Welcome to the new ATYC website which is based on the widely used WordPress platform.
The site is still under development so please check back from time to time to see progress.
We will gradually transfer relevant information to this new site but, in the meantime, the “old” website and all its content is still available at https://atyc.org.uk/oldjoomla/
The EA have recently updated their notice re low flows in the non tidal river and impacts on boating. All boaters should take note.
EA Briefing re Low Flows
The following has bern sent to all ATYC Member Clubs contacts today.
I am writing to advise you of the outcome of the ATYC Open Officers Meeting at Windsor on Monday 23rd May which met to discuss possible solutions to the difficulties facing the Association.
In addition to ATYC Officers and Hon VPs the meeting was attended by 8 club members from Brentford CC, Richmond YC, Thames Vintage Boat Club and IYF Rotarians Thames. Several of those attending indicated willingness to assist in supporting roles and two individuals are now considering offering themselves for committee appointments.
Following the meeting, two existing members of the committee, Chris Turner and Andrew Bernstein have now offered to take on responsibilities as joint Acting Chairmen.
The following proposal was submitted to the committee by Chris Turner and seconded by Andrew Bernstein, and has now been unanimously agreed by the committee. :
“That the position of ATYC Chairman be rotated between Andrew Bernstein and Chris Turner both as Acting Chairman until a new Chairman is elected or until the next AGM whichever is the sooner. Such rotation periods to be agreed between both Acting Chairman.”
With the exception of the current secretary, Mike Kolling, and myself who are now standing down, all current members of the committee have confirmed their willingness to remain in post until the AGM in 2023.
It will now, therefore, not be necessary to hold the EGM proposed for late June.
I am pleased that this solution has been agreed and that the Association can now continue under new leadership. I am sure Chris and Andrew will communicate their plans in due course.
There will be an OPEN Officers meeting on Monday 23rd May at The Windsor Yacht Club premises at MDL Marina Windsor. Doors open 7:30pm for 8pm start.
The meeting will discuss proposals for future direction of the Association.
Any member of any ATYC member club who may wish to consider offering their assistance, in any capacity, is invited to attend

See this HM Notice re filming in the Henley reach between 16 and 20 May and likely restrictions to navigation.
Also hearing that moorings in the area of filming activity on both sides of the river have been “bought out” and will not be available during that period.
In preparation for our forthcoming EGM (date to be announced shortly) we have set up a Q&A page where you can ask questions about the Association and its aims and objectives.

The AGM was attended by approx 35 people including Voting Delegates representing 18 member clubs.
No nominations were received from members so it was not possible to elect a new Chairman.
The meeting unanimously agreed the committee proposal to call an Extraordinary General Meeting by the end of June, and the existing committee will remain in post pending the EGM.We will now arrange an Officers meeting in advance of the EGM to fully discuss the future path for the ATYC.
Any member of an ATYC club interested in our work, and, particularly, those willing to consider offering their services to the Association, will be invited to attend. Further information will be circulated to clubs in the coming weeks.
