About Club Racing.
The Club sails on Saturdays and/or Sundays from September through to April. We also run a winter series for those who are keen. Sailing times vary to coincide with incoming tides. Handicap racing ensures all sailors have an opportunity to compete on a fair basis and perhaps take home a trophy even when sailing an older boat.
 
Health and Safety
Whether you are new to sailing or an old-hand please read the articles below about the things we should think about, look at and check on to help us avoid injury. Before going out on the water all sailors must read the Sailing Safety Procedures on this page.
Not to be forgotten the most important part of safe sailing is attending the skippers briefing before any event.
