A Coterie of Commodores !

As part of the build up to the 90th Birthday Celebrations we have been looking in the archives. The photo is of a Coterie of Commodores at the Club's last big Birthday Celebration, the 75th in 2003, some sadly are no longer with us.
That year we had a more formal dinner at the Peasehill House Hotel in Rawdon.For this year's 90th Celebrations we are going to be more relaxed and we will be celebrating on the Commodores Weekend 7th & 8th July. We would love all members, ex-members and friends of the Club to join us particularly on the Saturday evening.
For more information on the various celebratory activities please get in contact with us via the Website, Messenger or Facebook,  or pop into the Club on a sailing day

Jumping June - Busy week ahead


After Half Term last week with people away it is back to normal at the Club this week with lots going on !

Tuesday evening was glorious with lots of boats out on the water – we were actually featured on the Yeadon – Our Community Facebook Page when someone uploaded photos of the training session in the evening sunshine !

The Wednesday Evening race has just finished with Richard notching up another win in his Laser.

This weekend there is lots going on with another Intermediate Training session on Saturday morning with Andrew and the team. The session starts at 10.30 so you can rig and get changed with a briefing at 11.30 and on the water for 12.00. These are open to anybody to improve their sailing and racing skills. Please sign up on our webcollect system at  YSC home on WebCollect if you would like to come to a session.

Then sailing continues with normal Club series races at 2.30pm and 4.00pm, then we finish off with a Social Sailing Session at 5.00pm.

On Sunday is the second One Day Trophy with 3 races on the day. These Trophy Days are for everyone, and we hope all our racers and Intermediate Trainees take part. It will be organised to take account of everyone's experience and adjusted accordingly. Please arrive 11.30 and racing starts at 1.00pm and we encourage all members to come along.
This new venture is in response to some of our newer members being less confident racing and others with family commitments preventing series racing.

Trophies and prizes will be presented on the day.
 If you use Facebook please follow and like the Yeadon Sailing Club Facebook Page, there is lots of current things posted on there and we are raiding our archive of historic and recent photos and information trying to put up lots to interest people


Looking forward to a great weekend on the water.
