    Fantastic news, we have a couple of Zest dinghies on a short loan for members to try.

    The Zest can be sailed as a single or double hander (or triple...). 

    The masts/sails are located at the bottom of the topper mast rack and the jibs are hanging in bags at the end of the same rack.

    If you need help...JUST ASK!

    Martin Gibson Fund-Junior Entries to WOSC Open Meetings

    As most of you are aware, a fund in memory of Martin Gibson exists to promote sailing amongst the junior members of WOSC. Details of eligibility for funding are on the website, and many have taken advantage of this, particularly for attendance at the Firefly nationals-a very worthy cause.

    The club intends to join the Firefly Association as an institutional member, which will mean club members sailing club boats will not have to join the Association personally for Firefly events.

    The club has two excellent Laser dinghies for the use of members. Both have new Radial sails and rigs, and have good quality trollies and covers.

    They can and should be rigged and derigged with NO NEED to untie or tie any knots

    Please book out and pay before using them

    Please respect these boats when using them . They are not to be used for swimming/diving platforms. The boats must be beached on the trolley and the sail taken down while not in use (eg between races). The old Lasers have been sold.
