Summer Social

Social events during the summer usually centre around some sort of sailing activity, but they are open to all Club members and their families whether they are sailing or not. They usually involve a BBQ and a ‘bring a bottle’ and are a good chance for members to catch up with events off the water.

Winter Social

During the winter season, the Club holds indoor meetings, usually on the last Thursday of the month. In the past there have been some really first class visiting speakers attending these meetings, to share with us their experience and adventures. Otherwise the evening is a social event such as a curry evening or a game of pub skittles.

A long standing feature of the winter programme has also been a winter ramble. This usually takes in a pub lunch and is a good way for members catch up over the winter break.

Cold Shock

You might think that the major risk when sailing dinghies in cold weather is hypothermia, and while it is a significant concern, it takes a while to get into trouble and there are lots of signs.

You can die in less than 60 seconds from cold shock. 

There are a few¬†Cody Sailing Club sailors who, for the first time this year, are planning some daysails during the winter – if you are a member and interested in joining us, you know what to do. If you’re not a member and fancy a bit of fleet dinghy cruising in the beautiful waters of the Solent and local harbours, follow the “Join Now” link.

The excellent article with more information is from the RYA.
