We are only 3 weeks away from the largest sailing event in the world on Sunday 18th September, the day the world goes sailing! Come and join in at St Catherine’s Sailing Club, start time 11.00am.

Bart’s Bash has seen more than 45,000 sailors participate at their home clubs in 62 countries across the past 2 years. The event is a great opportunity to raise funds for the Andrew Simpson Sailing Trust, which is focused on encouraging young people to get involved in the wonderful sport of sailing. Donations can be made by each sailor on the website.
Spread the word to your family and friends and let’s see if we can achieve the biggest fleet and fund raising event St Catherine’s Sailing Club has ever seen!
It’s a shame but given the high wind forecast its been decided to cancel.
Next Sunday morning (meeting at 10:00 a.m.) is especially for any juniors that have been training on one of our RYA level 1 – 4 courses this summer.
Lets celebrate that you are learning to sail!
They’ll be some free sailing in club oppis and Pico’s, a few short races for those that would like to. This is also a great chance for parents to find out more about the club and what the next steps are after your training finishes this summer.
Hot dogs, salad and cakes for lunch! Here is the poster with more information Junior Fun Regatta 2016
Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org asap if you would like to come along so we have an ideas of numbers. or tel 857987 with any questions.
Bronze, Silver & Gold Races
This Thursday 4th heralds the start of a new format for our summer evening races, giving everyone a chance to race and win!
Although the start at 7pm will include all dinghies, we are splitting the results into three fleets.
Gold fleet racers will be experienced sailors and past trophy winners, with the Silver fleet made up of those who have some previous experience of racing.
The Bronze fleet is specifically for novices and first time racers, so come and have a go!
A member of the Sailing Committee will be on hand from 5pm to give advice and assistance if you need reassurance.
Class Championships 2016
Our annual Class Championship Regatta this Sunday 7th will consist of three races back to back, starting promptly at 10am.
If you sail a popular class of dinghy at the Club, please join in, to race boat for boat and boost the fleet numbers.
A ‘Remnants’ class will also be factored in, using the PY handicap system, so that no-one is left ashore!
Lunch will be an informal bring your own BBQ so please bring your own snorkers, buns and burgers and grill away!
Cruise to Rozel
Meet at the Club 9:30 This Sunday Morning (24th July)
If you like the idea of a gentle sail round to Rozel, leaving around 10.00 and going with the tide, picnic at Rozel and return at slack tide, before 1500 hours when the steps at the bottom of the slip will begin to uncover. Minimum size of boat is Pico. The trip is not suitable for Optimists. This is recommended for experienced helms only.
The final plan will be confirmed on Sunday and is also subject to a minimum of two RIB drivers (with crew) and sufficient interest from sailors. Of course weather dependent too, though current forecast looks good and tides work well. [Force 3 Westerly: High 10:15: Low 16:51]
Don’t forget to bring a picnic and sun cream!
