Open Day – June 6th

For an opportunity to see the club and meet some of the members, come down to the Open Day from 11am on June 6th.

There’ll be opportunities to have a go in a club boat with with one of the team and talk to the training team about training courses.

If you wish to experience dinghy sailing please bring a change of clothes and a towel in case you get wet, and wear old soft soled shoes which you don’t mind getting wet.

Those interested in windsurfing will see demonstrations and have the chance of trying it out on a land based simulator.

Whether you’re an experienced sailor looking to join a club or a complete beginner, come down and see what we have to offer.

If you’re already a club member, then come down and join in whether helping out, or simply going for a sail to make a great day.Open day poster2015-page-001

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.
