New season starts the Easter weekend!

A very keen Junior Committee and Management Committee have been busy behind the scenes, working hard to get everything in place for the new sailing season at Salterns!

Tidy up day is Saturday 24 March – come along and help if you can (the rugby will be on, with suitable refreshments!)

Salterns Sailing Club will open on Good Friday, 30 March, so that the children can enjoy sailing over the Easter weekend. There will be Afternoon Sailing on Saturday and Sunday 2-4pm, with induction sessions for new members on Saturday 31 March.

On Easter Sunday, members of the JC will be organising an Easter Egg Hunt, with lots of fun and games – be sure to check our Facebook Group for more information nearer the time.

New members – Induction Sessions

Just a quick reminder that the new member induction sessions will be held on 31 March and 15 April 2018.

These sessions are for all new members to come to the club for a couple of hours before the season starts to learn about the club and how it works. It is also a chance to meet the members of the committees and ask any questions.  All activities will be shore based – no sailing will take place. However, some of the activities take place outside so please come appropriately dressed. Both children and adults invited.

Please walk or cycle if you can to cut down on parking congestion. If you do drive, remember there is only limited parking and ensure emergency vehicles can get access to houses further along the lane if required. Thank you.

Tidy Up Day: 24 March

Please come and help prepare the club for the new season on Saturday 24 March.  Main jobs include clearing leaves, cleaning the windows and organising the boats, spars and foils.  Old clothes and wellies recommended.  Please bring rakes, trugs or barrows for carrying leaves.  Jobs for adults and children alike.

Welcome to 2018!

We’re all really looking forward to the 2018 season, and really can’t wait for it to begin. We’re working on the calendar for 2018, and hope to have it ready soon. In the meantime, here’s some great videos made by members that give a flavour of what we’ve been up to over the last couple of years.
