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!
