Cruising is encouraged at weekends and of course on summer Tuesdays. If you want to cruise on Wednesday you must volunteer to do a Wednesday duty  - safety cover on Wed is provided by Wed sailors.
The winter programme consists of Sunday racing and we often have more winter racers than summer. Winter-only memberships are available, for one or both of the two winter series.
Throughout the year there are Open Meetings for our adopted classes and squad traning.
All sailors please pay attention to our Sailing Safety Regulations
