Wednesday Club

We are keen to help our young sailors progress and enjoy their sailing.  This season Wednesday night racing will have an element of on and off the water coaching for all sailors.  We are keen to encourage parents to get invoved on Wednesday evenings by assisting with running the races - flags/whistles/recording results too. 


If the weather means that we are unable to sail on a Wednesday evening, please still come along, the bar will be open and there will be some coaching or other activity for the sailors.

The racing is usually on the pit but in future weeks there will be sea racing when tides permit.


Wednesday Club is free for our junior members who want to improve their sailing. If you don't have your own boat but would like to take part in Wednesday club you can hire a club topper or oppie for £5 per session.  Please complete a boat hire booking form and arrive in time to get kit out and rig the boat ready for the session.

Every Wednesday from May 2nd to August 29th we sail on the lake or if there is water, on the tide.

There is an opportunity for all members enjoy social sailing programmed in on some Wednesdays (when the tide allows, alongside junior Wednesday Club) A safety boat will be afloat to keep an eye on you and help if required.  

The bar is open each week for parents / members who want to come along and watch the juniors or just enjoy a drink.
