Has your belt got tighter over Christmas? Are you suffering from the January blues? Then get yourself some fresh air and exercise down at OSC by helping us clear trees and overgrowth on the shoreline and island.
Please bring along any chopping tools you have, loppers, brushcutters, chainsaws etc, and the appropriate gear - helmets, gloves, boots, warm clothes and of course your buoyancy aid.
Tea and coffee provided but remember to bring some lunch. You don't need to bring any tools if you don't have any - there will be a lot of wood to shift and we need all the helpers we can muster.

This Dinghy Sailing course is designed to follow the RYA "Start Sailing" and "Basic Skills" (Levels 1 & 2) Adult syllabus.
On successful completion of this course you will be able to sail a dinghy in any direction and rig and launch in moderate weather conditions. The RYA Level 2 certificate is an Internationally recognised sailing qualification and an indication that the holder has a basic level of understanding and practical competency.
The syllabus covers practical sessions such as rigging, launching and recovery, sailing techniques and manoeuvres, ropework and capsize recovery. Background theory includes subjects such as "rules of the road", basic meteorology, clothing and equipment and emergency equipment.
Tuition is given by trained and qualified RYA dinghy instructors with an emphasis on safety and fun! There will be Safety Powerboats on the water at all times to ensure your safety afloat.
The course will be run over 2 Thursday evenings and 2 weekends to give you maximum time to fulfill the requirements of the syllabus. It is really important that you can attend ALL of the practical and theory sessions as it is not guaranteed we can help you catch up with things missed.
Theory evenings 7 - 9pm
19 and 26 March
Practical weekends 9am - 4pm
21/22 and 28/29 March
Please note that the minimum age for the RYA Adult courses is 16 (there is no maximum age!).
