Visit our Coronavirus page for details of how our current sailing activities are affected.

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.

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.

This weekend is the Barnes cup

 Good morning everyone.

.  An pursuit race that is open to all club members.

Previous winners of the Barnes Cup

For those who are unfamiliar with the pursuit race format it is basically this:

Boats start at different times as dictated by their handicap. If all boats are sailed to their handicap they should all finish at the same time. So first to finish at the allotted time is the winner. "Simples"

Clearly not all boats will be sailed perfectly and the the thrill is in the chase.

The Sailing instructions and start times ha e been sent to all members via email.  

The race is scheduled to finish at 2:40 which will give the competitors time to get back to the club house for a Cream tea on the Lawn. What could be better?

I hope you can join us.
