Social Events Update

Curry & Quiz Night – 10th June

Come along this Friday evening and enjoy a chicken korma or chicken balti along with rice, poppadom and naan. Vegetarian option available.

We will be having a fun quiz tonight, so get your teams together!

Food will be served from 6.30, quiz will start at around 7.30, see you at the club!

Please book on WebCollect:


Knotty Night – 17th June

Don’t forget to book your places for our ‘Knotty Night’.

Our first ‘seamanship’ evening of the year, and an opportunity to practice all the essential knots you need to stay safe and secure when afloat.

The 2nd seamanship evening will be ‘Turning the Tides’ in July

Before you start practising you can enjoy a ploughmans supper served from 6pm, and the bar will be open.

Every knot serves a purpose, and knowing how to tie a selection is vital knowledge to possess when going on the water. Ropes and knots have a unique and ancient history and without them sailing would never have developed into the pastime that we love today.

This will be a fun evening for newer members, but we’d be delighted if long-standing members came along too to pass on knowledge and join in the fun.

There is no need to eat to participate, but please book if you fancy coming along to give us an idea on numbers

Here’s the link for booking:


Friendly Friday Rowing Race Night – 24th June

This month we are lucky to be joined by rowers from Hamble, so an enjoyable social evening is planned. As usual all are welcome to come along and join in with the rowing, or have a drink and some food if you wish to, the more the merrier. The lovely rowing captain Jane will tell you more.

We will be serving jacket potatoes with your choice of filling.


Raring to Row for 24 hours 1st -2nd July

The rowing section are rowing for 24 hours to raise money for a great cause

Watch out, I will be accosting people to purchase raffle tickets, and I would be grateful if anyone has anything they would be happy to donate to the raffle.

Let’s try and make as much money as possible for this amazing children’s charity! Action Medical Research for Children

On the afternoon of 2nd July we will draw the raffle, the bar will be open and food will be available, so please come along and cheer the exhausted rowers in!

Friendly Friday Rowing Race Night

And It’s that time again. An invitation to get together for an informal race night at Friendly Friday on 24th June at 6pm. This month we are delighted to welcome rowers from Hamble River Rowing as our guests.

Not one to be missed, these evenings are great fun. In brief we’ll mix the teams up as always (randomly selected) and race around the Broom channel buoy and back.

The trophy will be awarded to the fastest team and the most important coveted wooden spoon will be hand painted and yours to keep forever. Although I don’t recommend eating your supper with it. As always our wonderful social committee will feed us. It’s jacket potato with a selection of fillings to choose from this month and food tickets can be purchased via web collect. Food, drink, and lots of fun. Come along and race or just come to watch and get to know each other. All our new club members most definitely welcome. Friends and family very welcome too.

  • 6pm – meet in the clubhouse.
  • 6.15pm – Briefing on course info, rules and safety.
  • 6.30pm – let the battles commence.
  • 8pm – Prizegiving, food, and Bar.

Event is free, but if you’d like food please order via WebCollect asap

Ebb & Flow:

Since I’ve had to add them into the Diary Dates section, I’m going to emphasis the new entries here. There’s a Curry & Quiz Night on 10th June – that’s this Friday, so see above to book quickly. There’s also a follow on to the Knotty Night already scheduled for 22nd July – Turning the Tide, on tides in the harbour. More details to come in a future Tidal Diamond, but from our club website:

“Following on from knotty night, our next seamanship evening is Turning the tide. Please sign up for a beginner’s look at how the tides work in our harbour, and what affects them. Plus some basic training on all those floating buoys out there and what they mean for you. Did you know, the moon and the sun have their own gravitational fields, much like Earth. Whilst they won’t pick us up and make us float off into space, they are powerful enough to move the oceans around the planet…literally pulling the sea towards them. For more fun facts and key information for being out on the water come and join us There’ll be chilli and rice served between 6pm and 7pm and our speakers will start at around 7pm. You don’t have to eat to come along, but pre booking either way would be appreciated so we know numbers to expect/cater for. Although this evening is developed for newer members, our seasoned sailors, rowers, and paddlers are very welcome as the more advice and guidance in the room the better.”

As ever, feel free to drop me an email at this address, it is always nice to hear from members. Any ideas of things to include in the Tidal Diamonds would be most welcome.

Let’s be careful out there.
