New Years Day Gathering and Race

Club members are invited to come along on New Years Day to welcome in the year, and if you have a boat built like an ice breaker, maybe do some sailing.

The first race will start at 12noon, and then we'll have lunch at 1pm. If you have any leftovers then please bring these along.

Merry Christmas!

Tarn frozen for a second week

A frozen tarn prevented sailing in the Frostbite Series for a second week !

The ducks had managed to keep a very small area of water to swim on but it wasn't be enough to sail on. We shall have to see what this weekend brings, a thaw is rumoured but who knows !

To recognise outstanding contribution to the sport of sailing Neil McInnes is given by HRH the Princess the RYA Volunteer Award

On the 18th of November Neil McInnes attended a ceremony in London and he was presented by HRH The Princess Royal the RYA Volunteer Award to recognise the outstanding contribution he has made to the sport of sailing.

Neil has encouraged many new members to take up sailing and has enabled them to learn and gain confidence in a safe and secure environment. Existing members have also benefited by becoming involved in training and further developing their own skills. Most especially, Neil has developed the junior members of the club – rapidly getting them to a stage of being able to race – further developing their skills and encouraging them to become involved in regional race series, zone squads, etc.

Most of the club members, committee members and officers put in many hours for the club, however few have put in the sustained effort Neil has since joining the club and, in particular, over the last 18 years. His impact on the development of the club and its members has been extremely beneficial, however his impact on the junior members has been exceptional.
