The CDB’s were delighted to be back out on the water on Saturday and there was a great fleet of boats out across all the handicaps. They must have built up an appetite as the kitchen was really busy with Sailor’s Snacks. A few die-hards of that pluckiest of fleets, the Scows, braved Sunday’s windy conditions for another race in the Summer Series. All sorts of boats were out on Monday for the Robinson Trophy, Hobby Cup and the Oppie Cutmill Autumn Series.
That most prestigious of events, the Ian Proctor Centenary Rally and the Classic Boat Revival, is taking place this weekend and we will be hosting a Gala Dinner on Friday night, in place of our usual supper. Normal service will resume on Sunday when we will be running our snack and Sunday Lunch Summer Buffet. Menu can be seen here.
Not booked yet for the CDB Revival? You can still do so via the event’s website here. You will find all the info, the necessary forms and links to merchandise can be found there also.
If you aren’t sailing but would like to be part of this lovely event there are a number of volunteer duties that you can sign up for on Duty Man and your help will be very much appreciated:-

The Next Series of Women on the Water (Series 3) starts on Friday September 14 and lasts for 6 sessions including October 19 (just before half term). There will be 2 courses:
Women on Water - Start Sailing is a great, relaxed way for women to either take their first steps to becoming a sailor or to improve on sailing skills already acquired. You will learn to sail in a club Bahia with an instructor in the boat coaching you at your own pace and there is safety boat cover on the water. This is a great way to start sailing, or to get back into sailing if you haven’t been on the water for a time
Women on Water – Go Racing is a great, relaxed way for women to take their first steps to start racing or to improve on sail racing skills already acquired. Participants can sail the Club’s Fevas or use their own boat.
Both courses are available for sign up via the training section on the club website See here.
There are a variety of options depending whether the participant is a club member and if a club boat is used, so the cost for a club member and using a club boat is £180 for 6 sessions
