There will be no Club racing this weekend.

There will be no car parking to the west of the clubhouse, except for windsurfers in the far car park.

Christmas Party – Sunday 14th December

The Club has traditionally held a Children’s Christmas Party. This year it is open to members of all ages. Father Christmas will still arrive across the water, give presents to the children and there will be a magician, but adults can enjoy the celebration this year as well with mulled wine and mince pies.

The party will start after racing with the bar open as well as offerings of mulled wine and mince pies, during this time the magician will be entertaining the kids, at approximately 4,30 Santa will arrive by boat. An amazing sight and very special if you haven’t seen it before.
Christmas gifts will be given to the children before he departs in his boat. We would like to arrange a table of party food but will be asking for people to bring a plate so if you would like to help please let Dave know. A change in the format this year is that there will be no charge for tickets but parents are asked to provide a present for there own child or children that is wrapped and clearly labelled.
If you have any questions regarding the Xmas party please contact Dave on or 01788 814418.
