If You Want To See What We Get Up To..…
If you want to see what we get up to, please come along to the club on any Sunday afternoon (ideally sometime between 12.30pm and 4pm) during our sailing season which runs from the first Sunday in March until mid December.
We hold three races on Sunday afternoons and during the summer months we also race on Wednesday evenings. Our Wednesday evening sailing is a welcome break in the work week and often has bigger fleets than those on Sunday.
Members can go out for an informal social sail on Sunday afternoons and Wednesday evenings. It’s not compulsory that you have to join in the club racing and at these times there will be patrol boats around plus there’s the benefit of chatting to our members for a ‘bit of advice’. You will find they are always happy to help you.
We also run ‘Friendly Friday’ sessions in the summer months which is the ideal opportunity for any club member, however inexperienced, to just go out and have a sail. One to one instruction can be arranged or just come along and have an informal & relaxed sail.
If you have any queries or want some further specific details then please contact us by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you.
