Despite the very “spring” like weather of horizontal rain and a southerly wind gusting to 40mph, 10 intrepid walkers and a few four legged friends enjoyed the inaugural Spring walk on Sunday.
After waiting for the main front to pass over, and assured by chief forecaster Alan, that the worst of the rain had passed, the walkers led by chief guide Aubrey were taken on a loop of Walberswick footpaths and lanes, before returning to the clubhouse where a roaring fire and hot bowl of soup awaited.
The next event in the calendar is the Fitting Out Supper on Saturday 11th April.
We’ll be posting plenty of photos showing what the club gets up to. A selection of cruiser photos from Alan from past seasons can be found on our facebook page
As part of the RYA’s Push the Boat Out Campaign the club are holding an Open Day on Saturday 9th May, from midday. This will give prospective new members an opportunity to view the club facilities and take part in on the water taster sessions.
See the RYA event description here.
Welcome! This is our new site. We’re still adding a few bits, such as the usual facebook/twitter share buttons, and populating our calendar but please let us know what you think of the new site.
We also now have a for sale section for members only. If you want to get rid of some boaty bits n’ bobs then, please email southwoldsc[at]gmail.com with a description of that you want to sell.
Another throwback Thursday, another White Hart race from yesteryear (mid 90’s?!) and this time a classic ‘Le Mans’ start from the bank at Blythburgh. Can you spot any familiar faces?
Here’s a video from Ollie B to tempt people back onto the water at Southwold!
Here’s a bit of a gem from a 2012 EDP article celebrating the club buying our Pico Fleet thanks to Robin’s efforts in securing funding: http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/photo_gallery_new_sailing_school_set_for_southwold_1_1524694
