The sailing season has started….

Last Sunday there was an impressive turn out of sailors for the 1st scheduled race of 2014 but unfortunately the 30+ knot gusts kept all ashore.


To continue running our races we need people (spouses, retired sailors, cruiser sailors, mummies & daddies et al) to be race officer and rescue boat crew.

Please volunteer for a morning in some capacity.


If you need training or help that will be given.

A ‘race officer’ training is in the offing

Powerboat level 2 and safety boat courses are available.


If you are interested please contact James.


NB there are opportunities this Sunday!
