Try sailing on May 25th 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 25th 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 25th 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.

Volunteers needed

We would be very grateful if members could please consider volunteering to help, both ashore and afloat, to make this national event a success at SSC. Read more about the event.

Swanage Sailing Club is expecting up to 50 local newcomers to sailing over the afternoon. The plan is to show them our club and facilities, and for as many as would like to have rides in either in a sailing boat or a RIB, or kayaks if we have enough helpers, to get an introduction to the sport of sailing and healthy fun on the water.

Please contact Robert Baker on 07742 115101 if you are able to help on or off the water, or Julie Baker 07708 589693 if you could help with tea and cakes in the Galley. Or please email robwbaker@btinternet.com

The BBQ is included in entry for all competitors and a limited number of additional BBQ tickets will be available for £5 per person if required.  For any additional email about the event please look at the Notice of Race or use the regatta email address.  

For visiting sailors to the area, it is advised to bring your boat Friday evening if possible in order to avoid traffic Saturday morning coming into Swanage.  The bar will be open all evening on friday so you’ll be able to get your boat set up and have a drink out on the balcony.

Supported by Kemp Sails.

27th April Walk Cancelled

All SSC members – please note that the planned walking epic to the Square and Compass on the 27th April has been cancelled due to the forecast gale-strength headwind and the work commitments of our walk leader.

Hopefully this event will be re-scheduled in the late Autumn.

Safety Teams – 2019

The safety teams have now been published to the web site.

Please can you check the lists to see which teams you are on, and also the sailing calendar to check the dates your team is doing duties.

You will need to acknowledge your ability to do the duty by confirming it using Dutyman.

This is important as we need to ensure we have sufficient safety cover for each race.

We are still looking for more people to fill the teams so if your name is not on one of the safety teams

and you are a regular sailor or would like to help on a team then please let me know ASAP, so that I can add you to a team.

House Duties self allocation period – now till end March 2019

I’ve started the self allocation period for house duties for 2019, so please look out for the mail from Dutyman.

What’s the self allocation period? Help!

All members must do two house duties per year e.g. a Bar or Galley (kitchen) Duty. Duties are managed from Dutyman for which you will have a login, (note this is a separate login to the membership portal).

Self allocation is where you can self assign duties during a window of the next three weeks. After that time Dutyman will auto assign duties to you, people usually find it better to choose their own dates. Dutyman has sent all members an email inviting them to self assign duties.

Action: Please look out for the Dutyman mail, visit the self allocation form and sign up.

Note: this is for all duties through till the end of December and any duties already signed up for in Jan-March will count to your two duties.

Also, if you’re good with Dutyman: There are also some duties looking for volunteers in March not on the self allocation form, which you can volunteer for from the Dutyman website, and these need picking up first. Please help with that.
