Get those wet suits out and the covers off the dinghies. This coming Sunday – 25th March we launch the season with our Club Trophy Day – First Race 12.30. Three races in all. Blow the winter blues away and get back on the water.
On Wednesday 28th March we start our very popular Spring Pursuit Series with a 6.40pm start for the Optimists.
Then on Easter Saturday 31st March we are hosting a Joint Open meeting Albacores and Enterprises. Both these classes are popular at Elton and we are expecting lots of home boats on the water to welcome sailors from other clubs. First race 11.00am.
This event is closely followed on Easter Sunday by the start of our Spring Handicap Series. Three races, first race 12.30pm
As always our galley and bar are open to keep up spirits
Welcome back to sailing – Afternoon tea
24th March 2018 4pm
We are holding a welcome back to sailing afternoon tea on Saturday 24th March at 4pm.
There will be sandwiches, cakes, scones and of course tea and coffee. There will be tickets on sale this Wednesday evening in the foyer. There will also be a sign up sheet up on the notice board over the weekend.
Hope to see many people there and support our club. If you can’t make it why not buy a ticket for a family member or a loved one.
Its the last talk tonight a joint effort from our Commodore Peter Finney and our Rope and Training expert Adam Savage. Get down for a fun informative night and a chat about the forthcoming new season.
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).
