Commodore's Weekend 11th and 12th July

This years' Commodore's Weekend features activities for everyone including

  • Stand alone races series with prizes. 3 races on Saturday and 3 on Sunday with 3 discards, so if people can only do one day, they still get results.
  • Beginners Training on Saturday morning
  • Improvers Training on Saturday afternoon
  • Bouncy Castle for the kids
  • Galley for Saturday and Sunday Lunch
  • Social in the evening with BBQ and catering from Rural Recipes
  • Prize Giving for the 2014 race series
  • Volunteer awards.
  • 30 minute physio taster sessions with Paragon Physiotherapy on Sunday

This popular weekend is a chance to celebrate all we do with your fellow club members, so why not make a weekend of it, and take advantage of FREE CAMPING on Saturday night.  I will be delighted if you can join me.

Erica Caswell, Commodore

Courteous Driving Reminder

A gentle reminder to all club members and visitors to drive carefully and within the speed limits when going through local villages and to be courteous to other road users.  I have been contacted by a concerned local about vehicles trailing boats driving too fast, particularly past horse riders.

Thank you,  Erica Caswell, Commodore.

Family/Holiday Week August 22nd - 31st 2015

Safety on the Water

We have recently added extra 'escort boat' duties to Dutyman to provide extra cover for busy events like the Vago/ 29er weekend on 23/24/25th May and Bart's Bash on 20 September. Currently these events require extra volunteers for Duties. Please could members have a look on Dutyman and sign up if you are able / willing to help with these extra duties or have not yet signed up.


  • Know the Knots

    We all need to use them, whether we're racing, windsurfing or on a powered boat. Grab some spare string, sheets or halyards and sit down with this selection of knot training videos!
