Join in the celebration as Datchet Water Sailing Club marks its 40th birthday 

It’s time to swap your winter wetsuits for party clothes and dancing shoes as the club kicks off its 40th anniversary year with a special celebration on 28 February.

The party will start straight after Sunday racing at 2pm and everyone is welcome, young and old, family and friends, as we start our year of
40-focused activities.

We have a raft of special features planned for the party. Can you sing? Can you bake? Are you a quiz ace or a party game fanatic? If so we want to hear from you now.

Plus we will hand out prizes, including the WWU and winter series winners, some brand new members’ awards and we celebrate the official opening of the fantastic new facilities in the clubhouse with special guests from Thames Water and the RYA.

So pop the date in your diary. The bar will be open and the food will be ready. Come and join us for some fun, games, entertainment, tea, cakes and, of course, party ice cream, jelly and prizes.

News update from Sailing Committee

As you know we ran a slightly different format for the Winter Series to trial some suggestions made by you the membership. As you are aware we are back to the standard model of courses, starts and start timing for the time being.
The trial was a great success and thank you from the SC for the feedback, this has been very helpful. I would like to share with you the high level results of the trial so that you can understand some improvements that will be rolled out as a direct result of the trail and your feedback.

1) starting with the summer series we will be introducing the varied courses that we trialed during the winter series. We need to formalize some instructions for Race Officers to assist in the understanding around the conditions relating to when to use which course.
2) The later start time of 11:00am appears to have some support however this will probably be used only for the Winter series as we go forward.
3) The 2 start format is something that we will again look at for the winter series however one fleet is unhappy about the 2 starts and we will work with that fleet to satisfactory resolve this.

Other things you need to look out for from the Sailing Committee in this our 40th year is MORE SAILING. We intend to restart the great work John Bashford did and get some sailing/coaching/encouragement sessions on Saturday afternoons open to all club members. We want to promote a fun environment where we can sail and learn from our peers within our own and different fleets. We are also looking for Race Officers who will run racing on Sunday afternoon as well as Sunday morning. This will be a separate series from Sunday Morning and I encourage you all to support it going forward. More news on these activities in the next few weeks.

First Weekend of the Winter Warm Up

A very exciting weekend was had by most with at least one gust of 42 mph. Even with the wind strength 2 races were completed and the results can be found on the results section of this website. Great to see so many people socializing in the clubhouse after the race.
