Open Winter Series


This winter we are teaming up with our neighbours at West Kirby to run a Winter Series on the estuary. There will be 2 races back to back on each date with a prize giving afterwards. The racing is open to catamarans and dinghies and entry is free! There will be separate starts for Cats, Dinghies with a PY greater than 1701 and those with a PY of less than 1700. See the poster for dates and start times.

Winter Sailing

Last weekend saw that last races of the laying up series with several boats braving the cold but sunny condition to work off their Christmas Dinner from the night before.

The juniors were in action too with an IOCCA Winter training session on the 30th November at Leigh and Lowton SC. Athena and Eve had a great time practising hiking and racing techniques in their Optimists.

Thanks to Sue Moruzzi and WKSC for the photos.

There is more winter sailing in the programme for the rest of December. A Catamaran Coaching session is planned for the 12th December and a Festive Frolic on the 29th December.



Commodores Cruise

This years Commodores Cruise on Saturday 13th  July. It’s one of the best events of the year, when we blast out of the estuary on the morning tide to Hilbre Island and wait patiently for the sand bank to magically appear, spend the day relaxing with our friends from Hoylake & West Kirby S.C.s and intermittently sailing around on beautiful flat water, before sailing back to Dee in the evening on the flooding tide.

Details this year are as follows:

  • Leave the beach at Dee no later than 10:30.
  • The bar will be coming out, don’t forget cash.
  • Some BBQ’s will be set up, so bring some food to cook.
  • And don’t forget to bring a supply of water, snacks and suncream.

As well as sailing out, members and friends can walk out to the other side of Hilbre to get picked up by a RIB, but you must have a buoyancy aid. Either arrange this with someone who you know will be out there or email me on a few days before.

Fingers crossed for the weather!!
