A BUSY WEEKEND AHEAD

.......Sailing On Saturday Class Racing

This Saturday 27 May we have the first in the SOS Cadet and Otter Class Points Series.  There will be separate starts for Toppers, Topazes and 405's plus a menagerie class (everyone else).  It's the best four positions out of five races (over the whole of SOS) that will count towards winning the class trophies - WOW.  Do make sure you are ready and rigged by 10:00 a.m.  

Then on Sunday, at 11:00 a.m. it's the race for the Bill Geddes Trophy, which is also class points for Lasers, 405s, Topazes and Toppers.  The sailing doesn't stop there as, after a short break, it's back on the water at 2:00 p.m. for everyone, but in particular the Cadets and Otters to continue the fun we all had last Sunday afternoon.  

To cap it all there is the Club's "Chill-out" Evening from 7:00 p.m. onwards, with nibbles and drinks, and a spectacular firework display at the end of Clacton Pier.  Come and socialise with all your friends.

Bank-holiday Monday is the time to just get the boat out and have a relaxed sail before the working week starts again on the Tuesday.

Don't miss it, and bring a picnic with you on Sunday!!
