Kielder Water Sailing Club

First of all, a big thankyou to all those members who provided feedback and ideas for this site or made contributions to content - it is very much appreciated. On this page I provide:

Standards and Design of this site.............

The site has been tested with Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome and (Apple) Safari.  If you need a new version of a browser click on one of the links above.

The site uses the Joomla! Open Source Content Management System (CMS) to allow a much wider membership involvement in the provision of content for the web site plus the introduction of more interactive features and security addons. The 2010 site was based on the design of the 2007 site but translated to the CMS and expanded by Steve Gibbon. The site has been considerably revamped in November 2016.


To those Members who provided me with feedback on design, layout, menu systems and content. There are many of you. Thanks to you all - Steve Gibbon
