From the Commodore - Summer 22
We are well into the sailing season and are delighted to have had an excellent turn out of some 90 pupils for the P7 tasters despite very mixed weather. This followed an open day which attracted more than 30 folk and resulted in a significant number of adults signing up for our adult courses. We have also altered the sailing schedule a little to allow more space for Stage 1 beginners on Wednesday evenings as we progress through the summer courses and have more beginners needing to consolidate their knowledge on the water. As yet we have
We are so excited to be holding our annual Open Day on 21st May, 10am-4:00pm at the clubhouse in Scorrybreac!
Every club member is invited along at any point through the day to enjoy a sail in one of the small boats, and our instructors will be on hand to take all interested members of the public out for a taster session throughout the day.
Tea and cake will be available, and donations will go to club funds.
Hope to see lots of new faces!
It may be snowing and sleeting outside, but longer days and life on the water are not long off! Our 2022 course bookings are now LIVE for both SAILING AND WINDSURFING! Head on over to our website bookings page to secure your spaces for this summer, as they will fill up quickly!
Come greet the new year in nautifcal style with us! Polar Dip from the slip at 12:00, and then a session on the water after that for those who want to sail and windsurf (weather and COVID regulations permitting). We shall follow the session with a BBQ and a presentation from the Commodore. All are welcome, and no booking required!
It has become obvious this week that autumn is truly here, and that our evenings are closing in much earlier. From today onwards, all evening sessions will run from 6:00-8:00pm to ensure we have enough light!
Round Raasay 2021 !
We're delighted to announce that the Round Raasay Pursuit Race will be held on 25th September.
The pursuit-style of race means that boats are given staggered start times depending on the vessel's handicap, with the expectation that all boats will arrive at the finish line in quick succession, making for an exciting end to the day! The race will be followed by a BBQ and refreshments at the clubhouse in Scorrybreac.
We request that entries are completed as soon as possible to allow time to determine the individual start times.
We have had more courses and people on the water than ever before if we include the new genres of rowing and windsurfing, so well done everybody, especially our almost-full-time senior instructor Chris Whatley and his great band of instructors. We have had 5 cadet and 2 adult sailing courses, 3 windsurfing courses, 2 powerboat courses
Exciting news! The Round Raasay pursuit race is now organised for the 25th of September. Entries will be required in advance, and the official entry form will be available within the next few days. Write the date on your calendar, and spread the word to all the keelboat owners you know! Keep an eye here even if you don't own a big boat, as Sailing Club members will be offered spaces aboard those boats which require crew!
Sailing for the 2021 season starts Tuesday 4 May with regular sailing Tuesdays (over 16 yo), Wednedsays (juniors stage 1 and 2) and Thursdays (improvers stage 3 and 4 all ages) all at 1830.
Book and pay online.
Any weather cancellations will be notified by 1700 on the day on our Facebook page - NO NOTIFICATION - SAILING IS ON!
There will also be Saturday themed sessions from time to time so watch this space and FB and windsurfing commencing in June.
We have a rowing instructor also available so contact us if you are interested in windsurfing or rowing.
