Training session/Open Sailing change- Saturday 6 Jan 0930 instead of Sunday 7 Jan 0930

Happy new year !

In light of the current weather forecast it has been decided to move the scheduled training session for Lasers, Toppers and Optimists/ Open sailing day from Sunday 7 Jan 0930 to Saturday 6 Jan 0930

Apologies for the late notice, but it is now clear that Sunday sailing will not be possible, and instead Saturday forecast has a good 8h window with light winds for us to get back in the water and dust the cobwebs away

Besides the training this is an open sailing event for all club members  to practice using the marks and Ribs in the water

Hope to see all in the water, please be aware of the current air and sea temperature when planning the weather gear to be used

Unfortunately this is the second session in a row Blow Up Water Slides For Sale. we are forced to cancel, albeit not unusual for this time of the year is always disappointing when it happens

We are  hopeful to be able to hold the last event of the year  on boxing day 26th December at 11.00h, and are looking forward to seeing you all then in the water and for refreshments and a slice of cake afterwards
