Open Day

27th April, 11:00 - 16:00

On Saturday 27 April the club will be running an Open Day in parallel with Practice Sailing. This will be an opportunity to open our gates and show the public and potential new members what a family friendly club we are and what fun and fulfilling activities we provide. We will be offering an opportunity for our visitors to try sailing and rowing. By providing two Practice Sailing sessions on the same day, members rigging, launching, and sailing their dinghies will demonstrate the club's raison d'ĂȘtre. The day will also enable club members, especially the newer ones, to meet the Committee and other helpers.

Introduction to sailing and rowing sessions will run from 11:00. We will provide two large club dinghies, each helmed by an experienced dinghy helm. We will also have the club Gig operating under the supervision of our Gig Monitors. Sailing and rowing trips will run on an ad hoc basis to meet the demand. Each on-water sailing session is expected to last no more than 20 minutes. Rowing sessions might be slightly longer.

Practice Sailing will run from 11:00 to 12:30 and from 14:00 to 15:30.

From approximately 10:30 to 13:00, Stubbington Fish & Chips Vintage Trailer will be parked nearby with a selection of drinks and snacks. Check out the menu, here.

Volunteers are required to act as coordinator, Gig mentor, shore crew, beach crew, patrol boat helm and crew, and tractor driver. We also need some experienced helms for the dinghies. You may volunteer to cover the morning (10:30-13:30) or afternoon (13:30-16:30) session, or both. If you would like to help and you are already Logged in, you will see the list below. Simply click on the appropriate Volunteer button. If you consider yourself to be an "experienced helm" but can see no Volunteer button for this role, contact Terence, our Vice Commodore.

If you have an hour or two to spare on Saturday 27 April, even if you have not volunteered to help and do not intend to sail, why not just turn up on the day and help spread cheer?

At the end of the day, members can unwind with another of Tony and Mandy Nicholls' popular Quiz and Bingo nights with an accompanying fish and chip supper.

Should you have any questions, please contact Tim, our Membership Secretary.
