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.
Thank you for considering volunteering for what promises to be a great afternoon!

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