Covid-19 update:

We are following the latest RYA and government guidelines and regulations with the aim to resume normal club activities as soon as it is safe to do so. The 2021 sailing schedule below assumes a 'normal year', but we expect it to change as the local restrictions are updated. As with our 2020 activities, we aim to provide a 3 stages of sailing: unsupported Free Sailing -> Supported Sailing (support boat on the water) -> Club Racing.

For events and social activities, the Sailing Committee is working with event organisers and class associations to assess the impact of Coronavirus and our ability to run the event. Please check back regularly, sign up to News Alerts, and join our Facebook members group to get the latest information.
