This year the club spent a lot of time asking its members, and others in the village, what the club could do differently to get more people on the water - whether in dinghies, cruisers, kayaks or paddleboards - and whether racing or just having fun. The result is a programme for members this year which is designed to appeal to a much broader set of people, while keeping in place the things that people have enjoyed in the past.
For families, this year the club will be running a series of Sunday afternoon BBQs through the summer, with on-the-water treasure hunts and fun events on the water for the kids. The club has the usual full programme of dinghy races on the high tides, but there will be a number of coaching sessions with video feedback to help people new to racing, as well as second starts to some races for people who are nervous on the start line. There are camping trips, pub trips and trips to the River Exe cafe for motorboats, paddlecraft or sailing boats. For cruisers there are various events in company, and the club is running a scheme to allow prospective yacht sailors to have a go, and perhaps meet yacht owners in need of a crew.
As ever there is a full programme of social events, including the friendly Mariners Munches and Friday evening talks through the winter, and this year LSC will again be hosting the party for the Exe River Regatta on 25/26 July.
