Datchet the new Dahab for Windsurfers & Stand Up Paddle Boards
Calling all windsurfers – this Thursday the 13th August will be the launch of Thursday evening windsurfing for the next 6 weeks from 6pm onwards.
We will be organising fun informal windsurfing incorporating blasting, course racing and some speed sailing to a buoy and back where you can take out a GPS and record your time on the new leader-board
We have installed some additional matting for rigging on the beach and mats into the water, a leader board has been erected in the club house and GPS will be available to record your speed.
Everyone is welcome to take part and some friendly tips and advise on how to improve your technique out on the water will be available.
Light winds and no winds not a problem
There will also be SUP’s (Stand Up Paddle Boards) to use along with an instructor on the evening so bring along the kids for a really fun Thursday evening of windsurfing and socialising.
BYO drinks for a social beer or two after the sailing, we will be ordering in fish & chips for supper £5 per head.
Please note all sailors need to wear buoyancy. Guests welcome £10 per person

This Sunday, the club is running the Fleet Championships.
Due to a lack of competitors from the CAT fleet (all good reasons) we have decided to run our championships later in the year. The other fleets will still be competing this Sunday.
The likely date for us, is Sunday 20th September, but I will confirm this to you all ASAP.
It is with great sadness that I inform you of the death of PJ who died after a long illness. PJ was the club steward for over 25 years.

Today we saw a wonderful schools cup. It is a bright Sunny Day with 12kts of wind and defending champions Fulham Prep took on the combined London area schools team in a 4 race extravaganza. The results came in after all four races as a win for the Combined London Area Schools Team. Fulham Prep made a gallant effort to defend their 4 year reign as schools champions but fell just short of retaining the title. The racing was finished off with a fun race to the pontoon which saw all the participants and an instructor make it back to shore in one boat finishing the day on a big high for all.
Datchet Water Sailing Club would like to thank all that took part for making it yet another great and memorable schools cup.
