This summer, I learnt to sail
with Nigel, Tom C, Charlie G and Rhian

It was the best skill I have ever learnt.

It wasn’t easy, but like all skills, it comes with practise. Just remember, persevere and you can do anything! I certainly was not keen on falling into the reservoir or getting wet at first, but I had made friends during this course that made me feel confident and [I admit] less worried about capsizing. I would recommend this to anyone, because as long as you have fun and just enjoy, it, you’ll find yourself at a sailing event, having the time of your life!

Water Safety


It must be recognised that sailing is by its nature is an unpredictable sport and therefore inherently involves an element of risk. By going out on the water you agree and acknowledge that:

  • You are aware of the inherent element of risk involved in the sport and you accept responsibility exposing yourself to such inherent risk
  • You will comply at all times with the rules of Cransley SC, failure to do so may result in your membership of the club being withdrawn
  • You must wear a buoyancy aid whilst on the water, in the duty hut and on the pontoon
  • Wear sailing clothing suitable for the time of year and weather conditions. Cold water shock is a killer so do not put yourself at risk
  • You accept responsibility for any injury, damage or loss to the extent caused by your own negligence
  • You will not participate in sailing activities whilst your ability to skipper or crew a dinghy is impaired by alcohol, drugs or whilst otherwise unfit to participate
  • A responsible adult over the age of 18 years must ensure that youths under the age of 18 are fully aware of the above.
