Welcome to the 2022 – 23 Season

Welcome to the new sailing season.

22-23 is all about getting back on the water, having some fun & joining into all the events both off and on the water.

After the past couple of years with covid and some not so nice weather the Committee have decided there will be no sailing fees this season to help and encourage everyone to return to the water.

Check out the 2022 – 2023 Calendar for details of race dates & event.

Membership, race forms and Sailing Instructions are on the downloads and racing pages.

Remember 2022 – 23 is all about sailing & fun so keep a watch out for upcoming social events too.
