Remainder of Autumn Series Cancelled

Dear All

Further to the updated advice provided by the RYA we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the remaining 2 Sundays of the Autumn Series. Both the General Committee and the Sailing Committee are in agreement that organised racing presents an increased risk to competitors, safety crews and the battery team.

This is very disappointing especially given the great turnout of boats and the enthusiasm shown by everyone to get back to racing. Our focus to date has been to keep members as safe as possible and we believe that the decision is sensible given the current circumstances.

Open sailing will be available for anyone who wants to book a session via the website and go for a sail, however no safety cover will be provided and members should consider the conditions and their experience before deciding to go out on the water. Please review the advice on the website; https://www.carrickfergussc.org/back-to-sailing/back-on-the-water/

We would recommend that only single handed boats and same household crews participate and everyone adopts a cautious approach.

Thank you to all those who have helped to make the shortened series a success, especially the Safety and Battery teams.

We are very hopeful that 2021 will be an extremely busy year of sailing at CSC and are speaking with various classes who intend to hold Championship events at the club.

Thank you for your support in 2020

Club Closure

Dear Members

In line with new Government Covid-19 Rules we will be closing the clubhouse bar tonight at 11pm for a minimum of 4 weeks.

We will still be contactable on social media and emails.

We hope you and your families stay safe.

Best wishes 

Carrickfergus Sailing Club Committee

Sailor of the month is back!

It’s been a while since the club has been represented at an open sailing event. On 19th & 20th September 6 of our sailors represented CSC at the RYA Youth Championship held at Ballyholme.

The team performance was excellent and a credit to the hard work of the sailors, coaches and parents in this very challenging sailing season. 

Conditions proved extremely tricky, but Mateo Moore put in an outstanding performance and secured 3rd place in the Topper 4.2 fleet of 17 boats including a race win. Also making him sailor of the month for September!

Well done to all of the team who took part:
Matthew McLernon 
Louise Leonard 
Lucy Marshall
Chloe Craig
Roma Moore
Mateo Moore

Our Junior sailing is going from strength to strength and it’s fantastic to see so many sailors having fun on the water.
