The 2023-2024 Season is completed and it’s now time to prepare for the 2024-2025 season – with boat repairs, updates or just purely admiring the lines of a lovely boat. Or a maybe a sunny escape from these cooler Autumn and then Winter Days.

But there’s the July Annual General Meeting to attend and the new sailing program to seek out in September.

But if you are interested or just intrigued to know more about sailing, Sailability or Duty please get in contact now, before the season begins.  Send us an email

But, you wonder, what is involved with Duty?  There’s four positions on the day:

First: being on land, watching and monitoring the on-water antics and talking on the radio.

Then three positions on the water commencing with launching, retrieving and driving the safety boat, setting courses, setting and retrieving buoys, starting races (time keeping, flags up and down and horn blowing), monitoring the boats, sometimes effecting rescues and finalising the race results.

Of course in all those activities is chewing a lot of fat – tactics, mistakes, admiration and disagreement – all in fun.  And many of our members are rev-heads – so it’s not all sails!

So get in touch now and see what part of club life and sailing with which you’d like to be involved.
