TDC PURSUIT RACE THIS SUNDAY

.......plus a cruise to the Clacton Sea & Beach Festival

This Wednesday evening 22 June Gunfleet holds the fifth race in its Summer Series, commencing at 7:30 p.m.  It's a great way to break-up the week, relax on the water, and then enjoy a drink at the bar, and a burger or hot-dog in the Clubhouse.  

And on Saturday 25 June the Club cruises up to West Beach where the Clacton Sea & Beach Festival will be in full swing.  Come and join us when we depart from the Gunfleet at 2:00 p.m. for a leisurely sail down the coast; there will be LOADS going on down there - both on and off the water.

Then, on Sunday 26 June it's the TDC Pursuit Race with the slowest boat setting off at 11:00 a.m. from the Gunfleet line, followed at set intervals by the faster craft, until around 45 minutes later the high-speed cats chase after everyone else!  The race will be down to the Pier and West Beach area, to provide a spectacle to the crowds, and at 12:30 the whole thing ends....and whoever is in the lead is the winner.  It's fun...it's exciting...and it's a race you don't want to miss.

HEY....WE'RE COUNTING-DOWN TOWARDS OUR REGATTA....2 & 3 JULY

Yes...there's always so much going on down at the Gunfleet.

Another busy weekend at Gunfleet saw the second training session for Cadets and Otters on the Saturday 18 June (visit the Cadets and Otters 2016 section of the website for the full story, and pictures).  Then, in the evening it was the ever-popular Walking Treasure Hunt when teams of Club members tramped the streets of Holland on Sea, finding answers to questions; rounding the evening off with bacon baguettes and ice cream.  The winning team was the NewJays with the maximum score - some sharp cookies!
