Watch the sailing club racers who braved winds gusting up to 35mph yesterday from the top of the mast !
Thanks to Paul who managed to attach his camera to the mast and didn’t have much time to prepare his dinghy sail in time for the race start . The camera was well secured and survived the capsize .
Click link to watch this short video to see the near collisions, rounding the buoy and what the mast does when you capsize !
Not been sailing this year as you don’ t like the cold? Stay in touch and come along to our social events next month:
Thursday March 2nd at 7:30 pm at the Waterside Centre by the lake for our annual chess night to battle for the title of 2017 Chess King or Queen.
There is a £3 pound entrance charge this year to cover the room hire costs and if everyone brings their preferred drink it should be a inexpensive night.
Join us on Saturday 11th March 7:30 at The Crown at 28 Wickham Rd Croydon CRO 8BA for our annual dinner.
A great night out in convivial company.
If you’re interested in either night, please contact Social Secretary, Robert.

The Level 2 course costs £150 to club members and priority for the 10 places is given to adults who have completed a level 1 course with the club.
Progress Your Sailing Sessions – During the Spring and Summer the Club plans to run regular sessions with a coach, specifically designed to help increase the confidence and skills of those members who started sailing recently. The aim is to help new sailors progress and get out on the water with other members to take up regular sailing.
