Social events

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

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!

8th July - Antiques Roadshow


Saturday, 8th July, at 6pm

Most of us have something old and special: jewellery, pottery, a piece of glass, a picture or a small piece of furniture, inherited or bought, but we don't know its history or value. So, bring them along to the Club, where we have invited local antiques expert, James Fletcher, to examine them and share his expertise.
You never know, you may have a fortune sitting in a drawer, on a shelf or wall!

Please bring items to the Club by 6pm when a Friday-style BBQ (courtesy of Di and Peter Chilvers) will be available. The bar opens from 5.30pm and James Fletcher, our antiques expert, will discuss and value items after examining them from 7pm.

It would be helpful if you could pre-register and send a photo and short description of the item/s you intend to bring to the Social Secretary by 1st July.


29th July - Second sands BBQ

Walk, sail or row along to the beach for a BBQ.

Bring the family,

Bring the dog and

Bring the food, of course!

“Second Sands” is a beach about 800 metres down stream from the Butt & Oyster reachable by waterborne craft 2 hrs. either side of high water which is about 17.00 BST on the day.

5th August - Wine tasting & BBQ

FREE WINE TASTING followed by BBQ £5 a head

Saturday, 5th August, 7.30 for 8pm

Following the success of last year's Wine Tasting, attended by 70 members, we have invited the Co-op, which is gaining a reputation for its Fair Trade wines, to host another special tasting in the Club by one of their experts. You can pick your favourites to be held in the Bar.

Julian Ackland has kindly volunteered to reprise his excellent BBQ at just £5 a head.

Come early to claim your place!

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.
