If you are showing coronavirus symptoms, or if you or any of your household or your support bubble are self-isolating, you should stay at home – this is critical to staying safe and saving lives.
The CLUBHOUSE: will remain closed to members and the public except for certain authorised persons, see here.
On THE WATER: Windsurfing, single-handed sailing, or sailing in the same boat by persons living together in the same household or within the same support bubble, is permitted. Double handed sailing is clearly consistent with government guidance for those living in the same household or within the same support bubble.
SAFETY COVER: Only go on the water if your sailing skills are of adequate standard i.e. you are able to right your boat unaided and return to the shore under the prevailing weather conditions on the day. Please note that safety cover will still be very restricted. In the event of an emergency, priority will be given to people over boats/equipment.

Racing: Regular racing takes the form of class racing - boats race only against their own kind. This makes for bigger, better fleets. WHSC racing classes are the GP14 and the Laser. Club members participate both here and at other venues.
Thinking of learning to sail or windsurf for the first time?
We have qualified instructors, modern boats and boards, buoyancy aids, wind and water - all we need is YOU!
Windsurfing on the Welsh Harp is run by a welcoming team of friendly and enthusiastic volunteer instructors. You can learn, race and just windsurf for fun!As a volunteer club we have no paid staff - so rely on members getting involved and being part of the club in order for us to continue to offer good quality equipment, facilities and training.
As a volunteer-only club, we rely entirely on club members to help out. This includes Training during the summer, and organising Racing and Safety during the year.
