This site is provided for the benefit of EYC members, prospective members and visitors, like the club it is owned by the members. It is under continual development but as the site grows keeping it up to date becomes a more and more time consuming task. We do our best to keep it regularly updated to provide a portal to current up to date information to members. If you have any comments, or better still, have or could write, any articles/information which would be of value or interest to members if published on our site please e-mail webmasterEYC (click for link). You are brought to this page by a click on the "Site Updated" link on the top of every page. Every time we make a change to the site we will add a comment in here to enable site users, should they be interested to see, what has changed (and if we've broken anything let the webmasters know)

In preperation for dynamic updating of Clubnews this page changed to show latest update of Clubnews page as well as latest manual site update described on these pages.

Also reorganisation of photos to more logical sub directories still outstanding


Club news updated more details added for New Years Eve Party. Dynamic updating tests


Template tides script corrected to show just hours and minutes. Yesterdays change that had corrected the colours in templates had mucked up the colours in index page, that corrected. Joining page rebuilt using new template. The slideview pages cannot be built from the standard template because we need the top ot the screen free. On the Folgefonn 70th party page tried putting menu buttons at bottom to see how it looked.


Template modified now displays (hopefully!) todays tides for London Bridge in head of all pages. New template incorporates a 'style sheet' to ensure a consitent look to text all across the site. Noticed that different sizes of text displayed in slightly different colours- corrected.
