What's on

A superb work party on the 24th October. Thanks very much to the dozen or so who came and helped. The island has been cleared of undergrowth so it won't affect the wind around it so much, we can see across it to mark no.6 and the birds will have some more space for nesting next spring.

Current Series - Winter Series

Leisure sailing Sundays from 11am 

First Race starts around 12pm then two races after lunch. If you don't want to race just come and sail around.
