Sailing Event applications

- All Members individually must apply to go on sailing events. This is done online when logged in by using the Register button shown on the particular event page. There is a general cut-off date for applications of 7 days before sailing events (some may be longer). After that date you can contact the event organiser who may still be able to fit you in.

Applications are made as either as a Skipper or a Crew member. Skippers may include non-members as Guests on their applications. An email will be sent confirming the application to both the member and the event organiser.

Social Event applications

Members can apply and also add guests who can also be other Club members. The events often involve  a payment which is easily paid using the on-line facility.

Note: if you have to cancel your application then you must contact the event organiser directly - there is no online facility to do it.

     North West Passage - Nigel Barraclough 

    The North West Passage – who found it and who didn’t.

    The North West passage in the Artic north of Canada: a fabled alternative route to the east has been the subject of controversy, claims that were unfounded but more importantly the true “discoverer” was vilified and never given the credit by the Establishment – arguably still doesn’t.

    Nigel Barraclough will talk about the history and one of the (conveniently) forgotten heroes of Artic exploration.

    (Free entry - A collection will be held at the end of the talk to support the club and clubs nominated charity).

    Singapore Sling goes to the Baltic Swedish archipelago, the Gota Canal, and the Danish archipelago.

    Continuing on from last year we look at the challenges of sailing amongst 2000 islands and 20,000 rocks, from Fehmarn in Germany to Sandhamn (near Stockholm) in Sweden.  We look at the merits of chart plotters versus charts.  Navigate through the Gota canal with 58 locks to go up 91.8 m (and down again) plus 70 mile lakes, and finally check out a trip down the west coast of Sweden from Gothenburg, onto Copenhagen and finally back to Fehmarn in Germany. 

    Dick Beddoe and various crew completed the trip in the summer of 2018 and will inspire you to visit this stunningly beautiful part of the world. 

    (Free entry - A collection will be held at the end of the talk to support the club and clubs nominated charity).
