Wednesday Evenings

Wednesday evening racing runs during summer evenings from May until the end of August. Racing starts at 1930, allowing plenty of time to get down after work, and there’s normally a social crowd in the bar afterwards.

There are two series that take place through the summer:

  • Wednesday First Series, from May-June
  • Wednesday Second Series, from July-August

“Special Saturday” Fun Regattas

The club certainly isn’t only about hardcore dinghy racing. From May to September we organise regular fun regattas,  where our younger members can develop their skills in a supervised session with fun races and exercise. Sweeties are often involved !
