Reduced Charter Winter rates.  Only £300 to book a weekend during November 2021 – February 2022

Club Activities

We organise a series of club events throughout the year. These are not formal training occasions, but we try to make them as constructive as the crew wish. The skippers may not be RYA qualified, but they are all very experienced cruising skippers, with a long club history, and they enjoy sharing their enthusiasm with others.

Our yacht Eagle, a 38’ Bavaria, is ideally based for the Solent being moored on a new easy access pontoon at Universal Marina on the Hamble River. For those who want to venture further afield, the West Country and the north French Coast and Channel Islands are only a day sail away.

2021 CLUB ACTIVITIES PROGRAMME

This year, as in previous years, we have arranged a wide variety of Club Events to enable Members to improve their skills, learn new techniques of boat handling and seamanship or just go sailing.

FRIDAY 21 – SUNDAY 23 MAY

Skipper’s Refresher Weekend

Following on from the one day events and focusing on our skippers refreshing their general boat handling skills, this will be a full weekend of berthing, sail hoisting, reefing and reminding!

The emphasis is on seamanship, practical navigation, close quarters manoeuvres under engine with at least one overnight stay away from Universal and a chance to regain your confidence, blow off the dust and rust!

Individual Refresher Days – Back to Sea

At last COVID restrictions are lifted and we are allowed back onboard! But who can remember what to do?!

Throughout this week we are offering Members a single day refresher with a club skipper at a cost of £50 per person per day. The agenda will be set each day depending on crew wishes, but the day will aim to cover the basics of getting in and out of Universal, use of the engine and sails in and around Southampton Water. Start at 9am and finish at 5pm each day.

FRIDAY 18 – SUNDAY 20 JUNE

Just Go Sailing

With no pre-set agenda this weekend and could be intensive exercises or a leisurely Solent cruise.

The duty skipper will organise the agenda to suit all on board – it might just be a sail to one of the delightful destinations such as Lymington, Yarmouth or Cowes, or if everyone prefers, it could be a chance to practice coming alongside pontoons, picking up a person overboard and general sail handling.

DATES TO BE ARRANGED

Skipper’s Testing

Aspiring skippers, please register your interest.

As a Club we insist on having a “look” at skipper candidates before we let them out on their own on Eagle.

Our intention is to have a “look” at skippers “on demand” where possible. Register your interest for a day of testing or organise yourself a crew, get some possible dates, and then phone us to organise. Cost per candidate is £50.00.

Please remember that we do want people to qualify as skipper, or to upgrade. Without skippers the boats will just sit there. The standards we look for in our A, B, & C tickets are similar to the RYA Yachtmaster Offshore, RYA Yachtmaster Coastal and Day Skipper levels.

It is worth stating that we do like people to have genuinely been a skipper, with standalone responsibility, before seeking an upgrade. It is seldom sufficient just to have done another course or to have sailed as mate on a few trips.

Please feel free to phone to discuss either Events Co-ordinator, Ian Hyde to register your interest or if you have any questions 07974349331 or ian@mdsfg.com or Andy Morrill on 07775541653 or email: Andy Morrill
