Unfortunately the forecast for tomorrow shows NE F7 in the morning and a rather cold setting with real feel temperatures hovering 0 degrees
Regrettably we need to cancel sailing and will be looking to reschedule subject to crews availability

Apologies once again, the opportunities to sail this winter have been far between so far, but we’ll continue to look for any opportunity available to us to safely get on the water!

Sailing Saturday 20th January cancelled

Unfortunately the forecast for tomorrow shows F9 in the morning that will only decrease in the afternoon, which together with low tide at 1453 would not allow us to launch and retrieve Ribs in a safe manner
Regrettably we need to cancel sailing and will be looking to reschedule subject to crews availability

Sunday 21 January 2018 training & open sailing update

In light of the current weather conditions and being our crews and sailors safety our utmost priority,  we’ve been monitoring the forecasts for this weekend  with particular attention

There is now a fair degree of confidence that Sunday 21January will see winds in excess of 30kn, and therefore unsafe to sail in St Catherine’s

Regarding Saturday 20th January, the situation is fast evolving- from a forecast of NW <10kts 24h ago to the latest issued that depicts a worsening condition

Therefore the club decided to not host sailing session on Sunday, but  only tomorrow with a settled forecast will we announce if Saturday sailing will be happening instead, or if we postpone to next weekend

Please keep an eye out for club comms on the site or Facebook for the latest update

Thank you for your support

Training session/Open Sailing change- Saturday 6 Jan 0930 instead of Sunday 7 Jan 0930

Happy new year !

In light of the current weather forecast it has been decided to move the scheduled training session for Lasers, Toppers and Optimists/ Open sailing day from Sunday 7 Jan 0930 to Saturday 6 Jan 0930

Apologies for the late notice, but it is now clear that Sunday sailing will not be possible, and instead Saturday forecast has a good 8h window with light winds for us to get back in the water and dust the cobwebs away

Besides the training this is an open sailing event for all club members  to practice using the marks and Ribs in the water

Hope to see all in the water, please be aware of the current air and sea temperature when planning the weather gear to be used

Sailing Sunday 10th December cancelled

Dear Sailors and Friends,

Current forecast for Sunday is not looking too good, specially in the morning where gusts can largely exceed normal safe parameters for dinghy sailing

Unfortunately this is the second session in a row we are forced to cancel, albeit not unusual for this time of the year is always disappointing when it happens

We are  hopeful to be able to hold the last event of the year  on boxing day 26th December at 11.00h, and are looking forward to seeing you all then in the water and for refreshments and a slice of cake afterwards
