What's on

Leisure sailing on Sundays from 11am 

First Race starts around 12pm then another race after lunch.

If you don't want to race just come and sail around.

We had a very good Brass Monkey Race on the 1st January. Seven plucky sailors in six dinghies raced for an hour, Geoff won with John B. second. We didn't mind the rain that started about half way through, we were just pleased to be able to get onto the lake after several months of windy Sundays (or so it seemed).




Diary Dates

A First Aid Course is planned for Saturday 20th February 2016. Members get first offer but non-members will also be welcome.

Also on the 20th, but in the evening, we are planning a Quiz Night/Fish and Chip Supper /Presentation of last year's trophies, so please make a date in the diary.

Please note the date of the AGM, Sunday 13th March 2016 at the clubhouse.
