Christchurch Sailing Club launches 150th anniversary celebrations on 28th April

CHRISTCHURCH Sailing Club is preparing to launch its 150th anniversary celebrations, inviting the local community to an open day at the end of April.

The club, located on the quay in the heart of Christchurch, will host a raft of interactive exhibits and activities for all the family.

They will welcome the RNLI, which will be doing a demonstration, as well as many local organisations, such as the local marine police and Fire Watch, the National Coastwatch Institution (NCI), the Border Force and many others.

There will be sailing races on the river, mast climbing and rope demonstrations, sustainability projects, local businesses and boats galore, along with food and music.

Christchurch Sailing Club (CSC) has been home to recreational sailing since the mid-1800s. Newspaper articles describing CSC’s existence date back to 1874, although recreational sailing in the area was well-known long before that.

CSC commodore Keith Barkway will compere the event. Along with his organising team, current club members, and office staff, Barkway hopes the day will bring people together to celebrate the birthday of one of the town’s long-standing institutions.
