Gin, Wine & Espresso Martini night - July 14th 2018

Welcome to our mid-summer event, ‘Gin, Wine & Espresso Martini’ night. We are combining this with a night to celebrate the hard work of our many volunteers. 

It will follow the format of the hugely successful ‘Gin’ nights. £15 will buy you 5 tickets which you can use to exchange for a special Gin, glass of wine or Dai Thomas’ special Espresso Martini. 

We have booked musical entertainer Matthew Cook and our active volunteers will have a buffet to say THANK YOU for their ongoing support. 

Please use the simple form below so we can gauge numbers. Thank you.

Social Sailing

Sat 2nd Jun 2018 by Richard
As you've probably seen on the calendar, social sailing starts this Saturday at 10am.


If you want to come along feel free, it's a session on the water to come out and have fun outside of racing.


It's a non-instructed course, you can either bring your own boat / windsurfer / kayak / paddle board, or you can book a club one using the normal form.


See you there!
