WoW – Women on Water

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?

Details of the 2020 offering will be available soon.

What it is? An opportunity for novice women in a supportive group to learn the basics over eight weeks of informal sessions.

For improvers to do just that – improve sailing.

  • To race for the Cindy Bloor WOW Trophy
  • Celebration and awards evening

Useful information FSC is a small club run by members for the members.

Members who are sailing are required to have Full Sailing Membership and are required to carry out four duties across the season.

There are various open meetings (where visiting sailors come and race at our club) as well as visiting groups (Scouts and Guides) where help is required to facilitate these events from making tea in the kitchen, signing visitors into the club, pulling boats up the ramp and just being around to meet and greet visitors. It is a great way to meet people and see behind the scenes of these events.

See Felpham Sailing Club at www.felphamsailingclub.co.uk website for more details of exciting forthcoming training courses and development opportunities, including Start Sailing weekend courses, Race Training and Skills Saturday.
