Formerly WoW – Men Now Welcome!
This group is open to all those who have mastered the basics of sailing and wish to hone their skills midweek. It offers coached practice time on the water in a relaxed and supportive setting. There is mutual help with rigging and launching, tea and cake, and time to chat as well as go sailing.
We usually have a club member as coach, occasionally we have a professional RYA coach, or we just go sailing with one of the group in a safety boat.
If you don’t own a boat, and can’t borrow the kids’, you can hire one of the club boats for the day.
If you are a beginner, we suggest you sign up for one of the RTC courses through CYC office first, then come to Midweek Sailors to gain experience.
The sessions run on weekdays typically twice a month between April and October. Depending on tides, we usually gather at about 10am and disperse about 2pm, but timings are flexible and you can come and go when you please. You just need to let the coordinator or the CYC office know 48 hours in advance if you’ll be coming along to play.
Midweek Sailors is good fun, good practice, and great for building confidence. If you are new to the club it is a perfect way to get to know others, for existing experienced members, please come along to welcome and support them!
So, if you’re not brave enough to try club racing yet, are a little rusty, want to gain confidence when it’s blowing, or simply get out on the water for some midweek practice, then come along and join the fun!
If you are interested in joining us, then please contact the CYC office so that we can add your name to the distribution list. We look forward to meeting you!
