Recognising that we have had a long time off the water, we welcome members who would like to cruise rather than race over the two days.
For members looking to warm up, fine tune themselves and/or their boats, there will be racing on both the evening of 31st March and also Saturday 3rd April. Please check the calendar for details of times/ formats. Again we would like to encourage all our members who would prefer to cruise to join us.
