Scammonden Water Sailing Club is hosting a Laser Open event on Sunday 5 September. See the Laser Open page for full details.
Please Note: Due to the event Scammonden Water will be closed to non-Open participants.
Race results for 2021 have now been added to the Results 2021 webpage. There are 13 new sets of results but maybe they all weren’t unlucky for you!
Within the current Government Covid restrictions, sailing continues at the club with racing formally arranged for Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons. To check what is happening, the latest sailing programme is always available on the Sailing Programme 2021 page.
Informal sailing is also being arranged for some Saturday afternoons. Make sure you are signed up to the club’s ‘Sailing’ WhatsApp group for up-to-date information. Remember that you can only sail when the safety boat is launched, so attendance must be agreed via the group.
Now that sailing is back at SWSC, don’t forget the 2 day Easter Series on Easter Sunday and the Bank Holiday Monday. Racing starts at 1.00 pm on both days and while the summer-like weather of the last few days may have left us, it looks like there will be plenty wind. Good luck if you’re racing!!
Finally, the current lockdown is edging towards an end, which means from 31st March we can get back to sailing!!
