SYC recognises and welcomes members or close family providing memorial seats as a fitting, cherished reminder of members past who enjoyed the club and its facilities, and who contributed to its success.  The club requests the following points are observed and followed;

 

  • Any close family and/or members proposing to install a memorial bench dedicated to former members should advise one of the four Flag Officers of their intention before purchasing.
  • Details should include seat size, materials, manufacturer and inscription.  This information will be discussed at General Committee for approval.
  • GC recommends seats are;
    • Manufactured from sustainable teak, or Iroko, or seasoned Oak  sourced supply,
    • Of robust construction suitable for a marine environment,
    • Two or three person’s capacity
  • SYC recognises good quality durable external wooden furniture minimizes maintenance upkeep.
  • The memorial seat is looked upon as a gift to SYC who will take on ownership and maintenance responsibility and associated costs.
  • At the end of the memorial seat’s life SYC will organise disposal and carefully remove any remaining brass plaque/s and will arrange their fitting on the clubhouse overlooking the estuary as a final fitting tribute to the former member.
  • It is intended a club memorial bench will be provided at a future date. Friends and relatives of departed members will be welcomed to contribute to its cost in the form of a fixed brass memorial plaque, (100mm x 35mm) up to 100 characters (subject to agreement by the General Committee) for the sum of £100.
