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. If you want to sail but don't like getting your feet wet then our DF65 model yacht racing may be for you.
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.
Every member should have recently had an email notifying them of the upcoming AGM on Sunday 29th January 2017, starting at 1400. All the relevant documents can be found in the members area. Everybody is welcome to attend.
Can I remind all members that our Prize giving Dinner will be held in the clubhouse on Saturday 28th January 2017. This event is open to all our members NOT just those with prizes to collect.
Commodore Ripon Sailing Club
Our annual prizegiving, dinner and ceilidh takes place on 28 January. A chance to applaud last year's winners, meet up with old friends and make new ones.
The prizegiving will start at 18.30 and the supper will follow. The menu can be found here.
We hope you can come and join us for this annual event.
We will be holding a working party on the weekend of 14 and 15 January in order to get the boat park ready for the 2017 season. Both days start at 10am. The tasks which we are seeking to achieve are:
By popular request we are planning on running a series of Wednesday evening events on a fortnightly basis through January and February with a focus on racing rules and tactics. If you are interested then please get these dates in your diaries. In more detail we are proposing....
Wednesday 25th January, 7:15pm at the clubhouse - 2017-2020 New rules and general rules discussion
For all regular racers, and if you attended the 11th then this is a natural follow on covering the updates to racing rules for 2017 to 2020 along with a discussion on racing rules in general. Again this one will be run by Carol Haines.
Wednesday 8th February, 7:15pm at the clubhouse - Racing Tactics at Ripon
For all regular racers and beginners. There are many reasons why to top racers at the club get where they are and this session will shed some light on the tactics adopted when starting a race and on the windward legs. We will try to make this specific to racing on the lake at Ripon, and hopefully provide some pointers that you can use to improve your own positions during the 2017 season. This session will be hosted by myself and ably assisted by Richard Pryke and Chris Wright, both of whom have many years of racing experience at Ripon and an intimate knowledge of the vagaries of the winds here.
