Update from the Committee

Slipway Progress

The contractor managed to get the first two pours of concrete done as planned last week but unfortunately due to the closure of the concrete supplier the planned third pour did not take place to the area where you will see the reinforcement in place. The contractor worked right up until Saturday 28th March but it looks as though works will now be suspended for the foreseeable future.

You will note temporary rock placement and lot of rock sitting on original slip for storage reduces full width of slip in certain photographs!

Other Sailing News

Four RS Quba’s are loaded up for transportation from RS in Southampton to CSC. Hopefully they will delivered soon, and in time for us starting up sailing activities. Additionally the race marks are all launched to enable a quick start to the season once we get the all clear.

Now the contractor is off site the boatpark and main gates are closed. Access, if absolutely necessary, can be arranged in advance by emailing yard@carrickfergussc.org    


The Club and its grounds remain closed and while we are missing our sailing and our socialising the most important thing for now is the health and wellbeing of our members and staff.

We all need to do our best to stop the spread of Coronavirus and the best way to do this is to STAY AT HOME


  • only go outside for food, health reasons (collect medicines or for daily exercise)
  • if you go out, stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times;
  • stop all unnecessary travel;
  • do not meet with friends and family – keep in touch using remote technology such as phone, internet, and social media;
  • you can ring NHS111 for information or advice and they will help you decide if you need to contact your GP;
  • wash your hands well and often, and avoid touching your face


If any of our vulnerable or elderly members require assistance or support, please contact secretary@carrickfergussc.org or contact us via social media
