Evening all,
Well the Easter regatta was exciting, until it became too exciting!  The HRO took the decision that the winds were too strong and the number of boats blowing over was against the spirit of the covid guidelines.  Well done to Henry, who as he won Day 1 of the regatta also won the overall regatta.


The sailing and SUPing seasons will now get underway in earnest with tonights racing starting the Wednesday A race series.

A local photographer (Pauls Photography) took the image above, and a fair few others.  Check them out at the following link:
e's kindly offered to send people the high res images if anyone wants them.  I think they're superb!!  He's contactable at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

A massive thank you to Mike, Lucas and Natalie Barrow.  After seeing the transformation of the coffee shop area the committee decided to follow the colour themes through the ground floor.  Mike, Lucas and Natalie have spent the bulk of the last two days filling, sanding and painting the walls.  And that was after Mike coming off a late shift and on call!  Jane, Mike and Lucas and Natalie are coming back tomorrow to finish the job.  The downstairs will look very smart.  What I think we need now is a member photographer to take some Sailing and SUP pictures and we can update some of our photograps to compliment the more historic images we have.  I feel a competition coming on!!

A select crew got together safely to pressure wash and clean up the topper fleet in preparation for the next Jybaz on Saturday.  Tricia, Ralph, Kieran and others (I was busy inside) were joined by a new member Adrian and Poppy.  I'm sure Ade and his family will be happy at the club and we'll be happy to have him (he's a PB2)! 🤣

Stay safe


P.S.  The Galley Coffee Shop opens on Tuesday 13th April.  You can follow us on Facebook by searching for "The Galley Coffee Shop" or sign up at www.thegalleygroup.com.  Again, thanks to everyone who has helped in the transformation of the area.  Fingers crossed it's a success.



Hi all,

First off


The clubhouse is now open for members, as are the changing rooms and showers! Remember, the code for the changing rooms and store cupboard has been distributed via email, but feel free to come and ask me.  The guidance from the RYA is that people should still arrive ready to sail and minimise the use of the changing rooms and showers where possible.  It's also worth noting that we should all continue to maintain social distancing.

Members can also sail a 2 hander with members of different households and part of a club event e.g. racing.

The full RYA guidance (updated 17/05/2021) is available here.

Neil has cleaned the pipes and ordered the beer, spirits and mixers. The bar will be open on Wednesday evening for table service only. Take a seat and order and pay from your chair.
