We've come to the end of another exciting season at CVSS; the boats have been "laid up" and won't be back in the water until April 2015.

It's the time of year to thank all CVSS members for their involvement and support.


  • To the sailors, their families, assistants and teachers thank you for your enthusiasm and support
  • To the volunteers thank you for your many hours of committed work on and offshore

We've been doing a few sums to pass the idle hours and discovered that to run our sailing in 2014 we needed more than 5300 hours of volunteer time. That number doesn't include running our essential "Back Office" jobs – membership, the website, Dutyman, fundraising, attending events etc. so a big thank you to all our volunteers.

Here's to another successful season in 2015 – already the bookings are rolling in.

Date: Wednesday 8th October 2014
Time: 7.00pm for 7.15pm

CVSS – Sailing for People with Disabilities


We particularly need help on Tuesdays and Saturdays

Sailing on Bury LakeCVSS is a local charity, staffed entirely by volunteers. We provide sailing and katakanuing for local people aged 2-85 years who have a variety of disabilities.

We work Monday Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday at Bury Lake, the Aquadrome Rickmansworth, 9.30-3.30. Have you got some time to offer? We particularly need help on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

You don't need to have worked with disabled people before.

You don't need to be able to sail – or to want to – we have vacancies for lakeside "meeters and greeters" as well as for those wanting to develop sailing and katakanuing skills. If you do have sailing skills you will, of course, be very welcome.

You just have to want to help.
