Our season traditionally starts with the Fitting Out supper which this year gave us the opportunity to use our new marquee. After much planning and hard work everything came together for a very successful evening. The weekend also saw the start of the racing and we had a good turnout of boats for this early in the season.
One noticeable thing was the number of young people out sailing which is great for the club. The British Sharpie Championship comes to Wells in June which will be a very busy time and be quite a show with so many boats on the water.
We were delighted to have 30 volunteers working at Wells Sailing Club on Saturday 8th April, demonstrating that we are truly a self-help club! Thanks to everyone who helped

At this time of year there is a great deal of work to do to get the Club ready for the beginning of the season – sailing and social! We are looking for as many members as possible to come along on Saturday 8th April to help with work both inside the Club and outside. Everyone is welcome – we have jobs that require skills, and many that do not!
There will be soup for all volunteers – please contact Justine to confirm that you will be there email@example.com
The beginning of the sailing season is fast approaching, and will be marked as usual by the Fitting Out Supper on 1st April . We will be having a two-course meal (£10) and hope to be admiring the new marquee for the first time – all being well!
We hope as many of you as possible will come along – we will send an email to the membership with further details, but you can book early to avoid disappointment, by contacting Justine on firstname.lastname@example.org
After many years of good service, our wonderful ‘Party Tent’ got damaged in strong winds at the end of last year. The committee have spent many months researching what the Club requires when buying a replacement and have finally ordered a custom-made marquee. It will be used for the first time at the 2017 FITTING OUT CELEBRATION on 01/04/17. We hope as many people as possible will come along to mark the beginning of the Sailing season – and admire the marquee!
WSC is pleased to offer the use of the Clubhouse to the RNLI on 30.03.17 to celebrate Robert Smith being awarded an MBE for services to the local community.
