Twilight Sailing Starts October 11th

This is always a great time on and off the water, and for those that are looking for a more social and relaxed style of sailing then this is for you. We have had a number of new yachts arrive over winter and I suggest that trying out twilight sailing is a must. It's a great way to get on the water with friends and family and enjoy your boats (and you never know you might pick up a prize on the day) There is a Pre and Post Christmas Series, Fleet racing at 6pm (with Spinnakers ) then from 6.15 pm its white sails (non Spinnaker) pursuit start and the trophy is well contested. It's a great way for the club to show itself off to potential new members so if you have spots for SailPass people then please let the sailing office know.
The restaurant will be taking orders up to 9pm so bring your crew in after racing and continue the fun.
