to Spinnaker Sailing Club, the home of sailing in the New Forest.
Spinnaker Sailing Club is the perfect venue for members and training members to develop their sailing skills in a safe, friendly environment. As an RYA recognised training centre, Spinnaker Sailing Club has highly qualified instructors and coaches waiting to help you achieve your sailing ambitions, whatever your age or ability.
Whether your wish is to race in a competitive sailing fleet, cruise around a beautiful lake, introduce your children to sailing or simply enjoy a lovely environment, Spinnaker Sailing Club is the first choice.
Look around our web site and find out about our club sailing, the activities available to learn how to sail for children and adults, plus the many opportunities for everyone to join our members in their love of sailing.
Spinnaker Sailing Club also has many group members including New Forest & District Sailability, Southampton, Bournemouth and Solent Universities and local scout troops.
Our Commodore Simon Walworth apologises for not being able to attend the Summer Fair on Sunday, however he fell of his push bike! Luckily he is not badly hurt, just a little battered and bruised. He hopes to be back at the Club in the very near future. For anyone who doesn’t know, Simon also fell off his bike last August and badly damaged his shoulder resulting in several operations, hence the reason you will not have seen him on the water this year. We think Simon should stick to sailing and give up the cycling!!!
The Spinnaker Summer fair is fast approaching and we would love to have more help running the stalls, even half an hour would be greatly appreciated.
Important information regarding the stalls are as follows:
NAUTICAL BRIC A BRAC
For those who have Sailing clothes, boat equipment surplus to require we are holding a Nautical Bric a Brac stall, so please bring along any unwanted items for sale, please could they be labelled with your name and price you are asking – 10% of the proceeds will go to the club.
For those wanting to join in the fun we are having a pirate theme fancy dress – prize for the best dressed so would love to see some lovely ideas. Adults can join in too! Remember you have to be able to sail in it!
Please could we have some donations of cakes on the day for our stall to sell to our hungry pirates! All proceeds from this stall will go to Macmillian.
For the sailors/ beginner sailors there are going to be fun races for all to be involved in so please come and support the club. Tea and Cakes will be provided during prize giving.
Update: Alteration of start times for Summer Series 1
Please be advised that, following requests to the sailing committee, the Solo class will be given a separate start during Summer Series 1. The remainder of the boats will start in a handicap fleet as before.
Separate results, and prizes will be rewarded to recognise this split.
The earliest start times and sequence for that series are therefore amended to the following:
If this format proves to be successful, than it will be reconsidered for following series.
