    Buoyancy Day 2019!

    This is the annual opportunity to have you boat checked over by a committee memberPlastic and Fibreglass boats are subject to a visual once over, older and wooden boats are typically subject to full buoyancy test in the lake. You'll also need to produce proof of insurance and then you'll be issued with your 2019 Purple Boat Sticker.

    It is also a great opportunity to come meet other club members and have a fun day together. 

    The day will start from 9.30am onwards for members to have a good look over their boats and have a practice sail in the morning.

    Very reasonably priced hot food available (Chilli, vegan chilli and baked potatoes) on a first-come-first-served basis, so we can have an idea of numbers please use the registration form to order food.

    ANNUAL AWARDS CEREMONY at around 1pm where we will be handing out the club's race trophies, cups and other awards for the 2018 year.

    The first race of the 2019 season is a one-hour 'Buoyancy Day Race' which will start at 2pm. A great opportunity to meet members new and old and for us all get together for a trip round the buoys... and hopefully back again. The race winner will win the Knotford Noggin Cup!


    Look forward to seeing you there!

    This Dinghy Sailing course is designed to follow the RYA "Start Sailing" and "Basic Skills" (Levels 1 & 2) Adult syllabus. 

    On successful completion of this course you will be able to sail a dinghy in any direction and rig and launch in moderate weather conditions. The RYA Level 2 certificate is an Internationally recognised sailing qualification and an indication that the holder has a basic level of understanding and practical competency.

    The syllabus covers practical sessions such as rigging, launching and recovery, sailing techniques and manoeuvres, ropework and capsize recovery. Background theory includes subjects such as "rules of the road", basic meteorology, clothing and equipment and emergency equipment.

    Tuition is given by trained and qualified RYA dinghy instructors with an emphasis on safety and fun! There will be Safety Powerboats on the water at all times to ensure your safety afloat.

    The course will be run over 2 Thursday evenings and 2 weekends to give you maximum time to fulfill the requirements of the syllabus. It is really important that you can attend ALL of the practical and theory sessions as it is not guaranteed we can help you catch up with things missed.

    Beach based camping social weekend with the Royal Yorkshire Yacht Club - Dinghies section. Camping next to the beach (with facilities), social sailing and BBQ on Saturday night.

    The Bridlington Weekend has become a regular feature of the OSC calendar and is always a highlight of the sailing year.  Safety boat cover is provided, as is a tractor to help get your dinghy to the beach and back.

    There's no need to go sailing if you don't fancy it, the campsite has direct access to the beach, it's perfect for kite flying or sandcastle building. Bridlington is also just a short stroll away.

    We do plan to take Club Boats, however there's no guarantee that there will be a Club Boat available to sail in.
