OCSG EVENTS CALENDAR 2018/2019

If you haven't come across canoe sailing before and like the look of it, then come along to one of the events to take a look, chat about it to us and maybe even have a go - many group members will be happy to take you out on the water for you to see and feel what it's really like! Give the event organiser a call to find out details of where to find us, or email us at info@ocsg.org.uk

We offer a wide variety of events with the emphasis being on cruising in company, but with a fair bit of just pottering about and socialising. Visitors are welcome to come along, chat and take a look.

We try to provide a good range and spread of events so that people can go canoe-sailing with others, without having to travel too far. Any suggestions about suitable venues are welcome - volunteers to help organise even more so! A guide for meet organisers has been published here - have a look and see what you can offer or get involved with.

The Competence Levels are the suggested minimum skill level that a participant should have in order to take part:

0=novice, 1 = basic, 2 = intermediate, 3 = advanced See the Competence Levels Page for more information

Weather and particularly WIND conditions will dictate what activities and sailing areas are appropriate for participants, who should heed any advice from the Safety Advisor. The less experienced should not expect to go very far from base until their capabilities have developed and been proven. Support and assistance to help develop sailing and seamanship skills will often be available at meets.

The suggested meet Level assumes that the conditions will be good - if the weather forecast is poor, with strong winds, then the level of meet will also change accordingly. At some meets conditions are challenging such that only more experienced canoe-sailors will go out onto the water and then only locally, close to the launch site to practice strong wind techniques; on rare occasions conditions are so bad that no canoe-sailing takes place at all - please set your expectations with all this in mind, when you plan to come to a meet.
