Etherow Country Park Sailing Club
Annual General Meeting

Thursday November 24th is a key date for your diary - the club's AGM when we hear reports about how well the club is doing and elect our officers for the coming year.

It is also an opportunity to discuss matters which members feel strongly about and there weill be focus on taking the club forward in 2017 - our Golden Anniversary.

Winter Racing

We are a hardy lot at Etherow well maybe not everybody, and we generally keep sailing while the water is still a liquid (though we have been known to break the ice with a safety boat even then).

Sunday races are brought forward to 1pm and the two races are back-to-back (i.e.no return to the jetty in between) so we can be finished (off the water) by 3.30 at the latest and hopefully get all the boats put to bed before the dark descends.

Friday afternoon racing is another feature for those who are retired or have flexible work schedules. Come along and enjoy the fun.

Thursday nights see opening times of 8 till 9.30. As well as a social chat we hope to put on some presentations / workshops. Suggestion of topics people would like covered will be welcome.

 

See the action here

Now you can catch the action both on our own water and across the oceans of the world thanks to a new page on this site.

Our Videos page (find it under Our Club) features the latest action in top flight sailing events across the globe thanks to World On Water. Episodes change on Friday each week but you can wind back to 2014 using a button in the top left of the video area. You can also expand the video to full screen in HD with the button at the bottom right.

We did have videos on the old website and we will soon have some of that archive available but we need new material . Members are invited to submit their own footage - bearing in mind that it must have the right clearances (eg parental permission where youngsters are featured).

Thank you for visiting the website of the Etherow Country Park Sailing Club, the only sailing club in Stockport. Feel free to browse our site and see what we have to offer.

Etherow is a friendly club (when racing we experience good-natured rivalry!) and we welcome everyone: from those who may never have put their foot in a dinghy before, to Olympic team coach. Membership is inexpensive and we have some club boats that can be used, for a nominal charge, during the early stages. There are plenty of boats for sale within the club and elsewhere for very little money.
