    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.

    We have visitors from the Poole Yacht Racing Association (PYRA) this Sunday and Helen will need extra help in the kitchen. I realise it's short notice but could we have two volunteers to boost the Galley team for this Sunday? Usual 11am start.
