Club Manager:

Sharon’s foray into the world of sailing didn’t take a particularly orthodox route! Her first introduction to dinghy sailing was with Ian at his Mum’s sailing school in Norfolk. Kitted out in all the right gear, she was presented with a fully rigged laser tied to a pontoon, given the briefest of introductions, launched and told “see you at the end of the broad!”. Thankfully, a complete beginners course followed shortly afterwards, then a week surfing down waves in a Wayfarer around the Isle of Wight (Yes, Surfing! Wayfarer! and all the way around!), then crewing a racing yacht, short handed, flat out across the Irish sea from Cork to Lymington.

Once her children started to sail in Oppie Club, Sharon was content as shore support and she helped out with all the Junior Sailing activities at the club for a number of years. Having spent a few years as the Admin & Events Manager for the International Optimist Class association, Sharon can now be found in the Club Office most days or in the boat park, clipboard in hand!


Manager (Membership/Weekend):

Virginia's involvement in sailing came largely through her role as shore support manager for her husband Andrew. Later in 2004 she became a partner in Mayday Chandlery. Through both these roles she developed an intimate understanding of what sailors and their families needed and required to remain happy and content in the enjoyment of their sailing. The natural extension to this was to join the management of the Club where she has been a member for more than twenty five years.

With her customer service experience having spent 21 years travelling the world working for British Airways as cabin crew she takes pride in helping people make the most of their membership.
Once in a blue moon she will go for a sail with her husband but only if the bribe is big enough!
