Commodore’s Welcome 2021

Welcome to 2021 Flushing Sailing Club CIO sailing season.

In spite of the limitations imposed by the pandemic in 2020, at FSC we had an amazing racing season thanks to our dedicated volunteers and competitors who are passionate about our sport. As we prepare our SI booklet for 2021, we are looking forward to another great year for our Centenary. It is unbelievable that our club has been in action since 1921.

The old club house has been demolished, piles driven and the construction of the new building is going on apace. The commissioning of a new facility will open a new era for our club and ensure a great future.

You will see from our calendar that we hope to run more of our regular events plus a few new ones, COVID permitting, of course. We would also be pleased to see more of our competitors out and about. For a long time Tuesday evening racing has been very well supported, however it would be good to see more boats enjoying the undoubted benefits of Saturday afternoon racing, including a thrash round a longer course, good winds and cake for tea after. Bliss!

In 2020 Falmouth Sailing Week was one of the few events that went ahead and was well received, plans are afoot for 2021, including hosting the final Saturday from our brand new building.

Happy sailing!
