Easter Weekend Social and Sailing.
The Season is nearly upon us. After a bit of practice this weekend for the early birds our first trophy weekend is on Easter Saturday and Sunday for the Deep End Trophy. We hope as many as possible of you will sail to start the season with a bang.
Tony our Social Guru writes.....

So you are going to our esteemed Captain’s “In at the Deep End” drinks party on 4th April? As it is destined to be very well attended we thought that we would take the opportunity to extend the fun factor by adding in a Meal at the Club. We have therefore reserved the Jubilee Room for supper to follow at 20.15. Please book directly with the Club (the two course menu will be on the website shortly).

Dress for both is smart casual (or if you might be planning to join in the disco later make it party gear!).
If you have not already responded to the drinks party invitation please email Mike HERE.


Swallows IT. comes of age.
Anything can happen when a fleet like ours comes up to date with their IT.

We now have an Updated Web Presence on the ISC website.

The idea is that all the normal traffic of news, reports, event plugs, reminders and copies of the Swallow News go on the HOME PAGE. That way you only have to log in to one page and you know they have not missed anything.
The other pages have been tidied up with all the information about the Swallow, Owners, ISC Class, National Class, Racing Programme, Boats for sale, borrow or charter and the Photo Galleries are now all where they can be found.
Also we now have a Swallow Facebook Page. The link is on the HOME PAGE. Just the place for all the gossip and informal coordination of who’s sailing next weekend. Please click “Like” on the page and post away.
The club capital Appeal.

There is a very important appeal in progress at the moment within the club.
The Commodore writes…..
“The concept of the Capital Appeal is simple – If all Full Members aged 35 and over make 6 monthly payments of £44.17 during this summer, they will save a total of £849 in Development Levies, subscriptions and debt interest over the next 11 years to 2026. The figures for Spouses are exactly half those. We very much hope that some members will donate more than this, as happened in Phase 1 of the appeal made to bond holders.
We also very much hope that members in other categories will consider contributing to help with this. If we can get subs down it should help us attract new members which in turn will make further subs reductions possible for all.
Please could you respond online at ”
Swallow Crewing Coordinator.

Finally, don’t forget the fantastic new service that Christine Graves is kindly offering to the class this year. If you are a boat owner needing crew at a weekend and you contact Christine by the Monday/Tuesday beforehand at the latest she will do her best to put you in touch with someone to sail with.
She can be contacted on and it goes without saying that she is the person to contact if you would like to crew in a Swallow in any capacity.

Thank you,
