Sunday Morning Sailing
If you would like to sail but not race, just want to get out on the water for the fun of sailing or if you need some tuition, then come down on a Sunday morning, there will be someone there to help and the patrol boat will be out. We have a few boats you can use if you don’t have your own.
Sunday Morning Racing
Sunday Morning Racing will start at 10am, in order to leave more leisure time on Sunday afternoons, so please to be at the Clubhouse for 9am – there will be refreshments for the sailors after the racing and the bar will be open from 12 noon until 2pm.
Thursday Evening Racing
Thursday Evening Racing will start at 6.30pm – an evening snack will be provided for the sailors and the bar will be open from 6pm – 9pm. There is a WhatsApp Group for those who would like to sail on Thursdays, Sundays or both – please contact Michael Taylor on 07811 444769 to be added to the group.
Watch out for our new Club Clinics – these will be short, informal sessions held in the clubhouse or on the beach to help you get the best from your sailing and your volunteering, e.g. Patrol Boat Familiarisation; Race Hut Officer Guidance; Dinghy Rigging; Launch and Recovery, including the correct and safe use of the winches; How to Safely enjoy Sailing outside of club organised racing times.
SAILING DEVELOPMENT DAYS
This year we have introduced a series of 6 sailing development days into the calendar to encourage more of our club members and their families to get on the water – whether you’re an experienced sailor or a complete beginner.
It will be fun sailing for everyone, on Saturday afternoons, dates below, starting at 1.30pm. We aim to have a variety of single handed and two-handed boats on the water for everyone to have a go under the guidance of some of our more experienced sailors. This will include a fun race later in the afternoon for all ability levels, with prizes on offer for the winners, best capsize etc. It is not designed to be formal sailing training, more an opportunity for club members to gain experience of basic sailing techniques. The bar will be open when we come off the water and there will be hot food served.
So make a note of these dates in your calendar:
In the evening there will be a club social event for everyone, both sailors and non-sailors, with some delicious food from our caterers and drinks from the bar.
Pre-booking is essential. Booking forms will be sent out in advance of each development day.
