This Wednesday,14th March, the second of our Wednesday evening talks will feature Adam Savage explaining how to plan your race and get round the race course faster. The holy grail of sailboat racing explained for the benefit of the more experienced and beginners alike. A timely talk considering racing will recommence again on Sunday 25th March.
Adam is coach for the RYA North West RS200 squad.
7,30 pm start and finish by 8.30 so plenty of time for a drink and chat afterwards. Hope to see you all there.
On Saturday 24th March starting at 11.00am all the boats stored in the Boat Shed will be taken out of the Shed. Can all owners please attend on that day and if they cant make it please can they nominate a substitute to take their boat out of the shed and put it back on its berth. Dave Moore and Peter Glynn usually oversee this “event” and help all as required.
The following Tuesday repair begins on the back wall of the shed so it must be cleared of all boats by then.
Within our Sailing Club, March is a very busy month getting the club prepared for another amazing season on and off the water. So we thought we’d carry out a bit of maintenance work on our website.
Welcome to our updated online home.
We would like to thank Dave Smith for his tireless work in keeping the previous site up to date with all of the things which happen across our club and hope the updated site meets everyone’s needs.
If you have any comments about the new site, please feel free to visit our comments page and send us a message … Contact Us
All club members are invited to attend working parties in the first three weekends of March 2018. This is your chance to smarten up the club in readiness for the coming season.
Works parties will take place on Saturday and Sunday of the first three weekends in March namely Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th, Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th , and Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th .
Work will commence at 10.00am and finish at 4.00pm on each day.
A couple of hours from each club member on any day or days would be appreciated. It is great fun and ensures we are ready to go at Easter. Please click on the button below for the list of jobs to be done, and please sign upon the identical list on the Notice Board in the foyer. It will also be helpful if you can bring down tools and materials which suit a particular job.
Please note there will be no sailing on any of these days.
It’s that time of year again! Berthing fees will soon be due for 2018/2019. It has therefore been decided by your Council that berthing fees, which have remained static for two years, will this year increase by a modest amount. Berthing Fees for the 2018/2019 sailing season will be as follow:
Adult Berth – due on 01/02/2018: £48
Junior Berth – due on 01/02/2018: £37
WebCollect is now available to take your payments. Please click on the Web Collect Button below to start payment. Payment by cash and cheque, although possible, incurs a large administrative overhead.
You will need to choose the number of berths you require and the complete the form for each boat. Note that we now require the boat number rather than the sail number. This will help in identifying boats in the boat park. (In 90% of cases these numbers will be the same).
