When will there be safety boat cover?

There will usually be a safety boat on the water during Dinghy or Combined "Open Sail" sessions, Sundowners, Informal Training, and dinghy races.

New in 2021: Informal Training (Online and On the water)

As we slowly come out of lockdown, we are offering informal online training sessions that will cover weather, tides, rules of the road &c... to remind people who already know, or to introduce those who do not before they do training courses. The online sessions will be 40 minutes on a Thursday evening from 7:20pm. We are also happy for other instructors to volunteer to lead on a session - just let me know via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., as I have a list of what each subject area will be for each session.

AFTER EACH SESSION WE OPEN THE MEETING UP TO ALL MEMBERS TO JOIN FOR A SOCIAL CHAT AT 8pm!

We have allocated monthly training sessions into the sailing programme for beginners and intermediate sailors. The aim is to get out on the water as restrictions are eased, and cover the basics, right through to manoeuvres like lee shore landings and man overboard, with sessions in dinghies and cruisers where possible. Restrictions on numbers will reflect the stage we are in the 4 Steps and also the number of boats we have available, although members with their own boats are very welcome to join in. If any instructors and PB drivers want to take part in assisting then let me know. It will be good experience and is not very onerous.
