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.

Both are fresh off the back of Basso cup victories, and I say both as Knighly had wrapped up day 1 with 3 bullets, but Sam replicated this on the lighter day 2 and took the overall cup from Kev & Phil, then Nick Griffin, with some great performances inc from Lucy Jones - 7th in her Topper.
The weekend before last (and just before the really nice weather made a late appearance), the man at the back of the Glen & Sam INT14 show jumped into one of this years new batch of light singlehanders and showed the way home to win the 37 strong 7rig RS Aero fleet National title sailed from WPNSA. His string of 1st's looked similar to another of Glen's results this year!
During the busy week/weekend just past - the following CCSCer's were in action around the country:- INT Canoes Richard (commodore version), and Hugh (De-Iongh version) made the trip east, planks and all, to Stone SC for the Int Canoe Nationals - final report link below, showing an impressive full set of results for the very early 'canoeist' Richard (barring trip back DNS for CCSC Commodores Reception!), and an impressive 9th in one race for Hugh.
Phantoms The recently lesser seen Nick Orman got back in to a familiar Phantom for the Nationals at Minnis Bay, and must have enjoyed the experience - scoring an impressive 4th from a very healthy 44 entries. Detailed report and photos below:-
Contenders Nick Grace started his French motorbike touring holiday with 4 days of light shifty Torbay stress at the Contender Nationals, and despite dropping a few on the last day, mangaged to stay within the top 10. Before you ask - I didn't beat my brother by some way, and infact nor did Nick!
Report - may be ...sometime.
Merlins Sam & Megan Pascoe continued their fantastic season by putting themselves on the podium at the Silver Tiller event at Starcross, on the same points as 2nd! Results below.
