    Please can you tie down all boats, kayaks etc? The wind is off shore so any item not tied down will be blown off to the Isle of Wight.

    For those who are not aware the RNLI Penant race is a charity event held at this time every year. The Swanage Lifeboat comes out for us and normally is part of the start line. There is an entry donation of either a bottle of wine or £5. The proceeds and all the bottles go to RNLI bottle store which is held on Princess Gardens on Sunday 21st August. 10.00 hrs onwards.

    Unfortunately last year the race had to be cancelled because of bad weather therefore the amount donated was embarassingly meagre. Let us make up for it this year. All contestants please bring a bottle preferably before Thursday 18th August, you can leave it behind the bar marked RNLI Penant or please donate monies to either Howard Potter, Rob Seal. We would also urge for any member whether racing or not to contribute a bottle or donation to this very worthwhile charity.

    Swanage Sailing Club - Scheduled Cruise to Chapman’s Pool – Friday 29th July 2016

    Another great opportunity to finesse your seamanship skills!

    Briefing at SSC - 9.30am Friday 29th July
    Leave SSC at 10.30 approx
    Back to SSC latish afternoon (same day!) for tea and cake.
    Destination – Chapman’s Pool – return distance approximately 18 nautical miles (about the same as the Bournemouth Pier race)
    Low Tide at Swanage c. 12.14
    High Tide at Swanage c. 21.07

    Ideally, if weather conditions permit, we would beach or anchor in Chapman’s Pool for a picnic lunch and optional swim. Any variations to the destination plan will be decided at the briefing. If there is too much or too little wind we may shorten the cruise and possibly not land until back in Swanage. We plan on having a Swan or another RIB as rescue cover and warmly invite the SSC members with yachts to join us. Some limited spaces for crews without a boat should be available. Low to medium PYs encouraged and please note that this is not a race……

    Things to bring in addition to normal racing/fun sailing gear;

    • Anchor
    • Painter
    • Paddle
    • Water
    • Lunch
    • Sun block!
    • Radio if available or mobile in waterproof bag
    • Outboard motor if available or feasible

    Upcoming cruising opportunities for your diary

    Ideas are welcomed for the first Swanage Sailing Safari Supper cruise. This would possibly involve leaving our boats over one or two nights at the Shell Bay Marine and travelling back by road to Swanage each night. Spend two days exploring Poole Harbour like swallows and amazons. 10% discounts available at the Shell Bay restaurant. Possible dates, 15/8 on, 22/8 on, 29/8 on. We would try and choose a time that matches the best tides.
