The Club comprises of a large secure compound with a clubhouse and boatshed and includes berthing for approximately 100 boats of varying sizes. The clubhouse includes ladies and gents changing room facilities; a well appointed dry bar; wet bar and galley, which provide food on race days during the season and of course the bar is open on Friday evenings for “Club Night”. This provides an opportunity for prospective new members to come and meet some of the regulars.
Other facilities include three safety boats, which are fitted out with marine radios, first aid kits and related safety equipment. A race office (the "squarehead") is maintained on the seafront at the top of the slipway, which provides the necessary framework for running racing events. The sailing season traditionally runs from the middle of March to the end of October (weather permitting!).
As can be imagined, a club does not run itself and all members are expected to take some part in the many hundreds of tasks which are necessary to ensure that it continues to function and indeed improve. Rosters are organised to cover Race Officer and safety boat duties for sailing activities and a bar rota to cover Friday Club Night. Volunteers are always required to help in the galley for the many functions which are held throughout the season and, of course, the work parties which are organised prior to the sailing season to maintain the sailing equipment and the clubhouse. Please make sure you do your bit!
The management of the Club is carried out on a volunteer basis by the elected Club Officials.
