New Committee and Chair

We would like to announce how the new Committee is now taking on the running of Chesil Sailability. We are delighted to welcome Paul Chick, MBE as the new Chair of the Chesil Sailability Committee. 






The Committee will be meeting monthly, however it may evolve but these changes will provide a very solid foundation to build on.

The Committee will comprise:
Paul Chick (Chair)
Marcus Frith (Vice Chair & Sailing)
Kirsty Lydeard (Secretary)
Mike Clarkson (Treasurer)
Alun Morgan (Safety)
Jane Buckle (Volunteer Co-ordinator)
Steve Collins (Young people)
Hugh de Iongh (Fundraising)

The Trustees currently comprise Hugh de Iongh (Chair), Kirsty Lydeard (Secretary), Mike Clarkson (Treasurer), Marcus Frith, Jane Buckle, Philip Hall and Simon Williams, and Paul Chick will also become a Trustee. As we said, the Board of Trustees will continue to look at the strategic vision as well as carrying out their legal and charitable responsibilities, and some are on the Committee in their operational roles.

By developing the working groups we currently have, these groups will be better placed to concentrate on particular specialist areas of our operations that will continue to improve and evolve our service provision.

Hugh will continue the incredible work he has done as a co-founder and as Chair of the Trustees.  His vision and drive have created and developed Chesil Sailability to become one of the leading groups in the country. His leadership and strategic vision will continue to be seen in his role as Chair of the Trustees as well as our fundraiser lead.

The success of Chesil Sailability has created huge growth; the new Committee will help the founders to continue their hard work while shouldering some of the operational load.

Chesil Sailability has some of the very best volunteers in the Country that are the envy of many organisations; the value volunteers bring to our charity can never be overstated and valued. I am excited to be coming onboard (no pun intended!) and help towards developing a charity that ultimately improves the quality of life for all our members.
