2016 Club Programme now available

The 2016 club programme is now available and can be found on the online calendar and as a pdf document. Both of these can be found by clicking on the Calendar menu.

The programme is similar to the 2015 programme, but through feedback, the start time has been moved back to 10:30 am for Sunday racing.

There are currently a number of open events planned. As well as a the usual Frostbite, we will repeat the Brass Monkey (February), and will run a number of Open Regattas which will also coincide with class specific opens (currently D-Zero and Miracle).

Training will cover two courses for L1/L2, a course for L1, two courses of Junior Training, a course of Power Boat L2 and a course of Seamanship Skills.

Windsurf training is yet to be confirmed.

The Club Night (Mondays) will run in the summer months and is for all members to have a general Sail in the company of others.

The Club Open Day will run as usual and the Big Weekend will take place in July (this can be whatever you want it to be, so please let us know what you’d like to do, or even better, get involved with organizing the event!)

Any comments/suggestions/feedback either through contact forms, the forum or via Facebook.

Get involved and make the Club what you want it to be.

I joined the club in 2010 having just not long completed a RYA L2 training course elsewhere. Spent a year sailing casually on a Saturday before taking the plunge and starting racing in Autumn 2011 and never looked back. I've been a bit of a boat 'tart' considering I haven't been sailing long having owned a Topaz Magno, a Laser Vago, an RS Vareo and lastly a Laser 1. I've had the Laser for over a year which is a bit of a record for me in terms of boat ownership. I have recently joined the Club committee in order to help with running of the club - 'The more you put in, the more you get out'. Having come to sailing later on in life, I'm very keen to look to ways to support and encourage adults to enjoy the sport and to look at ways to bridge the gap from the end of an RYA L2 course to fully confident and competent sailing.
