Our final Wednesday evening sail turned into a PICO NIGHT when  club  members help rig and launch our new club boats for training and sailing skills development thanks to a Sport England Grant.

Club members who are new to sailing and do not have their own  boat have a wider range of club boats available to sail at either  recreational, family or racing events on our calendar.

During September it is planned to have family sailing afternoons to encourage those who have recently learnt to sail through our  summer programmes to continue to get out on the water to practise their skills and to take part in a novice race as an introduction to racing.

Next year the club will be able to use the boats for Push the boat Out  open day events and for start sailing courses  with support from the RYA.
