Social events

We offer a great variety of social events throughout the year, but mainly focused outside of the sailing season.

Social update


Congratulations to Diane and Peter Chilver who won the £10 Pets at Home voucher when their cat, Felix was picked out by our young judges, Christine Cook's grandson and his girlfriend.

Thanks to everyone who submitted their delightful photos and stories of their pets, and what they mean to them.


Thanks again to everyone who baked a cake for the May Bank Holiday Cakefest (it appears that some thank you emails disappeared into the ether), which raised £80 for the RNLI. Barely a crumb remained!

Friday BBQs

Starting from Friday May 5th, Di and Peter will be firing up the BBQ from 17:30 every Friday and cooking to order burgers and hot dogs - both meat and veggi - for just £1 each!


If that is not enough, there will also be FREE SQUASH DRINKS for children!

26th August - Table top sale

There will be a Table Top Sale at the Club on Saturday 25th August from 1100 to 1500. Tables are available to members, for a fee of £5, for the sale of bric-a-brac, DVDs, boat jumble, unwanted household items – in fact, anything you like.

A great opportunity to get rid of the clutter in the garage or the stuff in the attic. There will also be a sale of surplus library books with many bargains to be had.

Entry to the sale is free and non-members will be welcome. The bar will be open from 1200 to 1500.

To book a table please contact me at
