Saturday Sail

Time is getting short and the weather is rather unsettled as we go into October, with only a few sailings left in the calendar it is time to shake a leg and get out on the water.

Weather permitting we will be sailing this Saturday morning, mustering at the rather unholy time of 08:30am.

The forecast for Friday is a strong wind from the West but this should easy for us on Saturday.

If you are up for it then call/text skipper Mark or use the email button on the Sailing Calendar page.

See you soon

Mark

Saturday Sail - 28 September

There are only three more sails scheduled for this year, so form an orderly queue to get onboard.

We can't promise you sunshine, but the current forecast predicts dry weather and a moderate SW breeze. Can't really hope for more at this time of year.

To book your place please contact skipper John v d H by text of phone or by email using John’s email button on the Sailing Calendar.

If you are joining this sail please remember to bring warm clothing and water proofs, just in case.

Muster at 1300 for departure asap thereafter, and we will make landfall at about 1800.

Hope to see you on Saturday

Saturday Sail - places available and Note New Time

There are still places available for the morning sail this Saturday 21st September.

Please note this is on the Sailing Program as a Day Sail, but due to tides and darker evenings it would mean not getting back onto the North Arm until about 7.00 PM which would make it a very long day.

The weather forecast is reasonable, dry, sunny intervals with light to moderate S/SE winds. So I now propose to muster at 09:00 AM and depart ASAP and back on dry land by approx 12:30 mid day in time for a beer.

I already have some bookings made several weeks ago, if you have made such a booking with me, can you please re-confirm your availability.

To book please contact me, Skipper Dave by phone or use the email button.

Remember not many sailing days remaining for this season, so please come along and enjoy what is left of what has been a very good season in general. Still some time if you want to hone or learn a new skill.

See you on board,

Dave.

If you think this maybe for you then contact skipper Clive by phone, if he doesn't pickup then just leave a message as he is working. Alternatively use the “email skipper” button on the sailing calendar.

It is time to digout the sailing kit you know that you deserve it.
