Anthony Fielding

Members will be saddened to hear that Anthony Fielding died on the 8th January after a long battle with cystic fibrosis. Anthony was a keen Sigma 33 racer including the Round the Island and Fastnet races. Our thoughts go to his wife Ceri and young daughter Miro. His funeral is to be at Worth church on Tuesday January 30th at 1pm.

Site hacked message – resolved

If you search for the SSC in Google you might see a note in the results that the site may have been hacked. There was a SPAM problem which has now been fixed. This wasn’t a vulnerability with the actual SSC site which was up to date with security rather either a wider problem on server or a retired sibling site. There are likely hundreds of sites running on one server.

This issue has been fixed now and I’ve requested Google remove the penalty notice in the results. Going forward we may possibly switch to different hosting. The hosting company should have flagged the problem before Google and they have apologised.

It’s worth noting that this does not affect the web shop.

[update] Google have reviewed this site, approved it and will be removing the notice.
[update] 15th Jan all resolved now.

The Webshop is Open

The webshop for taking member payments is now open, please go here.

There are two payment methods available, Cheque and BACS which are free, we are not using credit/debit card payment as this would incur a fee.

This website and the webshop mark a step towards a more modern centralised member management system.

Important: if you pay by BACs, you must include a reference number when you make the payment. The reference ID is either your membership ID which is on your membership form, or if you use the webshop, it’s the order ID which you’ll be given automatically.

Important: you can’t pay for boat hire, or resolve under/overpayments with the shop yet. This is coming. Send a cheque for now.

Important: You can’t join Swanage Sailing Club without having received a membership form from the Hon. Membership Secretary.

How do I join Swanage Sailing Club?

Please see the page becoming a member.

Sad News

We have just heard the very sad news that Jorg Anneheim died suddenly at Christmas following a short illness. A keen Dart 15 sailor, Jorg was happily running the club bar at the Christmas musical evening. Our thoughts go to Sue and family at this time.

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?

N.B.

  • 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.
