postponed pending our decision to purchase. A portion of this land by the pumping station - where planning permission has been sought for three bungalows, is leased by us on a Deed of Licence – the £125 per quarter. This could potentially, although now unlikely, be withdrawn from our use without any notice.

Initially, the 2257 sq m was offered for sale but now, the possibility of purchasing the entire park can be looked at.

Although the rent we pay may look cheap, we are a sitting tenant since 1968, the land is below sea level and has no other commercial use. It cannot be used as a public car-park, camp site and no permanent buildings can be constructed on it. We are a reliable source of income and, if we choose to buy, a good source of revenue.

This would also allow any investment we make to the Park to be worthwhile for PYC. Attachment 12 refers.

The Management Committee would like the Membership to approve negotiations to continue on their behalf and to call an EGM if a suitable figure can be agreed.

 

Attachment 6 - Item 8

In principle, a proposal to purchase the Beach Front area measuring 50’ x 60’ from Pagham Beach Holdings Ltd for the sum of £12,500 (excluding vat) plus payment of their legal fees for Transfer.

This area is designated as part of Pagham Harbour Site of Special Scientific Interest and is therefore subject to restrictions imposed by National England and would be subject to Covenants concerning the use of the land which they and PBH would enforce.

The SSSI has been in force since 30/09/1986 and most of the type of operations that are restricted include cultivation, grazing, reclamation of land from sea, freshwater fishery management and other activities that we will not be involved in. The one item that would have the greater effect on us is our fishermen and sailors working within the guidelines set out in this and all of the occasions when their catch has been examined it has been without any problems.

Site name: Pagham Harbour, West Sussex OLD100 0620 refers.

Presently, please be aware that we own the main Pagham Yacht Club building and the slipway to the launch side of the building only up to the end of our premises. Apart from this slipway and the associated entrance from West Front Road, the remaining suitable access is only the small walkway immediately outside the beach door - approximately 3ft wide of a specially requested concrete disability access.

The foreshore, plus the walkway from West Front Road used by members of the public to the start of the beach, despite it being tarmacked at some stage by Pagham Parish Council, is owned by PBH. The only change is where our premises stop and the beach begins, where Pagham Parish Council have taken control of the land up to the high tide line to include the memorial stone.

As PBH have control over the foreshore land that we use, any alterations to seating or the introduction of a marquee or any other change of use, for example putting any temporary barriers up, we must have their permission.

More importantly, we also run mains power cables under the land in question to operate our winches, as well as the siting of the winches and, more essentially, the access to our boat slipway – and a fair proportion of it is also on their land. This again is open to a concession from PBH.

We currently have an agreement in our licence with Arun, permitted by PBH to sell alcohol on this section of the beach. We also hold a Beach Concession Licence from PBH allowing us the right to sell ice-cream, soft drinks and such foods as to be agreed in Schedule 1 for £250 pa. What food was not declared on the licence but was assumed to be hamburgers, hot-dogs, crisps etc. and covers the beach area in front of the bungalows from the Harbour Road to East Front Road, forming the Pagham Beach Estate up to High Water Mark. We have been paying for this for decades but, have not used it for several years, mostly due to Covid and, in the past, only used it to sell hamburgers and hot-dogs in front of the Club for charity events. If we were to purchase the land this can be cancelled with the associated cost.

There are other items such as the erection of sea defences or coast protection works, that may work in our favour if we are asked by Arun to undertake works on their behalf. There are others, which would in effect protect us from any work that Arun asks us to do as the SSSI is in place to prevent any individual person, business or Club breeching the rules that they have enforced for the past 20 plus years. The extent of the area covered by the SSSI has been extended in recent years and now covers up to the end of East Front Road at Pagham.

There are certain items still open for discussion with PBH as we have been told that this land is subject to Covenants which we want them to vary before we progress.

 

Attachment 7 - Item 9

 

To install Solar panels on PYC roof for the cost of £19,000 (excluding vat). As part of the 5 Year Plan and against a backdrop of increasing energy prices the committee engaged with a specialist Reusable Energy Company [EE-Renewables] to assess ways to better manage our increasing energy costs. The club is in what is reported to be the sunniest place in the UK – thanks to its record-high levels of sunshine, which is more than anywhere else in the country. So, adopting a clean 5.46 kw solar energy solution producing circa 5,602kWh is deemed the best option. The RYA report that many sailing clubs are investing in solar energy systems.  Not only does adopting a solar solution help manage the club’s overall energy costs, but also improves the club environmental credentials, which align with the RYA GreenBlue programme.  The proposed solar solution would see 14 Solar panels affixed to the clubhouse pitched roof, with storage batteries and the solar management hardware located in the boatshed.  The cost benefits for installing Solar Power/Energy will bring cheaper electric costs, ability to store energy in batteries for drawdown at peak times, in addition the ability to sell surplus electricity to the National Grid. 

The cost of the installation today is in the region of £16k, but with rising prices a precautionary 15% contingency amount has been built in making the total budget £19k. This includes full installation, a 12-year product warranty, ongoing service support and 25 Year Linear Performance Warranty. Based on the club’s energy usage (prior to the rate increases that came into effect in October) the system would produce an annual saving in excess of £1,100. Based on these rates the cost of this investment would be written down over approximately 10 - 12 years.  Although, when considering the energy increases that have come into effect since October, and given the high cost of energy is likely to persist for the foreseeable future, the payback of this investment is likely to be less than 10 years.

 

Attachment 8 - Item 10

 

To change the title Child Protection Co-Ordination to Safeguarding & Welfare Officer in line with RYA recommendations and to change any references in the Rules accordingly. This will also involve changes to the duties of the role that provides guidance on Safeguarding adults (or other vulnerable groups) as well as children and youths within the Club.

 

Attachment 9 - Item 11

 

To approve the Building Project comprising Architect Fees (Prepare Initial Concept Drawings for club Consultation purposes and any associated fees). Sub Total: up to £5,000

As part of the Five-Year Plan process, one of the commitments has been to look at potential options to improve the Club facilities. To do this the Club needs base information about the condition of the building which includes an asbestos survey and a full measured survey. These are being undertaken at the moment. Over the course of the next year, and following an assessment of the condition survey, there will follow a shortlist of possible options regarding the Club facilities. Full consultation with Club members will follow.  

 

Looking ahead to next year we could be in a position to take plans forward which, depending on the preferred option, might entail engagement with Arun District Council. It seems likely this would necessitate the use of plan drawers or architects, as part of the discussions with Arun DC and it is likely that a suite of professional reports might also need to be commissioned (for example Flood Risk Assessment, Renewables Plan, Building Regulation approval, Nature Conservation Study and others). The estimated £5k contingency exceeds the amount the Committee can spend under Rule 36 and therefore approval at a Members Meeting (AGM) is necessary. At this stage it is not anticipated that the full £5k will be required, it is an estimated amount, but needed to ensure fluidity in the process.         

Attachment 10 – Item 12

 

To improve utilisation, safety, and security in the Car/Boat Park by installing electrical points and water access to each Boat storage location and new fencing. Works to be completed in two phases at costs circa £8,640 and £7,360 - Sub Total: £16,000.

Phase 1: the installation of armoured cable to security camera at far end of boat park with two hook-up points for small power usage, £600 material cost and the installation of a 25mm plastic water main from a container with three taps for boat cleaning purposes only, £250 materials. Labour will be provided by members 

Major works are the installation of a new security fence to segregate boat pound and car park at £4890 and installation of new security fence from container number 2 with two gates to house recovery ribs. Cost of this will be £2150. Associated back fill trenches at £250 and new signage to boat park with a provisional cost of £500.

Phase 2: the installation of a green roof system to container number 1 with rainwater goods to a harvesting tank. Provisional cost £4000. A water harvesting tank alongside container number 1 with pump will also need to be installed - provisional cost £1700.

Further works are the installation of railway sleepers to promote chevron parking painted white and solar powered lighting with censors to help visibility after dusk. £800. No cost for labour again.

 

Attachment 11 – Item 15

 

Eddie Chantry

My wife and I joined PYC over 40 years ago following 10 years at Aldwick and Pagham Sea Scouts as a scout leader. I first served on a Committee as what was then known as the Wine Committee Chairman, now known as Bar Manager, before becoming Commodore for 4 years. 

I saw the need for young people to learn to sail and canoe in a safe environment so

co-founded Pagham Lagoon Sailing with Barnaby Willmott. After 10 years, I stood down from PLS to allow me to give more time for PYC.

I have served as Commodore on five occasions and I have served on various Committees under a total of 10 Commodores for nearly half of my membership. With the help of my wife Ingrid, we have given much time and hard work, but had so much fun both as a couple and as a family.

I have been involved in Club life and all its changes over the years and remain positive for the future. I feel I can still contribute to PYC in the role of an active Vice President, as I have seen in other Clubs, promoting the wonderful place that we can all call ours. I have served as a Vice President for the past year and I would be honoured to serve for a further year.

 

Attachment 12 – Item 17

 

Subscriptions for 2022-23

Membership and boat park fees do not increase every year but, when they do, the increase has been in line with the latest National Consumer Price Inflation Index. The Index suggests there has been an increase in inflation of 10.1% for the 12 months up to September 2022. Whilst our energy bills will hopefully continue to fall, food and drink went up 14.6% in the same September period. Therefore, the costs of running the Club have increased leading to a need to increase Club fees.

 

Our Club Rules allow an increase subject to the approval of a Members Meeting (AGM) but should be at a level “...that will not pose a significant obstacle to people participating {in the Club}”. Historically, the Management Committee has had the option to provide discounts for Single Parent families, for Students living away from home (more than 50 miles from the club).

 

Please see revised Membership and Boat Park Fees 2023 attached at the end as a landscape document.

Attachment 14 – Commodore’s Address

 

Dear Members,

 

Where has this year gone? It has positively flown past but, what a year it has been!

More importantly the Coronavirus is now at the point that we are living with it, all restrictions lifted and, although we know we must not become complacent, we have beaten it. We are made of sterner stuff on the coast and with the aid of booster jabs, normality is finally with us.

 

The sailing season has been exceptional with consistently good numbers on the water, from our experienced sailors in the Cats and the Lasers to the youth members and the novice sailors in the slow fleet. We have seen the youth numbers swell with a notable competitive edge, with the adult novice Pico sailor’s getting better and better as the weeks have passed.

A special mention to Guy Hickman, Simon ‘Shorty’ Orde, and Nick “The Tash” Cook who have really supported, encouraged, and mentored the youth and novice sailors. Thank you to Nick who has been ever present with Lady Margret, the Club Wayfarer, taking out PYC members and prospective members for taster sessions. This is such an important experience for some.

Of course, the on-water activity could not happen without the support team in the background and RC Sailing Kevin Mason has been ever present over the weekends, putting in many, many hours to ensure the racing or the free sailing goes ahead. Some minor tweaks this year from him have reaped the benefits and have encouraged sailors to take to the water.

Keeping the fleet on the water is a challenging task as it has been proved with our safety vessels. The new Bosun Bailey has really stepped up to the plate, supporting RC Sailing by maintaining the RIB’s and Jet Ski as well as the RIB helms and crews have also really picked up this year. This consistency has allowed RC Sailing more time off the water to plan. Well done to all!

The Race Officer team have set some very challenging and exciting courses throughout the year and this was not lost on Bognor Sailing Club who hosted the annual Tythe Barn race. They invited two race officers from PYC to assist on their bridge for the race. Great to share our expertise.

This year we again held the annual Mike Cole RNLI memorial race, with the prizes provided and presented by Lena Cole. A big thank you to Lena for allowing us to share and enjoy this event.

We entered the Bart’s Bash memorial weekend in memory of Andrew ‘Bart’ Simpson and his foundation set up in his memory. Well done to everyone who supported the weekend, linking in again this year with Pagham Lagoon Sailing to raise funds for this amazing event. Great fun again.

This year we also hosted the Shearwater Nationals, it was great to see them back again for their national competition. It was an amazing week of racing, comradery, and socialising.

This was a massive team effort, the organisational skills of Andy Grout are legendary, and he didn’t disappoint us. Everything ran smoothly and to plan and the team effort put in over this week was so impressive with RC Social & Fundraising Sue Briggs and her great team providing excellent meals for the Shearwater’s and breakfasts for the PYC teams.

There are still so many to mention, from the Winchman, Bar team, Galley team, Sailing Support team…...you know who you are but, a warm thank you from me.

 

The RC Angling has hit the ground running, so fast Linford Christie would struggle to keep up with him. Paul Cooper, aided and abetted by George Snell have worked hard in the background to get the Dingy and Beach competitions moving despite many having to be cancelled due to the weather not being kind this year.

That said, they have worked hard to start up Youth fishing with several taster events that were very well attended both on the beach and the training room. These taught the youth to make fishing rigs and the George Snell magic spell for catching fish! Well done to Paul and George and all those members who donated equipment to allow this to happen.

One area of growth is the ‘Paddlers’. This is down to the enthusiasm of John Donoghue who took over the reins and with some subtle changes and, moving to a Wednesday, it has really taken off with big numbers taking to the water. We were blessed with some good weather that encouraged members of all ages onto the water.

Again, the assistance of safety cover to allow everyone onto the water, the Jet Ski came into its own along with the ever-present Dave Gosnell, with John D providing the beach cover with the famous saying by a reporter on the aircraft carrier during the Falklands war – “I counted them all out, and I counted them all back again”. Well done to both John and Dave.

Also, in its infancy now but gaining momentum, is the Snorkelling club on a Thursday during the summer months. The driving force behind this is Dave Gosnell who has brought his own brand of organisational and safety to this activity. He has brought in lots of kit from his old dive club that is available to purchase at fantastic prices so do take advantage of this.

I have tried this; it is great fun. Look out for this next year and come and try it as you will not be disappointed.

On the social side, what can I say? RC Social & Fundraising Sue Briggs has invested so much time this year in PYC that Clive is looking to move into the Club. In all my time at the club I have never been entertained so much as I have this year.

The bands and entertainment have been exceptional; the quality of the acts from solo singers to rock bands, soul bands to our own members band, Hi Five, we have had a feast of entertainment.

Friday nights are now an institution with our own Keith Lawrie hosting ‘Play Your Cards Right’, ‘Take Your Pick’ and now ‘Blankety Blank’. Then of course we have had the legendary, ‘This is Your Life’ red book event for members birthdays. They are priceless, and I will never see a one-man tent in the same light again. I’m sorry if you don’t know what I mean – you have to have been there!

The fund-raising events for the RNLI, McMillan Cancer and Barts Bash have raised thousands of pounds for those charities. Stunning effort by Sue and her team.

The Sunday raffle has grown not just in numbers of tickets sold, but the prizes are now a complete meal, quite literally. What a great idea from Carole K and her team! Again, lots of effort put into the prizes and the presentation so, another well done to Carole and the team.

It really has been a full-on year playing catch-up after Covid and the Management Committee has been working hard in the background keeping the Club running efficiently and effectively on your behalf. We have been paid particular attention to the recruitment of new members and I am pleased to let you know that we are approaching the 400 members mark now. This has been due to the work carried out towards the sailing side of the membership to increase numbers and promote what a great Club we have. Your Membership Secretary, Andy Day has worked tirelessly to further this, and what a great job he has done.

On the Club development side, the five-year plan is, and will always be a key part of the process to ensure that we have firm foundations on which to build. The plans we currently have are, in my view, the most complete and professionally put together the Club has ever seen. This is due to the dedication and professionalism put in by RC Planning, Bob Newman.

The planning meetings have been prominent throughout the year, very ably chaired and driven by Bob and, you will notice on the agenda for the AGM, there are items to be discussed and agreed by the membership that will drive the Club forward. This preparation work has required a great deal of effort by Bob and the Planning Committee, sanctioned by the main Management Committee for approval to bring before you at the AGM for discussion and where we are seeking your approval to proceed.

Some of these are big projects and, be aware will be ongoing for several years. This is where we needed a strong and progressive five-year plan. The Management Committee are pleased to present this to you.

Bob is standing down this year, his skills and commitment have put the PYC in a great position with a legacy of a strong plan. I would like to express my thanks to Bob for his work.

You will have noticed some changes around the Club; the work to improve the snug area, the ongoing maintenance and the unseen work with security and fire safety systems, the new garage doors for the RIB shed, additions for the security fences in the Boat Park and new storage containers. These are all things that have been planned, costed and implemented on your behalf.

An integral part of this work falls on the RC Buildings, Paul Haynes. He is standing down this year and I would like to express my appreciation to him. Those of you that have held this post previously will know what a thankless task this is and will understand the effort that goes into the role.

You may not have noticed that the Boat Park and Club house are now very well covered with security cameras. We have installed a web cam on the beach side of the clubhouse that is available to view through the PYC website by anyone. We now have a CCTV policy in line with requirements set out by the Biometrics and Surveillance Commissioner. This is all unseen work carried out by our technical guru Kevin ‘Bomber’ Harris and I would like to say a massive thank you to him on behalf of the Management Committee and membership for his unseen work and commitment. A big Thank You Bomber!

I mentioned in last years’ address that the plans for PYC would be based upon your ideas and I wanted you to know that the survey sent out was very useful in this context. I am planning to run the same exercise again this year as, I have said, this is a rolling five-year plan.

Your views and suggestions are very important as this is your Club. When the survey goes out, please be aware that I will be on your case to complete it and, if you have a view or a suggestion, do come forward as the Management Committee will always welcome your views. That is where good ideas come from!

I have mentioned the Planning sub-committee and the work they do on your behalf; I would also like to bring to your attention two other sub-committees that sit and work on your behalf.

There is a newly formed Bar committee, chaired by Kieran ‘Scotty’ Smith. His team include the cellar/pipe cleaning team and members who have volunteered to assist in all areas relating to the bar. If you have any ideas, please do let Scotty know.

There is a newly formed Finance sub-committee chaired by your Treasurer, Dave Gosnell. This is a result of the five-year plan that recommended a finance sub-committee to look at the finances of PYC to plan the expenditure for the future to ensure your funds are invested and spent wisely.

All the sub committees report to the main Management Committee.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all members of the Management Committee for the support they have given me this year as much of their work goes unseen. Please respect their position and commitment as they are all volunteers.

 

As previously mentioned, there are Management Committee members standing down this year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their service to the club and show my appreciation to Bob Newman (RC Planning), Paul Haines (RC Buildings) and to Sylvie Bentley as Assistant Secretary for her skills in trying to follow often brisk and unconnected discussions at meetings and producing excellent minutes.

Another post holder standing down is one of our Trustees Ian Gibbs. Ian has served on many committees, holding many RC roles at PYC and also as a trustee. I would like to take this opportunity on behalf to the Club to thank him for his commitment over the years to PYC and for the advice he has given me as Commodore. Thank you and good luck for the future Ian. We look forward to seeing you more often in the near future.

We are now formalising the process to replace Ian; I asked the remaining Trustees to nominate and approve a replacement. The volunteer that had come forward has now been formally recommended by the Trustees, was taken to the Management Committee meeting on 03/11/2022 and Mick Bentley was unanimously approved as a Trustee for PYC. The Hon Sec is dealing with the legal side of the appointment with the Club solicitor.

 

In my final address to the membership, I wish to thank you for your support during this past last year. I look forward to your continued support during next year and end with a plea. Our Club is an amazing place to belong to and there are great Committee members, sailors, anglers, youth and social members.

We are all volunteers who have signed up to commit our time to the Club and, we can only continue down this route if you honour that commitment. Ask yourself one question; have I hand on heart, fulfilled that commitment? If you have, then that’s great. If you have not, please ensure you do it this year and share the burden so we can all enjoy PYC for the fantastic place that it is.

 

With all the best wishes,

 

 

Paul Palmer

Commodore

Notes:

 

  1. Pro-rata rates do not apply to renewals
  2. An increase in membership subscriptions and boat park fees of 10% is proposed for season 1st March 2023 to 28th February 2024. The increase will exclude Youth Member fees which will remain the same as 2022/23
  3. According to the latest National Consumer Price Inflation Index, there has been an increase in the 12 months up to September 2022 of 10.1%. Whilst our energy will hopefully continue to fall, food and drink went up 14.6% in the same September period. Therefore, the costs of running the Club has increased leading to a need to increase our membership fees. Historically we have always increased fees in line with the Consumer Price Inflation Index and on occasions not increased fees at all.
