Club News - April

Reminder - Evening Series starts this Wednesday. Early start for the first race.

The 2018 Evening Series starts this Wednesday. The series is all-in handicap, and a great way to split up the working week!
It's starting a little earlier than usual this year, so the first race has a 6.30pm start. The series then returns to the usual 7pm starts from 9th May.

Bar Opening Times - Thursday and Friday

As we're hosting the 505 National Championships this week the bar will be open from midday to at least 11pm on Thursday and Friday (no afternoon closure or early Thursday eve closure). Great opportunity to come and welcome our guests from the 505 class and watch the racing! The bar will be open as usual on Saturday and Sunday.

Changing Rooms

We've had reports of items going missing from the WYC changing rooms. We'd like to remind members to keep their valuables safe, and make sure that the changing room doors are kept closed and secured by the code locks. If you see anything suspicious, please report it. There are lockers available in both the male and female changing rooms, please contact Sally at if you're interested.

New club Topper and Topaz dinghies for Training, Cadets and for sale!

New Toppers!
WYC Training and Topper International have teamed up to enhance the club's fleet with three brand new Toppers and five brand new Topper Topaz dingies for the club to use for Training and Cadet activities - a fantastic addition, which will allow our training offerings to grow even further this year, for adults and children alike.
At the recent Cadet Fitting Out morning, the club's younger sailors had a great time getting them out the packets and setting them up. Thank you to everyone who helped out.
To help finance the deal, the club will act as a 'show room' for the boats, which can be purchased from us at a discounted rate of £2,549 for a Topaz and £2,649 for a Topper 5.3 (smaller sails 4.2 are also available). The deal includes a launching trolley and top cover, giving savings of up to £851 on manufacturer list price. As part of the package you will get training support throughout the season, and a 3-hour training session for FREE!

There are a large number of wetsuits and other gear that was removed from the men's changing rooms during the recent works. This kit will be disposed of at the end of April if not claimed. If you think any of it could be yours, please contact the club office.
