Castle Cove Sailing Club is an active and friendly, family club located on the north shore of Portland Harbour. From small beginnings in a cliff-top chalet in 1923, we have grown steadily and in September 2002 we moved to our present site at the end of Old Castle Road, Weymouth.

During the lead up to the Olympics in 2012 we have welcomed sailors from over 20 countries to join us and train at the club. We have a strong self-help ethos and run an extensive programme of racing for both dinghies and keelboats. In conjunction with our busy sailing calendar we have a full social diary taking pride in being a very friendly club, run by members for members.

Cruising update and activity coming up...

After the successful "cruise" to Portland marina and the berthing exercises and supper I got feedback from some members that they would have come but knew nothing about it! They have now been included in the circulation list but if you know of any member who might be interested in details about the CCSC Cruisers, please let me know.

At the meeting on 1st August various items were agreed. I mention these below. The meetings are nothing if not informal, the bar is open and the discussion between members is wide ranging and informative. They are enjoyable and will worth coming to if you can.

It was agreed to hold this on the long weekend 23/24/25 August . The plan is to meet at the club at 7.00 pm on Friday 22nd ( bring your own fish and chips/ BBQ) to settle the final arrangements ,use the ferry to go aboard and set off 7.00 am ish on Saturday . With a fair wind the 50 NM crossing should be completed by  early evening. We had at least three confirmed entries at the meeting! If you might like to join the cruise  please let me know or just turn up. If there are ANY RACERS out there who would like to use the trip as an opportunity for a channel race then why not get together, sort out the details and enjoy the company in Alderney.

Cruise to Swanage/ Poole.
This has been tentatively been discussed for the weekend of 30th /31st august.  Anyone interested please let me know. There was talk of a YCW cruise to Parkstone this weekend.

28th February 2015. We hope to build on the success of last years event. We will hold it at the Club where we are restricted by the space and therefore the numbers. Put the date in your diary . Full details later.

The subjects suggested so far are;
Diesel engine trouble shooting/maintenance
Coast guard talk and possible visit
Simple glass fiber repairs
Care and maintenance of sails and rope
I there are any particular subjects that would interest you please let me know or come along to the next meeting
