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.
Xmas Eve Fun
It all starts at 5pm with a Children's Party at the club house. There is a small cover charge. This has proved really popular in previous years and gives the kids a good way to channel the excitement.
For older members, there is a change to our usual Xmas Eve pattern - we have arranged a meal at the Andrews Arms and there is even a choice of a couple of Italian specials. The one promised missing ingredient is the long wait to be served (and it is cheaper as well). As with most places over the festive season, they need to know numbers and what to cook so please sign the list in the clubhouse and indicate your menu choice.
Boxing Day Race
A tradition of our club is to get together on Boxing Day and get some physical acitivity started to counter the excesses of the season.
There is a race (so long as the water is in a liquid state) starting at 12.30. Then, just to be sure there is a chance to indulge once more, a bit of food. More details on that nearer the time
