Boats - strong winds

After the very strong winds some boats have been damaged, boat No 433 & 133, please ensure your boat is secure and all masts are taken down.

RACE RECORDER OPPORTUNITIES

We are looking for more race recorders to join our dedicated team. The season is fast approaching and we would like to recruit more recorders to help support club racing. It’s a great way to get involved with your club and to get to know other members and see club racing and events close up. Please contact Sally Gostelow (sailing.secretary@wyc.org.uk) if you are interested. Free social membership is offered to those who are willing to commit to 10 duties or more. Sailing Sec.
