Upcoming Event

Weed Cutting on the top lake 

There is a work party Saturday 14th July on the top lake to cut back the weed around the swimming course. It start at 9am and will finish around 1pm. Please can all swimmers be aware as patrol boats will be on the water, swimming will be restricted between these times. Volunteers are always welcome to come and help just ask for Andy Smallwood or John Whiteside. Novice sailing is then taking place on the main lake so come along and have a go at sailing. 

Thanks   

Health Warning

It has come to light that there are areas of the club grounds that contain the invasive, dangerous and toxic Giant Hogweed plant. 

Please take care when using the grounds not to stray from the mown areas into the long grass or weeds as a member has been badly burnt. The weed looks very similar to common Cow Parsley but causes a chemical burn if brushed against skin. 

The burns take up to 48hrs to appear as red scarring and blisters, please seek medical attention if burns appear. The effects on children skin are much more severe, please take care.

Located near Stanton Harcourt, WOSC is a friendly family sailing club with the facilities and atmosphere to encourage everyone to enjoy sailing. Please explore our web site to learn more about us.

The club owns two lakes surrounded by grass and trees that provides ample space for sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, walking, picnicking and enjoying outdoor activities. The prime purpose of the club is to encourage its members to learn to sail and to then help them to improve their sailing skills through leisure sailing or racing.

West Oxfordshire Sailing Club is proud of its friendly atmosphere that provides facilities that can be enjoyed by the whole family including the non sailor.

We run a wide range of activities that include: training, racing, and a programme of social events.  We also run a number of "come and try sailing" days in which you can try your hand at sailing with an experienced sailor.

The club has excellent facilities with a large clubhouse with bar and galley and a large area of decking giving good views over the water. There is ample space for car parking and designated berths for 300 dinghies. Concrete slipways are provided for launching and recovery of craft. 

The club is run entirely by volunteer members. Every member is however required to carry out duties to help with running the racing (see Club Rules) from OOD to race assistant or Galley.
