    Successful First Aid course

    Despite the clubhouse being closed for refurbishment, 12 members took part in a First Aid course last Saturday, 19 January. As you can see they suffered a range of severe injuries during the day! The course included practical CPR using dummies and a demonstration of using a defibrillator - this generated lively discussion of the use of this kit in sailing clubs. It was great to see four junior members getting their certificates in preparation

    Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year to all members and friends of the club. The January Newsletter ("E-Info") will be out soon, but in the meantime don't forget that Sunday sailing carries on throughout January and February. There are no races scheduled, but informal sailing may take place if conditions are suitable and members want to go sailing. There is no box team or safety boat cover provided, so sailors have to fend for themselves but the changing

    Open Day Sunday 22nd April

    Our Open Day was a fantastic event with nearly 200 visitors who came along to try sailing and see what we offer. Thanks for all the ideas for names for new club boats. After considering all the suggestions - the Wayfarer will be "Bourne Again", suggested by Phil Warner, long-standing member and ex-Training Principal, and RS Feva number 4 will be "Maid Marian" to accompany no.3 "Little John" (several people suggested this one!). We're pleased

A Topper Tour from Alan Markham was the main focus, mostly to learn the differences about the ........
