Castle Cove Sailing Club is an active and friendly, family club located on the north shore of Portland Harbour. From small beginnings in a cliff-top chalet in 1923, we have grown steadily and in September 2002 we moved to our present site at the end of Old Castle Road, Weymouth.

During the lead up to the Olympics in 2012 we have welcomed sailors from over 20 countries to join us and train at the club. We have a strong self-help ethos and run an extensive programme of racing for both dinghies and keelboats. In conjunction with our busy sailing calendar we have a full social diary taking pride in being a very friendly club, run by members for members.

Saturday 4 October 9am: Please help re-arrange the Dinghy Park ready for the autumn change-over

The Autumn changeover is upon us in readiness for the keelboat lift next week.

This will also be the opportunity to tidy our site and remove unwanted/ unclaimed clutter.

Any boats that have not paid for the P2 period will be removed from the boat park and the remainder moved to the west side.  Richard P has them all marked and ready to go and as Richard cannot be there on the day you have me back as guest organiser for the morning.

Boats that have not paid to stay must be collected as soon as possible, before Saturday if possible.  

If your boat is staying, and you are not down to help on the morning, then do arrange to check that your boat has been left secured as you would want as soon as possible.

Remaining Lasers will be put on the Laser racks that this year will stay in place (Hooray - thank you Richard P. and Barry S.).

Tenders must be removed, or left unchained, so they can be easily moved when the tender racks are stored.

It will help greatly if cradles are not brought onto the site before midday on Saturday.

Only one Kayak has paid for the autumn period, all other kayaks and sailboards will be removed to the gate for collection or disposal, including any currently in the store rooms.  Please remove your Kayak or sailboard, and any gear, before we get to it.
Please turn up and help, it never takes long when there are willing hands.

The action starts at 9 am, we look forward to seeing you.

Ian Green
Hon Sailing Secretary
