Social events have suffered during the pandemic. What is written here reflects what used to happen, and what we hope will happen in the future. The Club has responded well to the pandemic, with enthusiastic use of Zoom on a Tuesday evening, and when permitted, and within the guidelines, limited socialising. The Club also benefits from a monthly Newsletter, Mainsheet, as well as a Facebook group, which helps keep us all abreast of developments.
In any case, the reconstruction of the Clubhouse would have meant that the 2020–2021 winter programme was re-imagined.
The Club offers a varied programme of social events including many interesting and informative talks from visiting professionals, practical demonstrations and quizzes, supported by an excellent bar. The FSC clubhouse is an excellent location to relax and make friends.
As a visitor friendly club, non-members are invited to share our facilities on Tuesday evening throughout the year, and during Saturday afternoon racing throughout the season. The clubhouse is open every Tuesday evening throughout the winter except for a short period over Christmas and New Year, with an extensive and diverse programme of talks and events.
A fully stocked bar is available serving local ales. Sailing suppers are available throughout the evening sailing season with wholesome menus provided by our caterers. Afternoon teas are provided on Saturdays. The catering is provided by members who volunteer to bake and serve. The tea rota may be downloaded here. There is also a handy how to, which explains what to do and where things are in the kitchen.
The Club has WiFi which is available to all. Just ask for the password, which will also be found in the Members’ Area. The Password to the Members’ Area is circulated to all members when they join or renew their membership. If you have lost either password, Contact Us to request the details.
