So many people wanting to come on our Adult Sailing Course have said they cannot attend on Saturday that we have decided to make the Sunday morning session on May 20 the start. We will continue the Course on Sunday mornings after that (missing out the Bank Holiday weekend) so the rest of the dates are June 3, June 10,June 17, June 24, July 1 and July 8.
We will continue with Sunday morning Improver Sessions after that.
As we are only a small club, spaces are limited (10). This course has proven to be very popular and many have gone on to continue sailing as a hobby/sport.
The accent is on practical sessions on the water with some land-based drills and s few short theory briefings
We have buoyancy aids that can be borrowed and the only ‘kit’ you need are a set of clothes (+shoes) that can get wet and a towel and change of garments so you can go home dry.

The refurbishment of the club bar has been completed after several weeks of work by a core group of members, led from the front by Phil (who designed it as well) and Ian.
The design makes better use of the available space and incorporates led lighting that adds to the attractive appearance.
The bar top has been built so it is possible to mount a beer engine for hand-pulled pints on special occasions.
One of the modifications in the final phase of the development has been the creation of a canopy with concealed downlights that give it a most welcoming appearance.
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.
