Coming Up ....

Winter membership - now available and for less than annual subs. Please see How to Join page.

Bic Techno Formula Board - £125. See here for more details.

PLEASE ... use the Shoutbox if you're planning to sail. Some members/visitors are reluctant to venture up to the club if it appears no-one else will be sailing. Using the Shoutbox will get more people on the water - more sociable and safer! To register for the shoutbox, if you're new to the club, or a prospective new member, or maybe you've just forgotten your password, then please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so you can get in touch with other members or plan your visit. Scammers need not apply!

Bathing Water results - see here if you want to know whether the water at the coastal location you plan to visit is clean or not. The 2018 results, like 2017, show West Kirby has Excellent water quality and Fleetwood is Good. Bear in mind though that testing for bathing waters is only carried out during the Summer months, so the water may be a little worse when we visit these places. Risk of pollution is highest after heavy rain. That's due to sewer overflows - you've been informed!

I'll give it a miss too, then. hope the forecst for tuesday holds up.

John L - 08/12/2019 - 09:53

Met Office says 6C so bit too cold for me today. F6 gusting 8 is a bit wild too. Tues is next prospect - mild but just as wild.

davemonks - 05/12/2019 - 22:07
