Helping to get more people sailing, more often
We pride ourselves on being a family oriented sailing club, providing a safe environment for all members of the family, the club has recently invested significantly in refurbishing its facilities to provide welcoming and comfortable shore facilities that complement our unrivalled launching and jetty facilities. Dinghy racing is our passion but we also provide a high standard of instruction and coaching for all ages and abilities.
We welcome new membership enquiries. To make enquiries or find out more About us please browse the website or use the Contact Us tab to choose the appropriate contact for your enquiry.
Working Party This Sunday 9th March from 10.00am We need your help please at the final working party (postponed from last week) to spread road planings around the newly renovated clubhouse, to neaten up the areas which were dug up, and where the workmen's vehicles have been parked. If you can bring a wheelbarrow, a shovel, or a rake, that will be great!
New Members Day this year is the Saturday after the first race day - the 22nd March. If you're new to the club, come along and meet both old and new members in the afternoon, and stay for the Fitting Out Supper in the evening (see the website for how to get tickets). Whether you're a new or established member, this is a great time to talk to the training team about improving your skills, and maybe sign up for a course. It's also a good time to do the little jobs on your boat that you forgot to do over the winter in the cold garage, or chat to the fast sailors in your class about how to tweak your boat to go faster!
The “Buy a Board” Gift Aid initiative has so far raised over £2,000! That's a really encouraging start and will help to buy some of the “nice to have” items that aren't in the budget for the upgrade of the Clubhouse but which will make a difference to the finished project. The decorators are in and the Clubhouse is looking really smart already. We still need to raise more though to "put the icing on the cake," so if you had meant to make a donation but haven't quite got around to it there's still time. As much or as little as you are comfortable with.
