2017/18 Sailing Program

Our sailing program runs from the first saturday in September, through to mid December, and then from Mid January through to Easter.
Racing normally starts at 2pm (or when the commodore is on the water) with a race of around 1.5 to 2 hours depending on conditions.
Divisions sailed include 16 Foot Skiffs, 125s, Lasers (Full Rig, Radial, 4.7), Sabots (one and two up) and Allboats.
 
Rigging and preparation generally start around midday. Three to four rescue boats will be in use and helpers for these are always welcome.

On Saturday mornings they may also be the Learn To Sail course running (bookings required) and there may be a Squids session for Sabot sailors.
The Squids sessions are for beginners  through to high-level sabot sailors, to improve their sailing skills while having fun, and being taught by highly talented ex-Sabot sailors.

Notice Board

Pre-season Working Bee

The club would like to advise all members that we are holding a working bee at the club on Sunday 26th August, 2018 commencing at 1030hrs. We need to do a general tidy up and prepare for the new season. We will be rigging the new Quest Training Boats and it would excellent if the Assistant Coaches could attend to learn some new rigging skills. If we get a good roll up we should be finished by about 2pm at the very latest  - one hour of your time is all we need. Hope to see you then.
