What's on

Current Series - Early Summer Series starts at the end of May.

Leisure sailing Sundays from 11am 

First Race starts around 12pm then two after lunch. If you don't want to race just come and sail around.

The first of this Summer's Wednesday Evening Sailing sessions start on the 13th May around 6pm and will continue until mid or late July. They are an opportunity to take advantage of the longer evenings to practice sailing, to just have a quiet sail around the lake or even to have a race.

Also this year on Wednesday evenings we are running some Race Training Sessions. They are made up of; How to be a Race Officer, (on shore), a Practice Starting session (on water) and a full race (on water). It will be optional and people can still potter if they don’t want to join the training.





Diary Dates

The Longest Day race on Saturday 21st June in which we run a 4-5 hour relay race.
