Upcoming Races          

Our Racing Series is well under way. We just need better weather to make it more enjoyable! The new Sailing Programme is available under Racing on the home page. Results are to be found under the “Results”tab. A quick preview of the next few weeks is below. 

Youth Training 

Our Beginners sailing (May half term) and improvers training (Thursday evenings) is set up and available to book. See the Youth Sailing and Youth Training pages. Club Members can book in via WebCollect. 

Adult Coaching

We have set a number of Sunday mornings aside for Adult Coaching. These align to the junior squad days so that parents can come and sail at the same time and have some support and coaching. The sessions will include a “Relaxed Introduction to Racing” so that they can enter the odd race and not be worried about being in the way or being too incompetent. See the Adult Sailing and improving pages. 

Club Racing 

The club holds regular racing.  See what's coming up next.

Sailing and not Racing. 

Club members are allowed to sail when the club is not racing. However, the safety cover is through Llandegfedd Activities, not the club. 

For 2024, Hannah at Llandegfedd Activities has decided that the best way for us to sail when not racing, is just to talk to the Watersports Team. 

Before you rig a boat, either your own, or a club one, check that that Watersports is able to support your sailing. There is always someone in their office and they have a list of their activities and the lead Instructor for the day.  They may impose restrictions, such as keeping to one end of the reservoir so they can rescue you if you have difficulties.  You need to say you are a Sailing Club member, and have a berth or are using a club boat. 

They are helpful, just bear in mind that they can be very busy with multiple activities there. There may be a break at lunch time, and they are closing up by 1700 most days.

Need a Helm or Crew?

Robert Cone is re-introducing the Crewfinder service. If you want a crew for your boat, or want a helm, contact Robert at crewfinder@llandegfedd.org.uk. He will put you in touch as appropriate so we can have more boats on the water.
