Racing: In 2013 we are holding six races. In common with our overall philosophy, everyone is welcome to enter – we race off a Portsmouth Yardstick handicap system and members of all ages (adults and children) and ranges of experience take part. We keep the rules as simple as possible, have prizes for the best (and the keenest!) sailors over the season and always have a beer or two in the Espy at the end of a race.
Sailing email list: Members are encouraged to join our 'sailing' email list. This is used to advise of changes to plans and for members to contact each other: to arrange cruising in company, offer a place in their boat to crews, or who want to crew for others. To sign up for the list, sign in via the home page and edit your settings.
Club Boats: Sailing dinghies can only be taken out by those with an RYA level 2/ Stage 3 certificate on Sunday afternoons between 2 and 5pm when the club provides rescue boat cover. The officer of the day may allow those without those qualifications to use boats depending on the conditions. To arrange the use of a boat email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Training: Children can learn to sail at our Wednesday evening sessions. We currently don't offer adult training.
Safety: Members are reminded that they are responsible for their own safety, that of their crew and their boat, in the yard, on the prom and beach and on the water. Watch out for others using the area, including swimmers. No safety cover is provided except during races and similar club organised events. Members must make their own judgements about using their boats, taking account of their own and their crew's skills and experience, current and forecast weather and sea conditions, and the suitability of their craft.
