Webcam NOW Live

Dee SC has now joined the surveillance society and has installed a webcam in the new club office pointing out onto the moorings.  Now we wouldn’t condone not getting out of bed on a Sunday morning as the weather looks a bit ‘iffy from what you can see online, rather we would prefer you to come down and spend your money in the bar even if there is no sailing on; however we do hope that the webcam is a useful addition to the website and that is persuades you that the weather isn’t all that bad.

The webcam can be viewed by clicking on the ‘webcam’ link on the right hand side of the menu.  Due to technical reason’s we cant always guarantee that the camera will be operational, but we do aim to have it up and working as often as possible.

Junior Sailing this Saturday 20th April 1330 – Marine Lake

Jonathan Waddington (Junior Fleet Captain)

The weather looks to have calmed down by Saturday with light winds forecast. This should give us a great opportunity to see some new hands at the helm as well as enabling some of our more experienced juniors (and no doubt mums and dads!)to have a race or two.
Looking forward to seeing a number of you then.
Thanks all

Whombaff Trophy – this Sunday.

This Sunday sees the start of the Whombaff Trophy mini-series.  This inter fleet team racing event was so popular last year that it has been extended and will take place 3 times through the year.  We plan to kick off at 10:30am at the WKSC end of the lake and sail for 2 or 3 hours depending on the number of teams competeing.  Traditionally each fleet at the club will enter one or more teams into the battle but any team of three is welcome.  If you do not have a team lined up then just come down and we will pull together some impromputu teams.  It really is great fun and attracts a wide range of abilities so wether you are experiencd in a Laser Pico or not come on down and join in.  If you still dont fancy a sail then come and watch it is usually good for a laugh.  Ah , here is Matt right on queue …. he really loves his Pico !

Team Rescue.

Team Rescue.

Each team races against the other teams at least once then a semi-final / final is held between the top 4 teams.  Who will be victorious ?

So lets see you this Sunday at 10:30am

Cheers

Getting Started training

James Douglas (Training Officer)

Over the coming weeks we will be running some informal sessions to try to help members getting started sailing.

This weekend Sunday 14th April has been penciled in as the start of this process.

We will also be getting some support from the RYA on the basis that we commit to a 10 week programme. Ideally people attend for all the sessions. The main thing is that we keep you interested and you are keen to keep attending. If you cannot make all the sessions then most of them would be good!!

So the plan is to run a programme for 10 days (Saturdays or Sundays to be arranged) from 13/4/13. Sorry if this is a little short notice.

The firm aim would be to encourage people to start to take part in the Sunday sailing after say the first month of sessions.

We can try to give help to; people wanting to crew; people wanting to start on the helm and will try to cover catamarans/ monohulls or cruisers and indeed people interested helping with the rescue ribs.

The idea will be to run a short training session each weekend covering a number of aspects of starting sailing. When the weather and tides are suitable this would involve on the water sessions and when not suitable we would do land sessions. I stress these would be informative but informal sessions.

We can start this Sunday with an introduction session and a bit of planning for the following weeks.

Please can you let me know if you are interested and if you could attend on Sunday say 1100 for an introduction session.

Best regards
