Welcome to Lilliput Sailing Club.
We are a small, friendly, self-help club situated adjacent to The Blue Lagoon on the northern shore of Poole Harbour in Dorset.
This web site is primarily intended to provide information for our members. However, the information in the Sailing section should be of interest to anyone planning to sail in or around Poole Harbour in the near future. Also, if you are considering visiting or joining the club, then the "About Us" section was written specifically for you.
Calling all Lilliput Dinghy Sailors!!!
The first race of the 2014 Lilliput Sailing Club Keenies Series is scheduled to start at 10:30 on Sunday 2nd March.
The races are open to all Lilliput members, although it's a lot easier to compete if your boat's in the yard...
However, even if your boats not in the yard or you're not planning to sail, we would still appreciate your help in running the races.
These prestigious fleets join those already committed to the event; these include the National Championships for the J24fleet, the Tidal Nationals for 2.4s and Southern Areas for the Sonata, Impala and Shrimper fleets.
Now well established on yachting calendars the 2014 event will provide racing over five different start lines, four in Poole Bay and the other in-harbour.
Another sailing season finally comes to an end.
I think for most of us, this has been a better year than previous ones. Dinghies and cruisers seem to have been more active and rallies were well supported when conditions allowed.
Now is the time for our social activities. Maggie has arranged a good programme, which deserves your full support. Please join in as many events as you can and give us a lively winter of entertainment. Thanks to Jan for arranging our Annual Dinner Dance at the Thistle Hotel: cost £25.00 per head, a good and varied menu and live band. Book early to avoid disappointment.
Our Commodore’s Reception was well attended by visitors and club members. Thanks to everyone who provided food (in abundance) and also to Jan Penney for the lovely flower arrangements.
The three cruiser lift- outs went without incident, about 80 cruisers in all, and thanks are due to the liftmasters and all who assisted. Winter lay-up maintenance now begins; don’t forget to winterise your engines.
The Club received a very nice letter of thanks from the Shrimper Owners Association for hosting their Rally in August. Nine boats attended and some people came by car. A barbeque was provided for about 50 guests.
Finally, a thank you to all members who put time and effort into running this great little Club - bar, catering, office, committee and countless other jobs. Enjoy your sailing.
