WORK WEEKEND ON THE EVE OF THE 2024 SAILING SEASON

........ and the excitement mounts

On Saturday 9 & Sunday 10 March it's time for the Gunfleet Work Weekend.  A wide range of jobs, from large to small, await the assistance of the members, getting the Club ready for the start of the 2024 sailing season.

And the Club is open, as usual, every Wednesday evening from 7:30 p.m. for a drink and a chat.

There is always so much going on down at the Gunfleet.

 

Latest Reports

Gunfleets Cadets and Otters headed to Air Hop (Jump Street) in Colchester during the Half-Term Holiday to "let off steam" and keep fit ready for the up and coming sailing season.  As well as giving the trampolines a good thrashing, they also played Dodge Ball, and Football, before taking the Obstacle Course Challenge.  Time flew, and so did the Cadets and Otters, as they bounced from one activity to another; only coming up for a breather and a quick drink.

Gunfleet Sailing Club held its Annual General Meeting last Sunday 3 December when Commodore Richard Walker welcomed those members present and invited them to look back at a full and successful year of sailing and social activities on and off the water.  Treasurer Peter Downer reported on the Club’s finances and gave reassurance on the financial soundness of Gunfleet; he went on to thank the generous sponsors – Orsted, Odiin, and Nucleus for their continued support.
