The Wednesday Evening sailing has started. We've not had much good Wednesday evening weather so far but time is on our side. If you want a bit of mid-week relaxation you could do worse than a gentle sail around the lake for an hour. Safety boat cover from 6pm.
August 13th - Away Day Details to follow
July 16th - The Summer Party. Some late afternoon games and a barby, hopefully outside.
June 18th - The Longest Day race. It will be a relay race of about 4 to 5 hours in which we have 3 or 4 members per team. Each team has its own boat. We aim to start around 11 am. If you can't stay for the whole race, you could just sail for a part of it. We'll let you know if you've won anything.
