Kayaks & Windsurfs in the Boat Park

Kayaks and Windsurfers will now need to register to launch from the club. This will cost £15. Harbour dues are also available from the office. This must be done by 16 June 2017.

In the Tera, Opi and Feva boat park there are over 90 kayaks and windsurfers scattered about, on dunes, on boats and behind boats. They are a mess and inconvenient to other boat park users, it's quite possible that many of them are abandoned.

Once registered you will receive a sticker to identify your vessel. Kayaks & windsurfers do not have parking spaces but may be kept on top of your boat in the boat park (and not encroach on another space).

This must be done by 16th June.

Any unstickered kayaks and windsurfers after 16 June will be sin binned and if not claimed after 16 September 2017 will be sold off.

505 & Flying Dutchman Classes UK Open Nationals

On-Line Entry is now open for the International 505 & Flying Dutchman UK Championships . . .

The two championships will take place from 27 to 30 July 2017.

These two classes have history.

They faced off at the International Yacht Racing Union selection trials at La Baule, France, in 1953 for a new two-person performance dinghy for the Olympics.

Although the 505 (then the Coronet) lost Olympic selection to the Flying Dutchman, it was developed for the French Caneton Association and went on to become popular worldwide.

Both classes have survived on the International racing scene, attracting top class crews and providing competition at the highest level.
