An eye on the weather has shown that there is a large amount of rain and some wind approaching which gives rise to Roger Noel, our guide, suggesting that we use our reserve date in two weeks time.
So until Sunday 12th February, where we will meet at Big Verns at 1.30 pm.
Enjoy the weekend!
Dear Sailors and Friends,
The eagerly awaited SCSC sailing calendar is now here.
Get out your diaries and pencil in all the regattas and events….
SCSC Sailing Programme 2017 V3.7
Please note we are now using Dutyman for staffing the events, you can see who is on duty and make changes easily with the new system.
We thank the Sailing Sec. and his team for the hard work in getting the calendar out , and we look forward to another great season on the water at St Catherine and all the other venues.
Sunday 29th Jan 1.30pm
This year’s winter walk will start from Big Vern’s carpark and will be a circular walk of around 2.5 hours hosted by Blue Badge guide Roger Noel.
All he has asked for is a review on Trip Advisor and a cup of tea at the end!
Please come and join our winter social event with your friends.
Dear Sailors and Friends,
The new membership and dinghy berthing form is now available for you to print off and send to Jamie to ensure your 2017 membership and berthing is up to date. Please ensure that your boat is registered and paid up for the 2017 season, boats not registered at SCSC may be removed to allocate space.

APPLY NOW FOR THE 2017 JERSEY CLIPPER BURSARY
Applicants of all ages are invited to apply for the 2017 Jersey Clipper Bursary – a £1,000 cash award aimed at furthering maritime endeavour.
The bursary is designed to assist an Islander of any age to achieve a particular nautical ambition. This could be a trip on a tall ship, attending a training course, participation in a watersports competition, undertaking a marine biology field trip or competing in an ocean race – anything with a maritime theme.
The annual award, a legacy from the three Jersey campaigns in the Clipper Round-the-World Race, was established in 2007 through the generosity of Dandara, Les Pas Holdings and UBS. Further funding to ensure the future of the award has recently been provided by UBS, enabling the trustees to increase the main bursary to £1,000 and offer a runner’s-up award of £500.
The 2017 winner will follow in the wake of St Catherine’s Sailing Club member Katie Bennett-Jones who used the 2016 award to attend a Senior Dinghy Instructor course at the Rockley Watersports Centre in the UK.
‘The course was such hard work but so interesting and I have now come back full of new ideas and information,’ said Katie on her return to Jersey. ‘I cannot thank the trustees enough for giving me this amazing opportunity.’
Last year’s runner-up, surfer Hayden Bishop, used his award to help fund his participation in the British National Surf Championships held at Perranporth in Cornwall in October.
The deadline for submitting written applications for this year’s award is the end of April 2017. They should be no more than 200 words in length and should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
