    We will be running a number of evening sailing refresher/improver sessions in May/June.

    These sessions will last around one and a half hours and are aimed at adult sailors who wish to refresh their level 2 skills or work towards level 3 or one of the advanced modules such as "Sailing with Spinnakers" or "Seamanship"

    There will be a small cost (T.B.A.)

     

    Keep an eye out on the website for more details!

    bartThe Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation is planning a monster sized attempt to set a new Guinness World Record for 'The Largest Sailing Event in the World', which they are calling 'Bart's Bash'!



    The idea is to have a mass participation club race across the UK and the whole World. Pretty much every club has a race on Sunday morning, with all kinds of boats taking part and the goal is to get everyone participating together to create one big event race. OSC intends to join the hundreds of clubs taking part.  With just their normal sailors racing on the water, the event will generate thousands of Guinness World Record Holders in Andrew 'Bart' Simpson's name. Watch our website for regular  updates of how OSC is getting involved. In the meantime go to:


    http://www.bartsbash.co.uk/


    for lots more information about the event. We anticipate a £5.00 entry fee payable through the OSC website with proceeds going to the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation so start saving your pennies now!

    The Work is all but complete, we had a fantastic turnout to help wheelbarrow the concrete to the new shoreline - this is where the wheelchairs are brought on to, so the  sailfree participant's can board the access boats, this should be a great help with the smooth ramp and a bigger frontage.

    Thank you to everyone who helped throughout the winter no matter how big or small the contribution every little bit helps.

    It is a club requirement that all powerboat drivers, including instructors, undertake a brief refresher session each season before commencing any powerboat driving. The refresher session takes about 30 minutes and covers the basic elements of powerboat handling that members will be familiar with from their level 2 course.


    Last season over 30 club members completed their refresher and we hope to have a similarly high take-up this year. Refresher sessions will be available from Sunday 30th Mar 2014 onwards and club members wanting an assessment should simply speak to any of our PowerBoat instructors  to book a session with them.


    Please note that you will not be able to use a club powerboat until you have completed your refresher.

    Great turn out for the working parities. 2 February saw spring like conditions. Buoys removed for cleaning, works started to raise pontoon on the island and shoreline works for improved disabled access. Reeds were being pulled out, dinghy park de clutter & measuring out for the new dinghy pen extension.
