Sandwell Valley Sailing Blog

Welcome to our sailing blog


Trying to let everyone know what's going on and to have somewhere for your thoughts and ideas about sailing and club activities.


I haven't worked out how to allow you to post on the blog, so just email any contributions and I'll post them.  I think you can add your own comments though.


I think I'm supposed to add pictures sometimes, but I'm too busy sailing to take any!  So if the guys on the bank or in the safety boat could take a few and send them in, I'd be really grateful.

Boat Out, totally Pushed - me out, totally bushed!

A bit late writing this week, as not much energy left after Saturday (and I guess that applies to some others.) Who'd have thought sitting in a boat for a few hours could be so tiring? Though I guess the painting and cleaning beforehand played some part.

But on the other side of the balance I'm still on a high from the experience - all that effort, enthusiasm and teamwork from so many members trying to make the day a success and all that obvious pleasure and excitement from all the visitors. So I pronounce it a success no matter how many people sign up as a result.

Gordon did give some details at the debrief and i think it sounded good, but I was past being able to take it in. I know one family signed up on the spot and we have enquiries about Start Sailing courses. I'll post more when i get the follow-up info.

Bank holiday weekend next Saturday, so maybe you'll be away. If you come, don't forget your sun-cream, it's supposed to be a scorcher - but with wind!

On a bank holiday? It must be a judgement on you for giving everyone such a fantastic day last Saturday.
