Official Event Notice Board Click Here.Arriving before the event
If you are arriving the day or evening before the event, you are welcome to use the water the afternoon before the event, if conditions permit and as guests of the Club. It is imperative that you talk to the Club Manager or on-duty bosun before going afloat.
Unload your boat in the drop off areas usually marked ‘B’ and ‘D’ but please follow the signs. This is an area for you to pull into while unhitching and unloading your boat. Do not park here any longer than necessary as it can get very congested. Your kit can be dropped off at the clubhouse on your way back to the car park and, please remember not to drive on any slipways.Car Parking
After unhitching and unloading your boat, please drive your car back past the clubhouse and visitor centre, and park either in the main Pay & Display car park or in the Sailing Club car park at the bottom of the hill. Competitors must NOT park anywhere else other than these car parks. Any visitor whose car is parked elsewhere will be liable to disqualification.
THE ACCESS ROAD MUST BE KEPT CLEAR AT ALL TIMES –EVEN WHEN UNLOADING OR PACKING UP YOUR BOAT.Campervans
Campervans and caravans should be parked at the far end of the Sailing Club car park. There may be a charge at larger events as we employ parking marshals, and this would be noted in the event information.
They must not be parked in the main pay & display car park or anywhere else on the site. No tent camping is allowed on site.Event Schedule
For details of timing, please see your event’s Notice of Race. Registration will typically be in the upstairs lounge of the Clubhouse. Please ensure that you have registered, entered and paid before going afloat.Safety
Your safety is paramount. Due to the nature of the foreshore, there may be some large stones in the water, please take care when launching and retrieving. The water is not open unless the orange flag is flying from the mast outside the clubhouse. Please speak to the bosun if you wish to sail outside the times of the competition. If you are requested to go ashore by the bosun or rescue staff please do so immediately, and please remember people’s safety is ALWAYS prioritised over boats or equipment.Catering
The Wet Bar will be open during the course of the day, offering hot and cold drinks, snacks and hot meals. It may be necessary to pre-order lunches before going out on the water.
The Lounge Bar will usually be open late afternoon and evening and an evening meal may be available –see your event’s NOR. Wet gear and kit is not allowed in the upstairs Lounge, please use the Wet Bar at ground level.Access to Site
The entrance gate is closed at night (times vary according to season). Once closed, you cannot gain access to the site but can exit by driving up to the right-hand side of the closed gate.
