Saturday Oct 26th SSC social Bike ride

SSC  social Bike ride in and around  Rempstone Forest before the evening Laying up supper

The ride is about 22 miles with no major hills and about half on half off road on good tracks. Off road bikes including hybrids would be best rather than road bikes with  skinny tires

Light lunch at Kings Arms Stoborough where a bike lock might be useful whilst in the pub. (A number of bikes can be chained together if you don’t possess one)

We will meet  at the Banks Arms NT car park Studland at 10.00 for a 10.15 start. If not a NT member there are some free parking places on the road down from the village shop towards the Banks Arms.

We will go along Ferry road to turn off for Greenlands Farm , then on to  Newton, Wytch Farm, Shawford Bridge, to Arne and Shipstal point. Back towards Stoborough  to the Kings Arms for a light lunch.

After lunch we will leave on the B3075 turning off for Ridge  then on to  Soldiers road,  left to skirt Hartland’s Moor  on to Scotland and Norden roundabout . Back past the sewage works and right across Wytch Heath past Higher Bushy farm and Rempstone  farm to cross Kingswood heath back towards Greenland then sharp right across Godlingston Heath Nature reserve and back to Studland.

Please let me know if you are intending   coming so I can book an appropriate table at the pub.

All are welcome

“13kts +” WhatsApp Sailing Group

There’s a new sailing group at SSC called the 13kts + Sailing Group.

The 13kts group organise themselves via a WhatsApp group and sail mostly during the week ad hoc when the wind and tide are right. Preferred winds are 13kts+ though we do go out in lighter winds too, and we’ll sail throughout the whole year.

There’s no safety boat cover with this group but we assist each other with launch and recovery. The group is welcome to all independent sailors, and to join, please email Klaus at: webmaster@swanagesailingclub.org.uk, sharing your mobile phone number which is needed to connect you to the WhatsApp group. You’ll need WhatsApp on your phone too.

See all social sailing groups over here.

Bart’s Bash – drifting on a glorious day

Bart’s Bash at Swanage raised £130 for the Andrew Simpson Foundation
A big thank you to all who volunteered to help at Bart’s Bash: Adrian for organising, Doug and the Safety Team, the Beach Volunteers; Sue Barnes for registration and receiving donations, and Jenny Piesse who wasn’t needed for scoring in the end, as the wind let us down on this occasion. Thank you to all the crew of the 20 Boats who made it out to the glassy Bart’s drift, and for your generous donations, and those of others, to a very good cause. Hattie F won the sailing watch in the draw; we now expect her to be hitting the start line even more punctually. We’ll all appreciate wind more in future!

September 14/15th Sailing

Studland Cruise Saturday 14th Sept.

It’s looking very good , wind 9mph easterly , tides look good as well , the sun will be shining. What more can you ask for warm weather, sparking seas – the wind in a different direction maybe. The main thing is we are good to go

Briefing 10.30am – launch 11.00am

See you tomorrow morning – bring your picnic lunch.

Bart’s Bash Sunday 15th Sept.

Bart’s Bash this Sunday at the Club. Briefing at 10:00, race at 11:00. Forecast looking sunny and warm with a nice F2-3. Let’s get as many boats out on the water. Fun, sun, racing and prizes to be won.

Bart’s Bash

The Series Race on Sunday 15th September at 1100 will be sailed as a single start race, and the results incorporated into the Bart’s Bash international results, as well as scoring for the autumn series. We hope to get as many sailors as possible, of all standards, participating in the race, for which there will be prizes for first place, first Junior and first Adult Trainee. There will be a briefing at 1000.

It is hoped that entrants will make a small contribution to the Andrew Simpson Foundation charity, whose fundamental ethos is to “facilitate a wider participation in sailing, and to optimise the benefits that the sport can deliver to young people and ultimately to society at large. Importantly, we seek to be as inclusive as possible by encouraging participation to children and young people from all backgrounds, and catering for a range of physical and educational abilities”. Contributing to the charity will constitute an entry into a draw for a £75 Gill sailing racing watch.
