webcam and tide times

December 3, 2016 No Comments

Thanks to club member Steve Rutt – the webcam is now working again (for Firefox and Safari browsers).

Check it out here

Steve’s also put a tide-times ‘widget’ on the tide page which automatically updates every day to show high / low tides and heights :-)

Check it out here

So now you can visit the club website and get live readings for wind strength and direction, temperature, tide times and a live view of the beach!

(remember the weatherstation is accurate for S, SW, W, NW, N winds but is sheltered by the town from any winds with E in them)

Plans are pushing ahead for New Years Eve which will be a ‘family-friendly’ event.

If you’d like to get involved / help with planning PLEASE don’t hesitate to get in touch!

With that in mind – please remember this is YOUR club – so please – if there’s ANYTHING you’d like to see happening / organising – let us know – especially if you’re up for helping get it going!!!

best wishes,

John Matthews
Membership Secretary

British Kitesurfing Championships

August 22, 2016 No Comments

Wow, what a weekend! – the final round of the British Kitesurfing freestyle championships took place at the club over the weekend and it was a banger!!!

30-40mph winds and an apocalyptic rainsquall mid-afternoon made for some high drama on this 2016 decider.

Big respect to all the riders for charging in such extreme conditions (fortunately the juniors had it a little easier on the sunday morning!)
