Preparing for Safe Sailing 2019!

With the new Sailing Season just about to kick off, our final Off-Season Winter Wednesday Evening talk this week is by Stan Pyke, our club safety guru. And what better topic than safety preparation for the upcoming sailing season.  Stan will remind us of the dos and don’ts of staying safe in the bay.  Stan will also assess your life jackets and advise on the best ways to maintain.  Bring your lifejackets along and any questions you might have.  Lets have a safe summer sailing or indeed in any water sport this year!

Wednesday 24th April, 8.30pm. This is a free talk.  Club opens at 8.00pm. Talk starts at 8.30pm.  Non Members Welcome.

Scillies or Bust!

This next Winter Wednesday Evening talk is by Brian Lennon on March 27th. at 8.30pm.

An illustrated account of our third successful trip to the Isles of Scilly on Blue Air in June 2018 with comments on getting knotted near Arklow, a different view of the watch system, aerial shots of beautiful Padstow and Dale, tidal observations off Milford Haven. Almost as good as going there yourself and a lot cheaper!

This is a free talk. Bring a friend!
