Stairs to Upper Rigdens Shed closed

Due to ongoing works to paint Rigdens Shed, the stairs to Upper Rigdens Shed will be closed from Tuesday to Friday this week, and so access to the upper shed will be very limited.

Thank you…

On behalf of all members I would like to thank Fef Griffin and her family for the very generous donation of a new fully equipped high spec training rib donated in memory of her late husband Peter, an active member of the club and valued contributor to the training of our up and coming young sailors. The rib will be delivered during the summer and will be used by the training team in support of their various courses and activities. The rib will be named the ‘Peter Griffin’.

WYC Open Day - Thank You!

Open Day 2019
A really big thank you to all of the volunteers who helped out with the WYC Open Day on Saturday 11th May. We out 65 people on the water to try out sailing, and we lost count of the huge grins which our visitors were wearing as they came ashore! A very successful day all round.
And if you couldn't make it, or you know someone who'd be interested in sailing, then there's lots of information on our website including
membership information and details on the training we have available. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
