After the race on board Just George with the West Mersea Lifeboat Crew
Great day yesterday at the Maldon Little Ship Club sponsored row in aid of the RNLI! We are immensely proud to announce that we raised a huge £5000 for the RNLI and won a number of awards including best fancy dress (this year was based on the Can Can girls), the Panther Trophy for the most money raised by a single dinghy and first multiple ladies team home.

It was quite chilly, but the crowds cheered us on and so the weather wasn’t an issue.
Thanks to everyone who came along and especially to all our members of the 200 Club and others who sponsored us.
…. and after the race, this is how we relax….!
On Saturday 5th January, we will be taking part in the MLSC annual sponsored row in aid of the RNLI.
We’d love to see lots of you there to cheer us and everyone else along.
The race starts at about 11.00 hours, depending on the tide and will last for about 45 minutes.
Free entry and a great spectacle with lots of rowers, canoeists and paddle-boarders in fancy dress taking part on the river at Maldon Hythe Quay, near the Queens Head and of course the Maldon Little Ship Club.
This month sees not only the weekly draws, but also the fourth quarter Big Oars Draw and our Christmas Even Bigger Oars Draw!
The draws took place at Maldon Little Ship Club on Sunday 16th December at around 3.30pm.
The 4x weekly prize is £43.50 and the winners are: No: 89 Bill Riches, No:97 Jocasta Webb, No:120 John Francis and No: 177 Sylvia Thompson
The Big Oars Draw – 1st prize of £217 – No: 109 Jimmy Byam Shaw, 2nd prize of £87 – No: 22 Alice Syrett and 3rd prize of £66 – No: 165 Jimmy Byam Shaw
The Christmas Even Bigger Oars Draw – 1st prize of £435 – No: 158 Josie Hewitt and 2nd prize of £174 – No: 93 Colin Finch
This is a massive £1153, all down to our members and not forgetting that this same amount is going to the RNLI.
Over this year the 200 Club has paid out to members a total of £4,176 each to members and the RNLI. You may be interested to know that since we started the 200 Club in 2012, it has generated just under £24,000!
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous and Safe New Year and we thank you for your support.

What a fantastic day! Thank you to everyone who supported our 15th annual fun dog show last month including spectators, competitors, stewards, helpers and The Judges! It seems a distant memory now. It was a great day with warm sunshine and blue skies and lots of happy dogs!
We had 70 dogs participate in 200 entries for the 9 classes. As usual, the clear round agility was very popular with all child handlers receiving a rosette.
The canine with the most appealing eyes and the dog the judges would want to take home being the favourite classes with 38 and 36 entries respectively. The judges had such a hard task!
Best in Show – Skye
Our Best in Show was Skye with Tannah Harrington and Reserve Champion was Bella with Phoebe Dewes. The Best Partnership was awarded to The Marshalls with their dogs Matty and Henry. Congratulations to you all!
Bella – Reserve Champion
The total raised from the show was a massive £965, helped along with some very generous donations. A huge heartfelt THANK YOU. This money will be shared between the Sea Change Sailing Trust and towards at least one defibrillator for our village, Heybridge Basin.

This year will be our 15th Fun Dog Show and is to be held on Saturday 15th September in the field adjacent to Daisy Meadow car park, Heybridge Basin from midday.
More details will be posted in the near future, so please keeping looking on the website and Face Book for updates.
Each year we hold a fun dog show in aid of local charities and is normally held in June, but we have decided that September would be a good time and give everyone something to look forward to towards the end of the summer.
