Old St.Nick and his helpers will be making their annual visit to Elwood Sailing Club on Saturday 14th December, so be there with your kids, grandkids and their friends to welcome Santa Clause back to ESC. The party will kick off after sailing around 5pm with some kids games and party food before Santa’s arrival and followed by a BBQ, and the good news for all you scrooges out there is that it’s free again this year!
Parents & guardians, please remember to bring a small labelled gift for each child attending as our Santa will have been out sailing all afternoon and will not have time to shop beforehand…
The new ‘Rules of the Elwood Sailing Club Incorporated‘ (the Club Rules), which were adopted at the ESC AGM on the 14th September 2013 have been approved by the Registrar of Incorporated Associations at the Department of Justice and so came into effect on the 14th of October 2013.
The Club Rules and associated ‘Policies & Procedures – Membership and Subscriptions‘ are now available for reference under the Membership dropdown on our homepage.
The buds are bursting, the days are getting longer and we are experiencing our first spring cold snap, so it’s time for the ESC 2013/14 season Opening Day!
Join Elwood Sailing Club Commodore Rob Anderson, Flag Officers, committee members, sponsors, honorary life members and special guests and assorted local worthies in welcoming in the new season at the clubrooms on Sunday 29th September from midday.
The opening ceremony at 12:30 will be followed by an introduction of new members and racing information session hosted by ESC Commodores Rear & Vice, Croften Dawson and Mark Foster at approximately 12:50, before adjourning for a traditional 2pm race start (weather permitting), and followed by a sausage sizzle after racing around 5pm.
In case of inclement weather the bar will be open from 1pm with sailing DVD’s on the big screen and an early sausage sizzle for all to enjoy.
