Sorry folks due to the wind strength all racing is abandoned today
Looks like a beaut night for Friday night sailing tonight folks! An incoming tide and a light northerly. We aim to start on the water at 5pm so hope to see you there by 4.30pm.
This might be the best chance to get out and sail this weekend as Sunday looks like it might be rather windy at this stage (although this may well change)
Don’t forget to text Fish and chips orders to Liz on 0274 909955 by 6.00pm if you are staying for dinner and the club night afterwards. All members are welcome of course!
The season is just starting which means it’s time to think about ordering some amazing club branded clothing. Please complete the online order form by the end of October to get your branded gear
A light northerly and a very small tidal range made a beaut first race last Sunday. 24 Juniors and Seniors all started together from the clubhouse. Huge thanks to all the volunteers who were out there making it happen! Check out the results on the Racing page. A few photos are available on Facebook.
Our club offers coaching for a range of classes and levels of development. For detailed information on sailing and training opportunities available to our junior sailors check out PBC Junior Sailing Programme 2017-18

The doors open at 5.30, dinner is at 6.30 and the briefing will start around 7.30. Unscheduled merriment can occur at any time.

Come and help us out on the water and learn how to operate our rescue boats safely! We need you. It is important to do the training so we are all safe. It is honestly not that hard, but there are some important things to know. We have the first theory lesson starting on Wed 30 Aug at 7.30pm, the practical lesson will be the following Sunday at 1.30pm. The same format repeats 2 weeks later. Even if you have been driving boats for a while you are encouraged to come and contribute to the discussion and learning.
The dates are:
Wed 30 Aug 7.30pm to 9:00pm
Sun 3 Sep 1.30pm to 4pm
Wed 13 Sep 7.30pm to 9:00pm

With the season opening on the weekend of 1 Oct it is time to renew your membership folks.
