    A history of the Midland Sailing Club, part 1.

    In the early 2010’s, a statement in the club magazine “Mainsheet” lead one of our most long-standing members, Alan Birch, to do a little research. This is the first of Alan's articles on the History of the Sailing Club.

  • A hardy group of MSC's members brave the snow for Chris G's workshop on boat trim.

    A hardy group of MSC's members brave the snow for Chris G's workshop on boat trim.

    It was well worth overcoming the cold and snowy roads. There was lots of in-depth discussion about boat trim from Chris and Caroline. All about foils, hull and sails and how to get them working together for the best boat performance in different conditions. Many thanks to Chris and Caroline.

  • The 30+ challenge

    The 30+ challenge

    This year we are challenging our sailing members once a month to see if we can get more than 30 boats on the water together. We didn't manage 30 this time not suprising it being rather cold and gusty - the next date should be better weather. It's the 24th of March. This month's winners of both the Scratch and Handicap Tuning Forks were Richard Dee and Nancy Gudgeon.
