Sailing Cancelled – Tomorrow 23rd Oct
Its a shame but due to the strong wind forecast for tomorrow morning (easterly 6/7) its been decided to cancel. This brings our main sailing season to an end. Although we’ve been a bit unlucky with the last races of the Condor series, overall its been a fantastic season, with plenty of great sailing !
Whilst the main season is over there are still plenty of club activities to look forward to including the annual dinner, our popular winter training squads and some great courses to brush up your knowledge….
Annual Dinner and Prize Giving
Our main social event of the year and definitely an evening not to be missed. Once again we’ll be celebrating in style another fantastic year at St Catherine’s! Here is a link to the Poster with details. We look forward to seeing you on the 26th at the Hampshire Hotel.
Numbers are limited so don’t delay!
The AGM will be from 3 pm at the clubhouse on Sunday 27th November.
Once again we are running winter race training sessions for those keen to hone their skills & keep active during the winter months. This year the Laser, Optimist & Topper training will all take place on the same day commencing Sunday 6th November at 09:30.
Martin & Jamie will lead the Laser coaching & we are looking for volunteers to help with race coaching the Optimist & Topper fleets plus we need plenty of volunteers to man safety boats & shore cover. As the saying goes “many hands make light work” so the more volunteers we have the more we can spread the load so if you can spare some time on a Sunday morning please send an email to Martin email@example.com, James.firstname.lastname@example.org & David email@example.com with the help you can provide so we can get a rota set up.
For your diary the training dates are as follows:

Especially valuable for those racing regularly or anyone perhaps uncertain about the protest process that would like to know more. Its free to members .
Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend, junior members are especially encouraged to do so.
Race Officer Training
