Free Sailing on Sunday morning, 09:30-11:00

Thanks to Catherine and Janice we are delighted to announce that the gates to the boat park will now be open from 9:30am on Sunday mornings until the end of October, with the exception of  28th August  for any members wishing to rig up a boat up early and enjoy some free sailing while our regular racers get ready for the first race at 11am.

No one will be allowed on the water until the duty officer, an instructor or a suitably experienced senior member of the club arrives at approximately 10am and the safety boat is available.

There will be free sailing until 10:50am, when all boats need to be off the water in time for the start of the first race at 11am.

If you would like to stay on the water after 11am, you are more than welcome to join the race. If you’re a new member that’s worried about getting in everyone’s way, don’t be! Just do your best to follow the course (and the basic race rules) and our regular racers are happy to help if you have any questions.

Members are advised to check the website the preceding Saturday for last minute changes.

If you’d like to sail during a race: join the race!

With two or more opportunities for free/non-race sailing currently available every week at CSC, we now ask that any members that would like to sail during a race join the race.

New and novice members have nothing to worry about: CSC’s racers are a friendly bunch and always happy to offer hints and tips to anyone that asks, and remember that you’re under no obligation to win, all we ask is that you do your best to follow the course and the basic race rules. Joining a race is a great way to hone your skills and learn from more experienced members and if you get stuck at bog and get in everyone’s way, that’s fine, we’ve all been there and it’s all part of the unique racing experience here at CSC.

DOs, don’t forget to ask (politely, of course) all non-racing members to head back to the jetty before the race begins.
