Friday night sailing 20 Oct!

Looks like a beaut night for Friday night sailing tonight folks! An incoming tide and a light northerly. We aim to start on the water at 5pm so hope to see you there by 4.30pm.

This might be the best chance to get out and sail this weekend as Sunday looks like it might be rather windy at this stage (although this may well change)

Don’t forget to text Fish and chips orders to Liz on 0274 909955 by 6.00pm if you are staying for dinner and the club night afterwards.  All members are welcome of course!
