Liberation Day Regatta

The Liberation Day regatta takes place on Thursday, 9th May.  The Vega pursuit race starts at 10:00, so please arrive at 9am.  And then the sailors will come ashore for lunch.

The House committee will be serving a lunch of Chicken kebabs, Vegetarian quiche, New Potatoes and House Salads, along with Apple tart and Ice cream.

£5 for Adults, £3 for Juniors.

Please sign up in advance at Liberation Regatta  to help our catering, but of course all welcome on the day!

All donations of cakes and salads as always gratefully received.

After lunch, two more open handicap races will be held back to back.  First the Beagle, then the Liberation race.

We only run two pursuit races during the year and they are great fun, it may seem complicated at first but once you have started it is just great fun, please ask us at the club to explain the start sequence if you are unsure.
