CQBHA Needs Cruise Leaders for 2019 Season

Are you a potential cruise leader for the Cobbs Quay Bertholders Association?

As you will all know cruising in company has become a key part of the opportunities that Cobbs Quay Bertholders Association (CQBHA) offers to our members.  For a very long time now Kevin Butler has devised, planned and led a wide variety of cruises on both sides of the Channel.  As you might imagine this has involved many years of commitment on Kevin’s part and the time has come to take a well-earned rest.  As a result Kevin has decided to step down from the role of cruise leader after this season.  The Association owes Kevin a big vote of thanks for all his efforts over the years organising and running some great cruises and he will be hard to replace.

So, we are looking for someone – or ideally 2 or even 3 people – who are willing to help book, plan, organise and lead cruises for the 2019 season and beyond as part of a team.  The first thing to be clear about is that the level of commitment expected will only be as much as the new cruise leaders feel able to give – no more!  We will not ask too much of you!!  We already have one willing volunteer so you won’t be on your own!!

Kevin has already booked potential space for a cruise at the beginning of the season to Shepard’s Wharf and an end of season trip to Weymouth – if those are cruises you wanted to pick up on.  Kevin has also been clear that he will be on hand to offer any assistance that you may need – and may even go on a few cruises.

If you feel you can help the Association in this way please e mail me at chairman@cqbha.org initially and I will put you in touch with Kevin to talk over what is needed.  Lastly I would ask you not to be shy or afraid to offer your services.  We are extremely keen to continue to provide cruises in company as part of joining CQBHA and we will work with you to make sure you are confident in what to do.  Maybe even try it for one cruise next year and see how it goes?

Thank you.  I look forward to hearing from you.
