MPSC 2016 Training & Coaching dates

Don’t forget, though, sailing at MPSC is a 365 day activity – actually, it’s a leap year this year so we get an extra full day to enjoy our beautiful club, so whilst the weather is fairly mild, why not join us for Sunday racing? Believe it or not, Winter sailing can be some of the best days. Winds are usually more consistent as they’re not so affected by any heat from the sun, so you can actually find some far steadier conditions than in the Summer – and it really doesn’t feel all that chilly once you’re leaping around your boat.

Races start at 11am on Sundays, so aim to be at the club anything from about 930am to get rigged, changed and out onto the water.

So, there we go….. Training is setup for the year, Racing, All-Year sailing in beautiful surroundings? – Perfect.

Happy 2016 and fair winds to all :-)




Race management training: New dates.

The first session of O.O.D training will take place on January 16th at 10am.

Training will be in three parts and will cover use of Valhalla, the race computer system and race management.

Refreshments will be provided.

If you’re unable to attend, there will be another session on the second Saturday in February.

It’s important that all members attend one of the sessions if you are to run racing – remembering that it is a condition of membership that we all assist with race management, irrespective of whether you actually race or not. The only exceptions are those with special dispensation.

In addition to this, as a result of requests from members, there will also be a session on protests, procedure, management and involvement.

If you have any queries then don’t hesitate to contact the racing committee on


Merrrrry Christmaaaaaas!

There’s a small fish-shaped box under our tree at the moment. I’m quite excited to open it but I’m going to have to wait until Christmas morning.

As usual, I’ve had a sneaky feel of the packaging and a bit of a shake – I reckon it’s a 49er :-D

So, after a wonderful year of sailing at Manor Park in 2015, all there is to say now is we hope you all have a lovely Christmas and are all looking forward to a great year sailing again in 2016!

Listen!…. I think Santa is just rigging up!
