Social Events at West Oxfordshire Sailing Club

In addition to the sailing programme West Oxfordshire Sailing Club organises a wide variety of social events. Most of these events are  open to members and their invited friends who may be non-members.

The social secretary is Nick Speller.

We are always looking for new ideas and volunteers to help run events. Most of the events are run by members willing to help and give their time to ensure the events are fun for all who attend. Volunteering to help is a great way of getting to know new people and feeling much more part of the club.

Below is a list of events we are planning to offer in 2020.  Please look at the social calendar and upcoming events list for fuller details.

At WOSC we also allow members to pitch a tent occasionally to enjoy the facilities and spend an evening by the lake but we are sorry but non-members of the club (including child guests) are not able to camp at WOSC

If you would like to book a slot to camp please download the booking Form, fully fill it in and send it to our booking secretary preferably with a minimum of 24 hours notice (much more would be appreciated) to Sue Weinstock at bookings@wosc.org.uk

Coming up next...

WOSC Sunday Afternoon Virtual Clubhouse!

Starting Sunday (5th April) we will be offering a one-hour drop-in video and audio chat for WOSC members starting from 2pm.  

This will be an opportunity to talk to other members about sailing, boat maintenance and repair as well as about other non-sailing things.  This is an experiment which we hope might grow and develop over the coming weeks whilst physical gatherings are not allowed. We may be able to introduce a virtual household quiz, or even some online sailing competitions into the mix in the future!

We are starting using the platform called Zoom.  You will be able to access it via a special URL, below, which we will redirect to the Zoom session just before 2pm on Sundays.

You will need a computer/laptop with camera and good internet connection OR an iPad/iPhone or Android phone/tablet with the free Zoom app installed.  You do not need to create an account to join.

Why not drop in and join us for a chat, or to hear someone hold forth, or even to share a beer or wine with virtual friends!

2pm Sundays from 5th April at http://woscchat.oxon.in


Unfortunately given the current Covid 19 situation WOSC is unable to provide any social events in the foreseeable future.

The Government guideance is in a state of constant flux from:

Avoid large gatherings, and gatherings in smaller public spaces such as pubs, cinemas, restaurants, theatres, bars, clubs


No gatherings of more that two people.

Please check back here once the government have lifted restrictions.  Once it is possible to promote social gatherings again we will re-introduce our social program and hopefully reschedule some of the postponed events.
