News

Please move boats and kayaks on rack B by 5pm 17th July.

As many Sailing Club members will know, our neighbours Swanage Pier have been refurbishing Marine Villas.

As part of the process they are updating their power supplies and as part of that job they need to dig 2 holes in our boat park. These will be 1m square and are under Rack B at the back of the club. In order for this to be done we need to remove all boats and kayaks and move the rack away from the wall behind.

So what I’m asking is

A – if you have any kayaks locked to the rack please remove the lock by 5 pm Tuesday 17th.

B – if you are unhappy about others moving your kayaks or dinghies move them before 5 pm on Tuesday, store in the car park.

C – if you can make it to the club at 5 pm Tuesday, to help move the rack and boats, we would be most grateful.

If all goes to plan the work will be completed in 2 or 3 days, when we can put everything back where it is now.

Any questions get in touch with Graham Bobbit Vice Commodore email: gkbobbit@icloud.com

National Success x 2

Congratulations to Crispin Read-Wilson on winning the French Flying Fifteen National Championships (He also won in 2016)
also
Congratulations on Sam Whaley who won the RS Aero 7 National Championships thus successfully defending the title that he held last year.

Chris (Christine) Rabson

Very sad to say that Chris passed away peacefully at home on 5th June after a long and courageous fight. A very few years ago Chris almost lived at the club helping out with catering, beach mastering and race recording and much more. Her other contributions to the wider Swanage community – the Arts Club, Carnival, choral singing and the RNLI will all be missed.
 
A private cremation is planned to take place on Tuesday 26th June followed by a service at St Mary’s Church Swanage at 12.30 and then a wake at the Sailng Club.  All Chris’s friends and family are warmly invited to the church and the club.
 
Howard Potter, Commodore

Try sailing on May 26th with RYA ‘Push the Boat Out’ at Swanage Sailing Club

Are you looking for a new way to get outdoors and active or find something you can enjoy together with the family? If the answer is yes, Swanage Sailing Club is inviting you and your family to come and try sailing for free on Saturday 26th May 2pm.

Whether you’re completely new to the sport or looking to get back on the water, RYA Push the Boat Out which takes place throughout May is the perfect time to give it a go.

The nationwide event will see thousands of people taking part in the sailing or windsurfing activity, with open days and taster sessions taking place at sailing clubs and centres across the country.

Starting at 2pm, on 26th May there will be a whole host of activities taking place including joyrides and basic instruction, with tea and cakes in the lovely Club House.

Sailing can be as physical or as relaxing as you want to make it, you can sail with others or on your own, do it competitively or potter about and just enjoy the gentle escape of being outside in the elements.
