Latest News


Frostbite Racing:

With gales sweeping in from the south west the races last Sunday were cancelled.No racing next Sunday so the next two races will be at 12.30pm on Sunday 2nd November.

End of Season Cruiser Awards:

Whilst our cruiser fleet does not participate in regular racing, we value our cruiser fleet equally with other craft. This year they have played a very helpful supportive role in taking youngsters out when possible to give seafaring experience and the thrills of “big boat sailing”. This year’s Furthest Cruise award goes jointly to Ray and Dot in Spartacus and Graham and Jo in Seafever for making the voyage Lundy. It might have been further but for the need to battle back through a strong force 6 all the way ! Tony and Diana in Melody took the cup as leading cruiser in Barts Bash. John and Tonia easily won the Most Days Afloat award and in their case it might be renamed the House Boat Cup as they really made the most of an excellent Summer to get out on the water.

Some other boats in the harbour might take note as there is thought being given to withdrawing moorings from those who never use their craft, which does not seem unreasonable when there is such pressure for mooring places.

Blingo at Tenby SC:

This is bingo with a glitzy twist ! This fun packed evening of sparkling entertainment is open to all at Tenby SC tomorrow night (Saturday) in aid of Tenby RNLI on whom we all depend. Please advise commodore@tenbysailingclub.org.uk if you would like to participate.

Harbour Developments:

They say that all publicity is good for promotion but announcing the wrong date is maybe not such a good idea.

Michael Davies talk and discussion evening titled "Saundersfoot Harbour - Development Phases 1 and 2 - Strategy" is to be held at 7.30pm on Friday 14th November.

WYA no Longer:

The recent AGM unanimously agreed to rename the WYA to RYA Cymru Wales.

The rebranding process has been carefully thought through by the Board and there has been a lot of consultation. This was important to ensure that 50 years of history is not forgotten and that they continue to build on the work that has been done and to support the interests of members. The new website address is www.ryacymruwales.org.uk

Topper Training:

Pembrokeshire Adventure Centre is offering a free Stage 3 course for Topper sailors on 27/28th or 29/30th October. You need to be 10 years or more, of a suitable weight for the class and to have completed your Stage 2 confidently. Equipment can be provided.

To book phone Lyn Egelstaff on 01646 622013 or email lyn.Egelstaff@princes-trust.org.uk

RNLI Sea Safety Survey:

Tenby RNLI are asking for some help from members. The RNLI nationally are in the middle of a comprehensive survey of all users of the sea and coast, with a view to better understanding habits in order to target their safety messages more effectively.

Andrew Lowe, Lifeboat Sea Safety Officer from Tenby is inviting SSC members of any vessel (dinghies to ocean going) to give their views and details for this survey.

It involves around a 30 minute meeting with Andrew – all information will be treated in confidence & anonymity. He can meet you at the club, come to your home, meet at Tenby Lifeboat Station or your favourite pub. The survey has to be completed by November 8th.

If you feel you can help, please either call or text him on 07770 996574, or email to: andrew@signaturedesign.demon.co.uk and he will arrange a meet up.

Please support our RNLI.

About the club



INTRODUCTION

Saundersfoot is a small seaside holiday village in West Wales with picturesque scenery, an excellent beach and ample parking. The sailing waters within Saundersfoot Bay attract many sailors and regattas are always well supported. Catering facilities within the village are good; cafes, inns and shops are all within a few yards of the central car park. Residential accommodation is available in hotels and guest houses. Saundersfoot Sailing Club's dinghy park is small and unfortunately, has no space available for visiting boats. However, boats can usually be left safely on the beach.


ON THE WATER

Although the club encourages all forms of watersport it is mainly dinghy sailing and cruiser sailing that forms the major part of our on the water activity. The club has a full dinghy sailing programme with the season running from April to October each year. To encourage new members to the sport of dinghy sailing the club has an active sail training scheme which is run in accordance with the Royal Yachting Association who are the governing body of the sport in the UK. Cruiser sailing activity is based more on cruising than racing although regular races are held with our neighbouring club Tenby Sailing Club and we also hold a cruiser regatta.
