Thank you to everyone who generously donated to the fund to replace the broken TV in the Sea Room. We reached our target, and now have a brand new TV on the wall!

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 sailing.secretary@wyc.org.uk 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!
