Get Sailing Group (GSG)
Welcome to the Get Sailing Group!
The GSG was launched with the aim of helping those of you who have some experience of sailing, maybe from a past sailing holiday or childhood sailing, but feel that they need to gain, or regain, confidence in sailing at Keyhaven.
The group, co-ordinated by Stuart Rowney, has now evolved to include members that have little or no sailing experience, placing them with more experienced helm in our scow fleet. In some cases, these less experienced members have gone on to helm boats, race and even invest in their own boats.
We hope that this experience will lead you on to joining the Potterers or Racing groups, but should at least give you the confidence to sail by yourself around Keyhaven.
This year we will be using WhatsApp to communicate, so if you wish to join the group, please email your mobile number to the office email@example.com. As you know, we all have many WhatsApp groups so please try not to 'chat' too much on this and reply privately wherever possible.
The first event this year is on Saturday 29th April with our Start Up day. This will be a land-based event with a chance to meet those who can help you get on the water, learn about the rigging of the club boats, the vagaries of the river and tides, and an opportunity to ask questions about Support boats, VHF radios, Clothing etc.
For a full list of dates for 2023, please visit the calendar.
