As the present board if full we are about to make a new one. Club records show the following are eligible for entry since 2007: 2008 - Christian Brewer (XOD) and Mel Rogers (Dart 18) 2009 - Mark Barnes (Australian B14 Nationals), Sophie Mackley (National 12) 2010 - Gavin Barr and Mark Skipper (Wanderer), Mel Rogers (Dutch Dart 18 Nationals), Chris Lewns & Tom Pygall (Cherub) 2011 - Tom Pygall (Merlin Rocket) If we have missed anyone please let the Sailing Secretary know.


A big thank you to John Boorman and his team of helpers for running a very successful Club Championships last weekend. Also thanks to Ian Embry and his safety team. Without these volunteers it would not be possible to run events such as this. Thank you all very much indeed your efforts are very much appreciated. For a full list of results please see the results page on this website.
