Social Events at West Oxfordshire Sailing Club


In addition to the sailing programme West Oxfordshire Sailing Club organises a 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 hoping to offer in 2022 whilst conditions allow.  Please look at the social calendar and upcoming events list for fuller details.
