Social sailing makes a welcome return
Published 22:23 on 4 Jun 2019
If you want to use sailing to escape the stresses of the week or catch up with friends and family, then what could be better than messing about on the water in boats. Social Sailing is a friendly, informal activity that can cater for everyone's interests. From beginner to improver, social sailing allows time to potter with the family, to practise your own skills or maybe even try out a new boat.
Social sailing with formal rescue boat cover takes place on Sunday mornings between 11am and 12:30pm. Although the sailboarders may be holding a race on some days, there's plenty of water for everyone and you just need to be aware that they may be racing. And social sailors might like to improve further and gain more confidence by joining the afternoon races which start at around 2pm - just tag along with the fleet.
Social sailing is free to all members and there's no need to book in advance - you can come and go as you please. We just ask that you let the Officer of the Day and their rescue crew know that you are there. Simply sign in when you arrive and sign out when you leave.
At other times, members might also like to join the informal social sailing group that organises its own meet-ups and safety arrangements via a WhatsApp group. Email Hugh Dyer or Rachel Jennings if you would like to join in.
