Club Rules

To operate smoothly and fairly, the club needs a set of rules and regulations. They're there to ensure everyone's enjoyment and to let all members understand the club's structure and operations.


Members' forum

It's not set in stone, but we normally have two members' forums each year - in March or April following the AGM of a general nature, and in October or November there's a Skippers' Forum which focuses mainly on sailing activities. In these, Members are asked for their opions of ideas put forward by the General Committee and Members are actively encouraged to suggest their own ideas to make Colne Yacht Club a more interesting and vibrant place to be, so as to meet member's expectations.

AGM

The Annual General Meeting is held each March or April. All voting members are welcome to attend. Family membership carries one vote (even though there are two adults in the family).

The AGM is a chance to review the past year; elect the officers for next year; decide on any changes to the club's rules; and see how well the club is doing financially as the treasurer takes us through the figures.

Constitution

The Constitution covers everything from the club's name to how we handle complaints. The current constitution was adopted at the April 2015 AGM. The constitution is below. Please note that the website will carry the most up to date version of the constitution but printed copies may be out of date.
