A lack of wind on Saturday provided a drama-free day’s racing with certain sailors deciding it might be faster to get off and push... Sunday’s racing was busy and a little more exciting and, once again, our intrepid Oppies were out there for the Cutmill Spring Series.
The club was packed on Saturday night for the St George’s Dinner which was greatly enjoyed and a suitably enthusiastic rendition of Jerusalem proved that we should stick to sailing.
Now for some VERY IMPORTANT NEWS!

Keeping your Youth occupied over the Summer!
Becoming an RYA dinghy instructor is a great way to keep your older children over 16 occupied over the summer. There's an instructor course being run at the club in the week starting July 2nd, this should be after the exam period for most. Once they are qualified, they can then find work around the various clubs and centres in the harbour, and potentially abroad.
To become an RYA instructor, candidates need to
- pass a pre entry sailing test
- possess a valid First Aid award approved by the RYA
- hold an RYA powerboat Level 2 qualification and
- study the online safeguarding course.
The course itself is run in the Club's Bahias and Fevas July 2 to 6 Monday to Friday 0900 to 1700 at a cost of £300.
To register interest please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and booking is via the website.
