Want to know what’s happening at CSC? Join us on WhatsApp

To make it even easier for members to find out what’s happening at Croydon Sailing Club, we’ve created a new WhatsApp group.

The group is used to keep members up-to-date with things like social events and opening times for free sailing (recreational/non-race sailing), and can be used to help facilitate DO and ADO swaps if you find you’re unable to make it to the lake.

If you’re on WhatsApp but aren’t currently a member of the CSC group, contact us with your mobile number and we’ll get you added.

If you don’t already have WhatsApp, it’s completely free and you can get it here.

Too many notifications? Don’t leave, just mute

While we make every effort not to overwhelm the WhatsApp group with messages, if you decide that you’d like to follow the conversation without beeps and alerts, don’t forget that you can always mute the group and just dip in when you see something interesting or need to ask a question.

WHY NOT TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO VISIT GREENWICH YACHT CLUB FOR THE LONDON REGATTA

Dinghy racing will take place on a series of courses marked out in the River Thames between the Thames Barrier and the Emirates Cable Car.

This is the day the Thames Barrier will operate its annual full closure test from 08.25 to 18.25. The River Thames will temporarily be a non-tidal waterway and commercial traffic will be unable to sail up and down it. This makes it a unique and safe day once a year for dinghy sailors race on this stretch of the Thames in a great festival atmosphere.

 ANYONE WISHING TO TAKE PART SHOULD CONTACT Andy  AT cROROYDON SAILING CLUB  TO REGISTER  AS YOU HAVE TO TAKE YOUR OWN BOATS
