WEDNESDAY EVENING SAILING ARRIVES

.......time to beat those mid-week blues

This Wednesday evening 25 May Gunfleet starts its series of Summer races, 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 there's a heap of happenings at the weekend, with Cadet and Otter class racing, as part of SOS on the Saturday, plus the race for the Bill Geddes Trophy on Sunday.  Then to round things off there's a gentle cruise to Frinton on the Monday - a perfect bank-holiday weekend.

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

Weekend Starts With SOS & Ends With Ladies Who Launch

Peter Downer explains to a new batch of young sailors just how to make your boat do what you want it to
It was a very busy weekend for Gunfleet Sailing Club, starting with Sailing On Saturday on 21 May for the Cadets and Otters.  In blustery conditions, with winds gusting up to force 6, twenty-one of the Club’s younger members turned up to take part.  Peter Downer took those new to sailing under his wing and, with the aid of a Topaz on the beach, went through the theory of sailing; whilst Paul Davis took those that were experienced young sailors onto the water for some practice at getting a good start.
