Pink Sailing

Pink Sailing was conceived and launched in 2012 as an opportunity for ladies who had either never set foot in a dinghy or else spent some time crewing for their other half but would really like to discover a bit more about their personal abilities.

The aim of Pink Sailing is to get all our ladies together so that we can have some fun on the water without the intense competition of racing. This year we will be meeting on Saturday mornings. We have organised safety, rigging, launching and retrieving help from our male sailors. We plan to achieve something every Saturday, independent of the weather.

Upcoming training

This year we will be meeting on Saturday mornings, starting on Saturday 7th May 2016, 9.30am.. We invite all ladies that have completed the training course to join us. The list of things we can achieve are as follows:

  • As much time on the water as possible. (Either single sailors or double handers.)
  • Learning to rig boats of different classes.
  • Learning to drive the tractor.
  • Sailing knots.
  • Simple, very basic rules of the water.
  • Learning to handle the safety boats and drive responsibly.
  • Terminology of all parts of the dinghies, the rigging and the sails.
  • Learn to use the club radios.
  • Learning how to run a race, setting courses etc.
  • Having fun is the most important rule of all.

What we do each Saturday will depend on the weather so a pre-planned program is not possible. All the dates are already in the club calendar at the link above. See you there

Kidz Klub

Members’ kids and grandkids are welcome but a responsible adult must stay with the child or children throughout the two-hour sessions. The aim is to get little ones on the water having fun using paddles and rudders - no sails. You will need to bring a complete change of clothing including shoes and socks. Life preservers are available but bring your own if you have them. No need to book, just turn up.
