April 2017 – Show and Tell

With a last-minute cancellation by our planned speaker the April meeting took on an unusual, impromptu flavour. Dave Oakley opened with a song. Frances Miller kicked of a “show and tell” session with a batch of unusual items she and James had found indispensible during their 15-year circumnavigation. They had been the world’s most unsuccessful […]

29th March 2017 – Man is Not Lost – Tom Cunliffe

Back to CNYC for a third time, Tom both celebrated and lamented the astounding developments in navigation over his lifetime. It is to celebrate because knowing effortlessly where you are on the planet to within a few feet is of course remarkable and wonderful. But it has its pitfalls, and he wondered whether one will […]

February 2017 Chris Adams “A Scottish Passion – Mad About the Isles”

Vice Commodore Chris Adams started his talk by proposing to us some guiding principles for sailing in the wild waters of Western Scotland. These principles might, on reflection, be seen as being equally relevant to sailing in general, and perhaps even to life as a whole. So what was he suggesting? Stop when you are […]

Chipping Norton Yacht Club AGM talks 2017 – Danish Greeks and Frisian riddles

First up was Barnaby Scott – B’s talk was entitled “Ελένη- a boat for Greece”  – and he started by telling us of his love of  traditional Greek fishing boats, Caiques (Καΐκια), that he’d so admired when sailing in Greek waters. These colourful and elegant vessels are under threat from an EU regulation that demands, […]

Christmas 2016 – “In the bleak midwinter”

was half the answer to one of the questions in Barnaby Scott’s taxing Christmas quiz – one of the highlights of Chipping Norton Yacht Club’s December gathering. The question was posed with a short piece of printed musical score. Easy enough if you can read music. Not if you can’t. The other half of the […]

November 2016 – The Business of Boating – The Pindar Journey

Andrew Pindar had arrived hot foot from the World Sailing Forum in Valletta, where he’d been engaged in debate about the future of competitive sailing – multihulls v monos, whether design should give racing craft a better chance of subsequent use after laurels are won or lost… Andrew was born by water in the seaside […]

Dick Durham – October 2016 – Confessions of a Cruising Correspondent

Dick opened […]

September 2016 – Duncan Wells – Stress Free Sailing

In September we welcomed Duncan Wells, author, RYA instructor, founder of Westview Sailing, and voice-over expert; voice-over being Duncan’s “proper job”. The instructor in him challenged us on signals with a couple of pictures: a motor-sailing triangle (which was upside down) and a tow cone. We in Chipping Norton Yacht Club can’t be caught out […]

Summer 2016

As this is the time of year when many of us get out onto the water, in summer we have informal get-togethers in local pubs, often the Chequers but once this year in The Boat at Thrupp. So what do members get up to in summer? Many escape to the Mediterranean sunshine; one or two go […]

May 2016 – Phil Levermore

The Determined Sailor of Other People’s Boats CNYC members are a varied lot. Some keep boats in home waters; others, despairing of finding that elusive British summer, prefer sailing in warmer climes. Many, though, prefer not to have a boat at all but get their sailing fix in other people’s boats. As a dedicated Sailor […]

April 2016 – David and Helen Oakley

To Brazil and back What a great evening with the talk given by members David and Helen Oakley, reminding us of what lies at the core of Chipping Norton Yacht Club’s raison d’etre. It has of course been fascinating to hear from yachting greats like Sir Chay Blyth or Mike Golding, but they inhabit a […]

March 2016 – Peter Cardy

Scraping the Bottom – and the Top In March we welcomed Peter Cardy, a man born with salt water in his veins. Peter has been CEO of many organisations – including Macmillan and the Multiple Sclerosis Society – and was onetime Chief Executive of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (responsible for maritime law, search and […]

February 2016 – Barrie Neilson

Mr Flotilla Barrie, we noted, has good knees. We know as he turned up in khaki shorts on that February evening, in Chipping Norton. The chill didn’t seem to have dampened his enthusiasm, though, which bubbled on through his talk. His wife Heidi and the other members of the team of seven he’d brought along […]

January 2016 – AGM

Formal business was quickly concluded. Retiring officers Duncan Wheatley , Chris Adams, Barnaby Scott, Hugh Woodsend and Roger Backhaus were re-elected unopposed. Officers Frances Miller and Phil Levermore are mid-term and continue in post. The financial position is healthy with a small but growing surplus. Membership continues to grow, slowly, and stands at 77 – new members […]

December 2015 – Christmas get-together

We gathered in the new Terrace Room at the Cotswold Club – a good space, nicely decorated for the event – for our celebratory meal. Hugh Woodsend showed and talked us though a summary of the 2015 talks and events, reminding us of how interesting and diverse these were, and we saw the entries for the annual  photo competition, […]

September 2015 – Phil Shayler

Pilotage on the Thames Phil Shayler opened our 2015/2016 dinner and talk programme with Pilotage on the Thames.

[…]

Summer 2015 – BBQ

Weather was unusually wet in Northern Europe where many of us sail, so more of us were around this summer. The summer BBQ, generously hosted by Hugh and Annie Woodsend, drew in an unexpectedly large crowd. It took an enormous amount of organising and preparatory work, so on the night it was relaxed and convivial. Thanks Hugh, Annie […]

June 2015 – Barnaby Scott

A visit to Waywood in Chadlington In June Rear Commodore Barnaby Scott welcomed us to his design studio, furniture workshop and showroom in Chadlington, where, in a corner beside his Computer Numerical Control (CNC) routing machine, lies his 30 foot yacht in build.
