Opening Day 2023 - 7th October

Put the 7th of October in your diary and come and celebrate the opening of the new season with fellow members. The theme is Back to the 80's so find your shoulder pads, bright clothing and leg warmers and enjoy the day. There will be a mid morning ceremony on the lawn followed by the Sail Past and then a casual race (for those that want to). Then it's back to the club for the food and fun on the lower deck. Full details of the day will follow.
