Over the years we have made strong connections
with other sailing clubs and associations . . .
Every sailor who has completed RYA Stage 1 is invited to join in a weekend at the Mount Batten Centre in Plymouth. As the young sailors progress through the RYA Dinghy Training Scheme they are taken on a stage appropriate coastal endorsement weekend. The association recognises that the lake has limitations in the experience it can give the youngsters so the trip to Plymouth provides a more varied challenge.
WWYSA members are invited to join the Commodore at Roadford Lake Sailing Club for a camp and sail weekend. With sailing, windsurfing, socialising and camping under canvas or in your own caravan on offer. We have a huge BBQ one night so you will get to know us all!
Building on the successful London 2012 bid, Weymouth became home for the Team GB to train at. A new centre was built and became known as the National Sailing Academy. Following the tragic death of Andrew Simpson – a gold medal winner at the 2008 Beijing Olympics – the centre has been named in his honour. As the youngsters progress they will also visit the Andrew Simpson Sailing Centre with WWYSA.
We also join in local Open Meets, particularly at Shearwater Sailing Club. Having another lake so locally to ourselves it offers the members a chance to race in competition conditions and meet other local sailors, many who have been sailing for a lot longer than themselves.
