Dinghy Park Closure

Following tonight’s message from our Prime Minister. The General Committee have now decided that the time has come to sadly, close the dinghy park.  We are sure you will all understand the reasoning behind this. Other than going to work, shopping, walk or a run, we are to remain at home.

We ask all members to respect this decision and not enter the dinghy park or attempt to go for a sail. The reflection back on the club that we all love would not be favourable. This includes boat maintenance.

We will of course, review the situation constantly and look forward to being back on the water when the situation allows.

Thank you for your co-operation and please stay safe and well.  Keep watching the website and Facebook for updates and info.

Amendment to Winter Series Schedule

Amendment to Race Schedule – Winter Series 2020

The final race on Sunday 22nd March will now consist of 2 races, sailed back to back. Start time remains the same at 10:00.

Race length will be at the RO’s discretion but likely to be shorter than normal.

As we have only had 1 race this winter series, the Sailing Committee decided to make this amendment.

All races will count for the series with no discards as per the Sailing Instructions.

Grass Car Park

For this weekend and possibly for the next week at least, please would you refrain from using the grass car park next to the dinghy park. After the heavy rains recently it’s very wet and unsuitable for use.

Many thanks
