On Tuesday October 30, Etherow CPSC is hosting an open meeting for both single and double handers and there is no age restriction.
Racing will start at 11am and the entry fee of £5 includes food, tea and coffee (it will help if people can contact us to help us cater for the right numbers). Please send an email to 'entries' at 'ecpsc.org.uk'.
There will be one race before lunch and two back to back in the afternoon.
The event was first held as part of our Golden Jubilee celebrations.
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.
The protection of the personal data of our members and visitors is duty that Etherow Country Park Sailing Club accepts willingly.
We do all we can to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation that was brought into effect in the spring of 2018.

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.
