" With the calendar live for booking your volunteer slots this year, please sign up. If you enjoy planning ahead for the year or just the next coming weekend, there are sure to be something you can do.

The season opens mid March with the slipway being laid, as I covered in my email, it's a great way to meet new and old friends.look forward to meeting you on the sea front. Many thanks Peter"

A huge thank you to those who have kept the club running over the winter with planning the sailing programme, cadet socials, attending the work parties and maintenance and supporting the bar when it has been open.
