New Members Welcome Evening 26th JuneProvided that Step 4 of the government guidelines for Covid easing goes ahead on 21st June as planned, the committee would like to invite all members to a social evening at the Club on Saturday 26th June. The purpose of the evening is to welcome new members to the Club, and to provide an opportunity for those new members to mix with those of us that have been at the Club for longer. We are planning a barbecue at around 6pm after the scheduled on-the-water activities for that day, followed by a quiz in the Clubhouse. This will be the first social event that we have been able to hold since the 2019 Christmas Party, so we look forward to seeing as many members as possible.Self Service Bar & GalleyAs the country move out of Covid restrictions, we can start to make greater use of our Clubhouse facilities. As previously advised, since Step 2 of the government guidelines for Covid easing we have made the bar and galley available to members to buy drinks on a self-service basis for consumption outdoors. Self-service will continue, even after restrictions are lifted. MBSC has a long tradition of self service for the bar, and although we have often had people to run the galley at busy times, self-service for the galley was also common. However, we do have new members, and we now have contactless payment available at the Club, so we thought it worth providing some guidance. Guidelines displayed in the Clubhouse.
Course and any further details are published on the WhatsApp sailing group

Maylandsea Bay Sailing Club was founded in 1930s and was formally known as Maylandsea Bay Yacht Club until the turn of the century. The clubhouse on the site has been of many types, including a floating clubhouse, until the current brick building was built and opened in 1966.
The current club offers a bar and social area upstairs, with a covered veranda offering uninterrupted views of the local sailing waters and countryside. The upstairs gives a good view of the sailing area for those who want to watch in the comfort of the warm in the winter months.
The ground floor of the club has a galley and seating area for refreshments, along with male and female changing rooms with newly refurbished showers. For members, the changing rooms/toilet facilities are also accessible when the clubhouse is closed. Also on the ground floor you will find notice boards with images, sailing and other information.
The exterior of the club has a private car park to the East, along with a dinghy park and grassed area suitable for picnicking and enjoying the outside. To the west of the club is a further dinghy park, which is also used for camping and winter storage, along with the safety boat storage compound. To the rear of the clubhouse, there is a double size garage used for maintenance and limited storage of sailing equipment. In this area we also have a Kayak/Canoe storage rack.
Maylandsea Bay Sailing Club has a full seasonal programme for Dinghies – with joint handicap racing with our neighbouring club H(B)SC – Keelboat racing, Cadet/short course racing, Training, Kayaking, Paddle boarding and Windsurfing. Added to this we have our very sociable regatta week – Maylandsea Bay Week
Every year the Club holds an open day in early spring to give you the opportunity to see the Club, meet the members and try a sailing boat or Kayak. Sailing is organised for all ages in dinghies and keelboats with experienced helmsmen.
