who may not be able to visit as often as they would like
but like to keep informed about what we are up to during
the season. Please click on the PDF icon.
2015 Mid season results after

SSC Race report
and week summary 23rd August 2015
SSC race summary.
The enthusiasm and the will to go out sailing was there,
we even had a group of sailors all kitted up with sails almost
flapping in the breeze but alas there just was not enough
to allow our keen weather watching OOD David to give the green
light to sail.
The mist was rolling in and any wind soon dissipated away
with the keenest of club members heading off home for an early
dinner. There will though be more racing planned for next
Sunday which has a race start time of 17.30 and consists of
two races being watched over by OOD James.
Friday club sailing
Currently there is a plan to sail this Friday evening with
a 5pm start for social sailing so if you would like to come
along I am sure there will be a good attendance, for more
accurate detail please monitor the Facebook pages as most
people seem to post on there now for any up to date sail messaging.
Bart’s Bash 20th September
Currently the club has 27 boats registered which is still
the largest in the world and we plan to start the race at
11am. We do have lots planned to fill the day which includes
as many boats kitted out in fancy dress for the race as we
can muster including crews. Tea / Coffee / Cakes available
in the clubhouse before and after the race. Haywood’’s
slinger sausages in a roll to fill you up before the rugby
starts on the big screen at 14.30 between Wales and Uruguay
in the world cup.
We have some great trophies sponsored by Waters Edges Holiday
Apartments and the list of raffle prizes is growing but we
do need more so please help to support this popular fund raising
raffle for a good cause.
Tenby brewery will be supplying a Bart’s real ale which
we will be selling at the give away price of £2.50 a
pint so that seems a good deal not to be missed. We will also
be having a raffle and fundraising for what the day is all
about and that is to support the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation
but having some fun at the same time.
We do hope to raise some money by selling cakes so if you
wish to donate either a bought or homemade cake then please
contact Mick Lightwood with your offer of help.
Hopefully this run of very wet and dismal weather will improve
for not only all our regular sailors but the holiday makers
as well who it seems have turned up with many boats to sail
during their vacation and have located their boats on the
beaches of both Coppet and Saundersfoot.

our non existent Sunday race.
About the club
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.
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.
