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

Dear Sailors and Friends,

The winter training begins this weekend on Sunday for all those who are prepared to brave the more brisk elements!

All classes from Optimist to the fastest dinghies including  Laser and Topper are all given tuition from the top club coaches , many of which have competed at international level. This is a great opportunity to get your skills up to speed.

Support boats are on hand to lay courses and assist with up close technique and skills tuition.

We look forward to seeing all our hardy members from 9.30am this Sunday, then again on the 25th Nov and 10 Dec this year….

Happy (slightly colder) sailing, Justin

Condor Ferries 7&8 tomorrow cancelled & club boats packing + Opi shore class

Owing to continued westerly/southwesterly gales 7-8, sailing at St Catherine’s Sailing Club is cancelled tomorrow.

If you want to meet up to help pack the club boats away for the winter, we will be down there at 10.30 followed by a cup of coffee.

There will be some basic land based training around skills and techniques ( tacking and gybing) for the Opi/Transition fleet.
The memory of the basic routine is important to gain successful transitions and I hope that the session would be for one hour in the club.
Meet at 10.00
