Windsurfing-SUP Thursday nights at Datchet

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

Datchet Water Sailing Club Saturday Club 2015 Schools Cup Results

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.
