Hi to All Dinghy/Junior/LTS Sailors/Club Members/Parents,

Hope everyone is well and has got through the lockdown period with no issues, and are now looking forward to getting back out on the water!

I thought I would send out a quick email to let you all know what the current plans are for sailing to start again.

At this stage we are planning to start with the Winter Racing Series on the Sunday 12 July 20; 10am sheds/club open for a 12 pm start. The winter series will consist of 10 races, which is only 2 less races than previous years.

We would like to see a good fleet on the water and it would be great to see the confident sailors from the Learn to Sail program on the water too! 

If you are wondering why we have a decent gap between now and the 12th July? 

The key reason is we need to carry out maintenance on the safety boats, racing equipment and the club Firebugs/OPTI prior to commencing the winter program. We had planned to do this earlier, then the lockdown occurred. This break will also allow us to hopefully be in Level 1 when the sailing activities resume.

There will be requests for assistance during this period of maintenance following the long weekend so it would be much appreciated if people could please put their hand up to assist.

Reminder that the Learn to Sail program is run during the summer months so will start again in late October/ early November, once daylight saving starts.

Please let us know if you have any questions
