The Welsh Harp Sailing Club is re-opening!
From 29th March the club will be open for leisure sailing & windsurfing, for racing and for boat tinkering.
The club will be opening in accordance with Step 1 of the government’s COVID-19 Spring Response but we are waiting for further guidance about exactly how this can happen from the government and the RYA. As soon as we have these we will give more details…but in the meantime what we do know is:
Until we get further details from the government and RYA we are unable to confirm dates and details but there will be something for everyone:
We are busy planning our usual mix of weekly Saturday morning and Thursday evening training sessions as well as some holiday RYA courses.
Saturday morning Plain Sailing, Thursday evening training and Saturday Coached Racing will all return as well as some RYA courses to bring all levels on.
We are looking forward to seeing both beginners and more advanced members at our Thursday evening sessions.
Power Boat, Safety Boat, First Aid
For those wishing to train in other areas, we are looking at teaming up with other friends on the Harp to provide these.
The volunteers have been busy whilst we have been away making vast improvements to the site, read more about it in this article.

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.
