Our last race of the 2018 Season will once again be the 'Christmas Cracker' Pursuit race. So, add a little festive cheer to yourself and your boat and join us in one of the highlights of the winter season. The race will take place on Sunday 16th December at 11am and is open to all club members. Last year there was good support from our youth academy and windsurfers, racing alongside the dinghy fleet. We do hope you will join us again this year for some super racing and maybe a mince pie or two in the bar afterwards!

Congratulations to all of those completing our 'Start Windsurfing' course this weekend. The sun shone and a light oscilating breeze was perfect for getting to grips with this fantastic sport. We hope to see you back on the water at Foremark soon. Our Friday windsurfing club runs weekly throughout the summer from 5pm.

RS Tera Inlands 2018

Written by
We have had a fabulous weekend hosting the RS Tera inlands this weekend at Burton Sailing Club. The weather has been perfect with a good breeze and plenty of sunshine! A huge 'Thank you' must go to all of our club members who generously gave up their time to help out. We received so many favourable comments from both parents and children saying how well organised the event was from arrival to departure! A superb effort from everyone in the Galley keeping the troups fed and watered, in the dinghy park, making sure the launching and recovery of so many…
***UPDATE*** We have now split the July course in to two parts. The 7th and 8th July can be booked seperately for those just wishing to complete level 1 These courses are great for anyone with little or no experience as an introduction to sailing and are unable to commit to all three weekends for the level 1&2 combined course. Our full level 2 courses (which combine level 1&2) are delivered by fully qualified RYA instructors in a fun relaxed manner over three weekends and is ideal for both adults and children.
