Welcome Toppers!

This weekend we welcome the Topper fleet who will be with us for  a whole weekend of Top Topper fun

On Saturday, the fleet will be holding a coaching day, so expect the clubhouse to be in use quite heavily as well as the lakes being pretty full of Toppers screeching around showing us all how it’s done.

That will be for most of the day on Saturday.

On Sunday, it’s Race day…. a round of the Midlands Traveller Series.

This will be a great event to watch or even assist with. Don’t forget, this is where many of the country’s top sailors have come from, all the way from Oppies and Toppers up to the Olympics and the America’s Cup. Who knows, there may be a future Olympian amongst this group so why not come and support them all along the way.

As a result, there’ll be no club racing on Sunday.We are expecting a good turnout and we’ll have as many patrol boats / assistants as we can possibly have out on the water and ashore to help with the smooth running of the event.

In addition, the car park and beach area will both be quite busy at times.

At the moment, the forecast is looking ‘lively’ so expect to see some quite full-on Topper action :-)

Let’s go sailing!! – Easter weather……

How many of you have noticed the weather link on our website? ¬†Hopefully most of you…but if you haven’t then look down and to the right. See that weatherman? – yep, click his head and there’s the local weather forecast for you for the MPSC area.

Anyway, with a big 4-day break coming up, it’s looking really good for getting out on the water practicing those flashy tacks & gybes, getting some top splashage spraying around and developing that awesome ‘boot tan’…..come on, it’s looking good so lets get those boats out and make it an Easter break to remember.

Hey, why not bring a barbecue….Sunday afternoon? Monday? – bring a tent down and do a bit of camping……ok that could be pushing it, but you can if you want to :-)

Adults, your club needs you……..pass this to your friends.

2015 is ‘Year of the Adult’ here at Manor Park sailing Club.

We’re trying to get as many of you as possible out on the water through the upcoming season,¬†introducing you to our fantastic sport.

I bet you’ve watched, from a holiday beach, as people zip around in dinghies with big smiles on their faces. I bet you’ve thought: “I’d love to give that a go” Well, that’s where we come in……

We’re currently looking to purchase some brand-new training boats to help fulfil your dreams :-)

However, we need to know how many people would be interested and what kind of thoughts / concerns and worries you may have when it comes to thinking about having a go at sailing.

It really isn’t as difficult as you think and all you need is enthusiasm, a change of clothes and a smile….if you can do that, then come on down and see what we’re all about! Safe in the knowledge that you’ll be in a group of like-minded grow ups.

We are a very friendly club, always welcoming to those interested in taking a look around – who knows, you might even catch us on a barbecue day on our lakeside patio :-)

To help us with our funding application, we need to find out how many people would be interested in trying out sailing as an activity, so we’d like you to fill out this simple survey and we can get back in touch with you from there.
