WoW – Women on Water

wow

Why should the chaps and kids have all the fun?

Make time on Thursday evenings to come and join a bunch of like minded ladies having fun on the water in our beautiful location.

No need for experience, just a willingness to muck in and get a bit wet whilst keeping that grin on your face.

Oh, and a nice meal to top off the evening. What’s not to like?

Our start of season sign on evening will be on Thursday 26 April from 7.30-9pm.

We will outline our plans for the season and also talk about how members can get involved in supporting the sessions.

We have planned for 13 sailing sessions from May to July, irrespective of tide and weather conditions, so should be another good year full of fun, sailing, wine and good food!

What it is? An opportunity for women in a supportive group:

  • To learn how to sail and race (May – July)
  • To race for the Cindy Bloor WOW Trophy (19 July)
  • Celebration and awards evening (6 Sept)
How to join? **Come to our SIGN ON NIGHT Thursday 26th April 7.30-9pm to enrol, and catchup with nibbles and drinks**
New changes? WOW participation is £100 plus single social membership £40. There’s now no extra charge for hire of club boats. It is important to note this allows you to sail only on Thursday evenings.

Full sailing members (£149 – single member) can sail in addition at all other times as detailed in FSC programme, and can hire club boats at WOW at a cost of £5 per session.

When? Every Thursday throughout May, June and July irrespective of weather and tide conditions. Theory sessions will be run if sailing is not possible.

Arrive to rig the boats from 5.30

To be on the on the water for 6.45

Who can take part?  

All women wishing to do more sailing.

Also open to those wishing to socialise whilst watching the sailing and sunset, or wanting to help prepare a meal.

What else is included? A chance to share a glass of wine and have a meal together following the sailing at a cost of £5 per meal at about 8.30.

We need help preparing post sailing meal- sign up at the club if you are interested in sharing your culinary skills.

AND ANOTHER THING….
