Sailing for beginners

As some of you may know, the Club bought a Laser Stratos earlier in the Summer as a platform for teaching sailing to larger groups than the one-on-one format of double handed dinghies. It is also a faster and more exciting dinghy than the other two in the fleet.

Our recently co-opted Sailing Convenor Lindsay Dowds and past VP Al Black have committed to encouraging the wider membership to try sailing by providing beginner sessions that should see the new boat and existing fleet being used more regularly.

If you want to participate in these sessions please contact Lindsay via or in person at the club. More info about use of the Club sailing fleet can be found on the pull down menu under the Sailing tab above.

The object of the Club it to promote and foster all amateur water sports. Our investment in this new boat and the commitment being made by members to encourage its safe use is another example of the Club’s commitment to that objective.

We would encourage all members to use as much of the Club’s fleet as possible. That includes the 2no 16’s, 2no pairs and 2no Heavy 4’s recently refurbished.

If you have any queries about use of Club sporting facilities or equipment please contact the relevant convenor.
