HOW TO CHECK IF SAILING IS CANCELLED

This year we have a new system for notifying cancellation of sailing. If for any reason you think its doubtful that sailing will take place please ring 01493 663837 which is an answer phone. There will be a message saying what is happening.

If the instructor is unsure how the weather will be later in the day he will ask you to ring the number again later in the day. In this way we can ensure we can give members the latest decision as quickly as possible.
