    Final Slipway Concreting Work Party this Saturday 24th February 2024.

    As you may know, we are looking to introduce short format racing within the racing programme later in the year. This is seen as a way of providing an exciting alternative to normal racing as well as a stepping stone for new sailors to transition into the main fleet racing.
