January 2018 News

1. Membership Renewals

Membership renewal forms will be sent out soon.  We have to comply with the new data protection act that comes into force in May, and it is vital that all members make their data protection choices, sign  and return the form to the Hon Membership Secretary.  It remains a requirement to sign & return the terms and conditions form – and to pay the bill as well, of course!

Please contact the membership secretary about known or intended resignation – and changes of address: swanagesailingclubmembership@gmail.com.

2. House Duties

There are two types of house duty which involve either helping in the galley (kitchen) or bar and all members are required to do two per year. The club is open for lunch on Sunday throughout the whole year.

The first duties for 2018 are now set to volunteer wanted, and during February we will be publishing house duties up till the end of the sailing season. You will be able to choose duties during the self allocation period after which time the Dutyman system will auto allocate duties to members.

Need help?


  • Dutyman and the SSC website have different logins.
  • Also please read the FAQ if you need to recover your Dutyman password.
  • Any duties you volunteer for do count towards your two per year.


3. Berthing

Please let the berthing officer and membership secretary know ASAP if you are changing you boat or kayak berthing requirements in 2018, e.g. not needing a berth, changing boat, or needing summer berth only.

4. Calling any Architects

The SSC Commodore Howard Potter is looking for a member who is an architect who may be willing to assist with the early stage of our club room extension plans. Please contact webmaster@swanagesailingclub.org.uk and your mail will be forwarded to him.
