Open meetings

 We hold Open Meetings throughout the year for several classes of dinghy.  Dates have already been set for the Enterprise, Merlin, GP14 and Laser fleets. 

 Club Racing

We race every Saturday afternoon and Wednesday evenings in the Summer. We have strong racing fleets and a high proportion of our members are regular sailors.

 

 

 National Competitions

The club and it's members also partcipate in many National competitions such as the Southport 24 and12 hour races, Merlin Silver Tiller series, Enterprise, Laser, Solo and Topper area series, Salcombe week and the Coppet week.

Duty Rota

Each and every club race is run by a hand picked team of professionals.  Failing that, club members are picked at random out of a hat and put on the duty rota (login required). The Club uses 'Dutyman'.
