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.
We are much saddened by the news that Rosie Warren has recently passed away after a very long illness. Some of our members will remember Terry and Rosie zipping round the bay at an impressive speed in their Dart 18.
Rosie’s funeral is at 2pm on Monday 8th January 2018. The venue is Harbour View, Woodland Burial Ground, Poole BH16 6AN
On Saturday 16th December there will be a Christmas celebration at the club. Mike Etherington is organising the entertainment, which will be of its usual high standard, with assorted musical and humorous contributions from many members of the club and their families.
This is always a great evening and you should put it in your diary now. Newer members who attend Tuesday training – if you haven’t experienced a Sailing Club Christmas entertainment before, you should make sure to fill that gap in your experience this year. And if you have a talent for any kind of entertaining, musical or otherwise, please get in touch with Mike and offer your services.
The food will be on a ‘Bring and Share’ basis. Please bring something interesting and preferably seasonal to eat. Quiche, pate, cheese, sausages, mince pies and cake all come to mind, but the choice is yours. Just remember to bring at least as much as you intend to eat!
Helpers will be needed earlier in the day to arrange the chairs in the club room and set out a big table in the training room for the food. As I will be away, I would be grateful if someone can volunteer to supervise the practical aspects of the evening, leaving Mike free to sort out the performers.
