Racing times and duties on 11 April 2021
Quick reminder: Racing starts at 1430 tomorrow 11 April and will continue around low tides until the end of May.
Volunteers still required for duties in May.
Thanks to everyone who has volunteered so far. We have a full complement until Wednesday 28 April when we will need a race officer and time keeper. In May we have plenty of spaces available for both race officers and safety boat helms and crews. Please remember you must be able to either be in a single household group or share a bubble to do these duties. The latest guidelines from the RYA do show some relaxation. Here is a link to the RYA guidance https://www.rya.org.uk/SiteCollectionDocuments/clubs/RYA%20Sailing%20%26%20Racing%20in%20Mixed%20Households.pdf
Please volunteer to help if you can. Contact me email@example.com
We race every Sunday from April through to November and on Wednesday evenings during the Summer. Our trained volunteer members also run training every Saturday from May to September. Our training programme caters for all ages 6 and above and aims to bring beginners into sailing and introduce you to the wonderful sport of dinghy racing. We have a number of club boats that can be used, free of charge during training and hired out for racing or free sailing for a small fee until, inevitably, you buy you own. This helps you to learn the basics and know what class of dinghy will suit you and is a great way to get into the wonder world of sailing.
Covid regulations allowing, we will be resuming Saturday morning training sessions in May starting with a “have a go day” on 22nd May 2021.
The Club is orientated towards sailing and racing with facilities that include club room with bar and canteen, changing facilities and boat storage. If you are interested in getting involved and experiencing the thrills of dinghy sailing in a competitive, friendly family orientated environment then please come and visit. Our sailors, families and volunteers share a passion for sailing and would be more than happy to share their love of the sport and the Club with you.
On the clubs group you can also see the latest news, photos, pictures and videos.
