Yachting

Dear water sports enthusiasts, 

Our Nuclea Yachting Club section is many-facetted with regard to the various sports that are on offer. Our Board aims at ensuring that these activities run as smoothly as possible.
Please find a brief overview of the options we provide below:

Sailing

We try and organise a regatta on a recreational basis once a month. These regattas, with three circuits each, take place on Sundays, and are intended for the one-design classes. We have a handicap system for this. The winter races start at the end of September and run until about March; the summer races are held in the other period. The final ranking is made on the basis of the ten best-sailed circuits.

External sailors are most welcome to participate in this regatta, for which a small registration fee has to be paid.

Practicing and free sailing is always possible. Participation in external regattas, such as the Belgian championships or the Antwerp Race, can be done on one’s own initiative.

If there is a need for initiation, we can arrange for this. It is also possible to use a sailboat for a short period of time, including participation in our club competitions.

Waterskiing

We don’t organise competitions in the club, except for the slalom competition in September.
Several disciplines are possible within the waterskiing area, such as wake board, slalom, barefoot, figures, etc. We also have some equipment available, such as an air-chair.

Windsurfing

We currently only practice windsurfing on a recreational basis.
If required, a surfboard can be made available.

 

 

Boat trips

Our Club has a jetty where large yachts are also able to moor. This is mainly used as winter berth.
The number of available places is limited, however.

 

 

Additional activities:

When the time is right, we organise festive activities such as a mussels party or BBQ. You will be informed of such events in due time.

On Sunday mornings and Thursday afternoons, everyone is welcome to come and play petanque in the fields behind the canteen.

A limited number of fishermen with larger boats can make use of our slipway to enter the lagoon; please consult the Board first.

There are mutual agreements with the Diving section for divers to practice in the lagoon during the winter months.

Regulations

In order to run all these different activities as smoothly as possible, we naturally need regulations, which are attached as an Appendix.

Please read through them at your ease, and remember the items that are important for your discipline.

The key elements are common sense and an open mind.
