Club Meeting

Following the initiative raised at the AGM, the Exec are seeking ideas for ways to advertise and market the club with the aim of increasing the membership of TSC.

In order to get this started we plan to hold a meeting at the club on Wed 4th Feb at 8:00pm which is open to all members no matter what age or skill level, where we will pool as many ideas as possible and form a small sub committee.

If you are interested in being part of this exciting new project and would like to join in or perhaps join the sub committee or if you just have any ideas that you would like discussed then please get in touch, or better still come along to the meeting.

Asymmetric / Vago Training Day – Saturday 14th March 2015

Would you like to learn more about Asymmetric & Trapeze Sailing? Tudor SC are hosting an asymmetric training day, sponsored by the Laser Vago Class Association. Expert tuition will be provided by RYA Qualified Coach & Top Laser Vago Sailor, Ed Deacon

The event is open to all Asymmetric Classes at Tudor SC and also Laser Vago Class Association members. If you do not sail an Asymmetric boat, but would like to learn more / have a go, why not come and try a Laser Vago? There will be several Laser Vago’s available to try during the day, either to self-sail, or go out accompanied by one of our experienced helm or crews.

The coaching is FREE, but food and hot drinks are available at £8 per person (breakfast, lunch, hot & cold drinks + afternoon tea & cake!)
