    It is with great sadness that we must announce the passing of our friend and OSC Lifetime Member, Eric Lee. 

    Eric was a club member for over 20 years, and many of you will have known him through his work as a Sailing and Powerboat Instructor. He was also a dedicated Sailfree Volunteer as well as a Trustee and Director of the Club. We will greatly miss his dry sense of humour and presence at the club. He was a true gentleman who made a positive difference to the lives of many people.

    Eric's funeral will take place on Friday 22nd November, 12.20pm, at Lawnswood Crematorium.  Club members are invited to attend.

    No flowers please, donations will be taken for the RNLI. 

    Thank you.

    Please be aware that there is a large wasp nest underneath  the diving board on the island. It is best to stay away from this area until we have dealt with the situation.

    Please advise Juniors particularly not to go near the diving board either from the island or from the water.

    Hi all

    Just a reminder that the first Sailing Sunday of the season will be this weekend. The safety boat will be out from 10am. There will be activities for Juniors in the morning, general social sailing and the usual calendar of Sunday racing.

    The Sunday Sailing sessions will then run every other Sunday until the end of the season.

    We need volunteers to make these work. If you can, please sign up and get involved. The volunteering sheet is available in the Members section of the website. 

    See you there!

    Thank you to all who volunteered to organise and run Buoyancy Day, and all the members who came down. The clubhouse was packed. Prizes were awarded, food was eaten, boats were tested, and a great race was run in challenging conditions. Well done to the 2 crews who stayed dry and everyone else - good capsize drill practice!
