Push The Boat Out Event
We had a fabulous afternoon at our Open Day on 14th May.  Don't just take our word for it - here's what people said...
"Thank you for today. The boys loved it."
"Thank you so much! We didn't know what to expect, but we've had a lovely afternoon.  The dinghy ride was great.  We're going to join and learn to sail."
"What a wonderful club, right on our doorstep."
"Thank you to all the very patient people who gave my kids lots of rides.  They can't wait to do the course."
"We loved our time out on the  water with Dave. Great fun. Cheers."
Don't worry if you missed the event. If you'd like to know more about dinghy sailing, and want to get involved, we still have memberships available.  This year's courses are full but we are taking contact details for those who are interested for next year. Please contact us for further information, we'd love to hear from you.
Chichester Sailing Week
Many club members have just returned from the annual TTSC sailing week at Chichester. For those that have not been this week offers you a chance to sail on the sea in a relatively safe environment.

Unlike Haysden lake, sailing involves taking account of the tide and lots of other boats, some considerably bigger than a dingy. Trips of two or three miles take place usually ending up at a pub for lunch or if the conditions are right, the beach.

The weather was a significant feature of this year’s event with more rain and wind than we would have liked. However, there is still plenty to do around and about and trips to the cinema, swimming pool, walking, cycling and much more were enjoyed by everyone.

The annual Tidal Trophy race also took place as usual albeit in very windy conditions. Around half a dozen dinghies attempted the start with one retiring before the race and another during the race. However, the winning boat, a Miracle complete with mum, dad and two children under 11 showed everyone how it should be done! The day was rounded off with the annual camp BBQ where everyone on the camp site cooks and socialises in the middle of the field.

As you can see below the Commodore’s wife had her own tent this year.......... An inviting, spacious, comfortable and functional retreat from the inclement weather!
