Club Championships Official Results

Unfortunately there has been an error in the results for the club championships last weekend. The final official results are shown on the the Results page of this site. Although this has not altered the top two positions there are some changes to other leading positions and to the winners of the Tasar, Laser, Laser Radial and the Ladies trophies. The sailing secretary is trying to contact all those that have been affected.
We are very sorry for this error and apologise to those who have been disappointed by the changes. Procedures are now being changed to ensure that a similar mistake does not happen again.
Robert Govier
Rear commodore (Sailing)

Open Day Poster

Have you seen this poster around Whitstable, Canterbury and Herne Bay? We're trying to advertise the club Open Day on Saturday 8th June as widely as possible to get people through the door to see what Whitstable Yacht Club can offer!
How can you help?
Spread the word... tell your friends, relatives and neighbours about the Open Day. If they've ever been curious as to what you do on the weekend, now's their chance to find out!
Volunteer... we need members to be at the club on the Saturday to answer questions and show people around. Don't worry if your not sure about details about the club... we'll be providing a briefing sheet with all you need to know, and there'll be officers of the club available all day. All you need to do is smile and be positive! If you're available, tell your Class Captain or put your name on the list at the bar.
Go sailing... If you're not able to volunteer, head out onto the water. The more people using the club, the better the impression that the visitors will take away of our club!

Ullman Sails B14 Nationals - Final Results

Congratulations to Mike Bees and Martin Worth from Brightlingsea Sailing Club who won the Ullman Sails B14 Nationals at Whitstable Yacht Club this weekend. With three firsts and three seconds the pair were over 10 points ahead of the second placed boat of Mark Watts and Chris Bishop of Team Ullman Sails from Weston Sailing Club, who beat the third placed boat of Tim Harrison and Jonny Ratcliffe by only a point! 25 boats sailed in the 3 races on Friday and 4 races on Sunday, with competitors coming from as far away as La Rochelle to sail at the Whitstable event. Good luck to all of the B14 sailors heading out to the Worlds in Plérin, France in just under 2 months time! Many thanks to the Whitstable Yacht Club volunteers and staff who helped the event run smoothly. For the full results click here.

Andrew Simpson

Many of us have been sailing for a long time, but few reach the pinnacle of winning an Olympic medal. Some of us have been lucky enough to meet British sailor Andrew 'Bart' Simpson and found him the most modest of Olympians. Sadly he died yesterday whilst training on the AC72 Artemis in San Francisco Bay. The members of Whitstable Yacht Club send our condolences to his family at this sad time.

Spring Meeting Of Sailors

The Spring Meeting of Sailors will take place on Sunday 19th May, at 2pm (or as soon after that as club racing allows). The meeting is an opportunity for sailors to discuss the sailing and racing at Whitstable Yacht Club and have their views aired. The meeting will be chaired by the Rear Commodore (Sailing), and we encourage anyone who sails to come along and have their say. Click through for the agenda. More ›

Committee boat starts for club racing

Members should note that we will be using our new temporary committee boat with effect from next Saturday 4 May. As the tide will be low the course will be laid well offshore to avoid shallows so sailors should allow more time to get to the start line. The starting sequence will be as normal (see club sailing instructions)

** Advanced Warning of Drainage Works To Be Carried Out At WYC **

To commence TUESDAY 28 May 9am for approximately 1 week. The work is to replace drainage piping along side of the club. This will thankfully mean very little inconvenience to WYC. So the ladies toilets & showers will be ok to use. I have confirmed this with the company carrying out the work. Any disruptions will be advised of on the day.
