You may be aware that some members from A.S.C. recently spent a week sailing a passage from Gosport to Fecamp and then on down the Normandy coast before returning to Gosport. Crew member Mike Armson has penned an entertaining blog of this trip with some excellent photo’s taken on route. To find out more about our exciting and thrilling passage his blog can be found on the members page.

No summer courses

For everyone’s attention

There is currently no plan to run any courses throughout the summer holidays in 2017, as our instructors are volunteers they have given up almost every weekend since the beginning of the season to complete RYA Stage 1, 2 and 3 along with RYA Level 1 and 2.
Please accept our appologies for the inconvience this may cause, however we hope you can understand that our instructors time is valuable.

We are hoping to run more courses in 2018, with the first being during the Easter Holidays. Please do not contact about courses until after Christmas 2017, as your enquiry will not be processed.

Many thanks for your co-operation

Chief Instructor
