year there will be the customary holiday in Brittany in July, and possibly a week at Minorca Sailing in October.
Poole "Week" will be

of the venues that we have used for many years for our racing events are also
ideally suited to our non-racing members. So the weekends at Bala
and Whitwell (Rutland Water) are now for
both racing and social sailing. Both of these offer extensive waters, and our
custom has always been to have a meal together on the Saturday evening. Camping
is available at Bala on a nearby campsite, and at Whitwell on site. These will
both be 3-day weekends, from Friday to Sunday.
We will be again racing/social sailing at Carsington SC, near Ashbourne, in the Derbyshire Peak District. We will race on Saturday and you can sail both Saturday and Sunday. Another venue suitable for our
social sailors is Brogborough, the only one of all the locations which Seavets visit which is solely for windsurfers - no dinghies or canoes to get in our way!
A Seavets group meets
to windsurf once a week on the south coast from April through to October or November.
choose safe locations as we have no rescue cover on these occasions, but of course
we keep an eye on each other while sailing.
