Well new to us anyway. We have bought, secondhand, four very durable, indeed most people would describe them as bullet proof, Ezzy Wave Panther sails from 4.0m² up to 5.5m².

Club members will have already received an email about this however if you are thinking of joining the club, you’d be welcome to come along also.

We are planning on going either the 15th or 22nd of June, though 15th June is looking favourite at the moment. Going a little later than last year we hope to get some of the better wind, though prices will be higher. We will be going with either OceanElements or Neilson, as Club Vass looks to be booked up. both centres offer daily tuition and a good range of kit. Both these centres have dinghies as well as mountain bikes, sups, canoes etc. Both packages are B&B unlike Club Vass. We expect the price to be in the £600-650 mark though it could be a little less or indeed a little more depending on the group size

Slipway Completion

Easy access to the lake for the boat.

Easy access to the lake for the boat.

A huge thanks to everyone who turned out on the 22nd June to help with phase 2 of the slipway.

Yes it is over a year since we attempted to do this first time round, but the weather we had on the first day and the rotten summer and winter since then have made it impossible to contemplate having a JCB driving around churning up the grass. Thankfully its dried out and, with the exception of a bit of tidying up, it is now complete.

We had a huge work schedule organised for the day, including making a barrier to prevent nutters driving onto the rigging area and churning it up just for their amusement, and we got the most important bits done. We know the area around the toilets is a bit soggy so we want to address that, plus we need to lay some roadstone in front of the boat lockup, and we all know how poor the track down from the gate is, so…….
