Sadly we've been greeted by a little too much cold weather this January. Sadly with ice up to 3 inches thick weren't able to break the ice yesterday to go onto the water! Fingers crossed that a warm front comes in soon and we can get back to what we are good at - SAILING!

If you haven't made your New Year's resolutions yet, why not enter an Open, get trained on setting a course, or join Sunday racing - and make 2017 your year of sailing?
Happy New Year to all our members, we're looking forward to a great 2017 with another fully packed year ahead of us. Enjoy your sailing and make the most of the club throughout the year.
Please be advised of the next AGM to be held at the clubhouse on December 1st at 8pm. There is a "nominations board" in the clubhouse so please review all open positions and apply for a role..... there are several open for next year.

Maidenhead Sailing Club Secretary
Remember, remember the 5th of November as it will now be the WORK PARTY!
Due to the school holidays and with many members away over the half term holiday it has been decided that we will not hold the work party on the planned date of 29th October. Apologies for the late notification and we trust we will see you there. There will be food supplied for lunch.
We have a list of jobs but this work party we will keep it quite simple. There are lots of outside jobs so be prepared with boots and cutting equipment, perhaps some hammers and gloves.
Due to the date move the Youth and Junior will also be around and I am sure we will all muck in together and as its the 5th November....perhaps there might be some BONFIRE related tasks too.
Thanks and regards
Our Youth and Juniors, in conjunction with 1st Maidenhead Sea Scouts, enjoyed a fantastic weekend at Rockley Watersports in Poole late in September. A full on weekend which involved some fabulous sailing for all concerned. We had asked Rockley to really push our Juniors this year and the results have been there for all to see in Sunday racing. With 4 of our Y&J's being awarded their Level 4 certificates and many others gaining their next grade - well done everyone who made this such a memorable weekend.
We're looking to book up for next year so do get in contact with the Y&J team to put your name down early!
Thanks Jo and Cath for organising such a great weekend.
