Isle of Man ~ Sailing training this week

The Isle of Man Yacht Club in Port St Mary begins junior dinghy training this week.

The courses are held on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings starting at 6pm for the first couple of weeks.

There are a few places still available. For further information contact Wendy Hill on 835646.

The MS&CC (Manx Sailing and Cruising Club, the name of the Ramsey sailing club) winter series at Injebreck has now finished and there is a great deal of activity in the boat park as people complete their final preparations for the season.

Dinghy racing starts on Sunday, April 26, with racing taking place every Friday evening and Sunday morning.Isle of Man ~ Sailing training this week

The cruisers race on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings from Wednesday, May 6.

This year’s programme will include two ‘fun sails’ to encourage the less experienced to get involved. The dates for these are Sundays, May 17, and June 7. There will be a set start time but it will be a general sail (possibly a cruise down to or around the Calf) followed by a barbecue at the club at around lunch time.

Those interested in getting involved should email Michael Kneale at sailing@iomyc.com

On the social side, tickets – at £15 a head – for the fitting out supper on Saturday, April 25, are now available and must be reserved by April 21. Contact Fiona on 832088 to book.
