Over the years Emsworth Sailing Club has provided more and more services to its members, from junior race training to a monthly eNewsletter and there are plans for further activities.

This has led to much more information being held by the Club about the membership.

In addition to the basic details for each member - contact, subscription rate and billet details - we now keep records of door access cards, sail training qualification, the duty rota, winch users, race officer qualifications, powerboat qualifications, dinghy instructor qualifications, pool resuscitation course, expiry dates - the list goes on and on ...

This information has been held independently by various Club 'departments' and coordination has become more and more difficult.

The logical solution is to centralise records into a single database which is accessible by all. Therefore during 2012 the Club introduced a new Database (Medusa) to contain this information.  The new, simple to use and highly secure system is accessible via the Members' Area and includes DutyMan, our duty rota system.  It can be accessed from any computer with an internet connection and a browser.

Each ESC member will receive a login name by email and will be asked to provide their personal password and optional additional security word. They can then login to check and update their details which include:

1. Home contact details
a. Address
b. Phone number

2. Personal contact details
a. Email address
b. Mobile phone number
c. Preferred method of contact etc.
d. How you like to be addressed

3. Interests

1.  AOL accounts

AOL users who read their emails with a version of the AOL Desktop earlier than 5.0 (the current version is 9.7) are experiencing a particular problem with emails from Medusa. Unlike most email clients such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail, older versions of AOL Desktop do not identify hyperlinks in incoming emails so the user just sees plain text with nothing to click.

In these cases the hyperlink (starting with https://) must be copied to the address line of your browser to open it. You may cut and paste or retype the link to your browser.

This may also be happening to other email accounts using old email readers. Links should be coloured blue and underlined similar to the email address below. If this is not the case, please use the method outlined above.

If you require any more assistance, please email Mark at DatabaseAdmin@emsworthsc.org.uk

2. Gmail and Googlemail accounts

If you require any more assistance, please email Mark at DatabaseAdmin@emsworthsc.org.uk

3. Non-receipt of verification email

If you are not receiving the verification email (steps 4, 5) and it is not in your spam folder,  it is possible that your email address has been incorrectly recorded on Medusa.  Please email DatabaseAdmin@emsworthsc.org.uk
