We had a very successful day on 2 August.  Over 40 members helped out on and off the water, which was a very good turn out and showed the breadth of skills and qualifications that we have.

There were 135 people on the water over the 4 hour period of the event, and some of them went out in dinghies and cruisers too.

We hope that some of those who came along will want to become members or take up the training courses that we run.

EYC ANNUAL TASTER DAY - Sunday 2 August, 10-4pm

Come along to the Club this Sunday and have a chance to sail.  It is a great way of having an introduction to the sport of sailing in a safe environment on the best sailing waters of the Thames. 

WHY? Sailing is an excellent way of keeping fit.  The Club is a friendly place to meet new people in excellent facilities.

COST? It costs nothing to come along and get on the water.  And if you buy a boat later it does not have to be expensive either.

WHAT NEXT? If you like it then sign up for a course - the next Level 1 and 2 courses are on 12 & 13 September (contact: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) Become a member for less than half price too and enjoy the sailing opportunities.

Hope to see you on Sunday.

EYC is at DARTFORD SHOW - This weekend (18 & 19 July).

Come along to the show and meet members who will be there promoting our sailing and training for all ages - especially our Taster Day on 2 August.

Next training course: September 12 & 13 September - Levels 1, 2 and advanced courses....so sign up NOW!

If any members have a spare couple of hours, please come along to support those who have been there all weekend.  The more the merrier....


Diamond series may be over but the racing continues......

Race: not before 7pm

Weather: NWly, 7kts, sunny and 20 degs.

See you all there for some fun before the bar opens at 8pm.
