A Big Thank You

Published by under Club Notices

from Phil Crawford to all those involved on Saturday pm.

To the RIB crew for getting me ashore, and helping Margaret pack the boat away, to Chris and Ivan for “walking” me through the boat park, to Howard, Gary and Lindsay for support roles and to Jack and colleague in their “professional paramedic” roles. I should be OK next year, once I’ve had a pacemaker fitted!

Winter storage 2017/2018

Published by under Club Notices

The club is able to offer members limited storage space for dinghies and catamarans that are not entering the Winter & Icicle Series.

Please refer to the winter storage cost relative to your class of boat  Winter storage rates 2017

and ensure that your application  Dinghy-Catamaran-Winter-Storage-Form

is received by the Club Secretary by Sunday 8th October.

All dinghies in rows I, J, K and M will need to be moved and it is the responsibility of the owner to move his/her boat into a free space immediately after the End of Season Trophy race.

If you plan to race this winter then please complete the Winter/Icicle Series entry form instead of the storage application form.

Dinghy park gate

Published by under Club Notices

A reminder to club members, who use the dinghy park and the grass car park.  Please ensure that the dinghy park gate is locked at the end of the day.  Do it please, even if there are still one or two cars in the car park.  Those leaving after you can open and relock the gate.  Better that, than leaving the gate open all night.

Thanks to all for their help Sunday!

I’d just like to thank all the people that helped on Sunday launching extra support boats and recovering the RIBs following the eventful end of the Sandhopper Nationals! It’s at times like this that the spirit of the club and it’s members really do shine through.

As you probably know all ended well with no injuries and Zeus was recovered quickly that night with minimal damage ( I think). And it even got a mention in the Echo!

RYA Level 2 Powerboat Handling Course

Published by under Club Notices

Six members completed the RYA Level 2 Powerboat Handling Course over the weekend, demonstrating great skill in handling Seasafes 2 and 5.  This adds further resources to our pool of qualified safety boat drivers to support our sailing activities.  Many thanks to those six for volunteering to spend their weekend to benefit their fellow members.  Thanks also to our Instructor Team of Toby Speller and Martin Swindon, aided by Jeremy Sandford, for their continued expertise in teaching our participants.


We hope to run two more courses next year.  Numbers are limited by RYA rules and by the time available to the Team to run these enjoyable sessions.  If you would like to be included on one of these courses, please contact Ken Clarke at “[email protected]“.
