Sidmouth Sailing Club celebrates a super year of achievement and growth


Saturday evening saw the members of Sidmouth Sailing Club gather together with friends and family for their annual Trophy Night held at the Port Royal.

The evening was well attended where the achievements of many over the past year were recognised and celebrated.

Commodore, Simon White, who conducted the presentation of the award’s, told everyone present that he felt the season had been a ‘great success’ and that the membership of the club had increased during the season.

He also spoke of the commitment and enthusiasm of those members who give up so much of their own time in supporting and running the club and its events.

A new idea trialled this year had been ‘Taster Sessions’ whereby people new to sailing had the opportunity of being taken out by an experienced helm. This had proved to be a fantastic success and more sessions are planned for next year.

The social side of the club has also grown, with many different types of events being held throughout the year. One of the biggest events this year was the screening of the ‘Bake Off” final with our own baking competition running simultaneously.

The 2016 calendar is already being organized and will be published early next year thereby giving its members plenty of time to prepare for the many events of the new season.
