Downer On An Upper For First Race
Gunfleet Sailing Club started its 2012 sailing season in style last Saturday 31 March when no less than 75 members squeezed into the Clubhouse to enjoy the annual Fitting-Out Supper. Following the traditional fish and chip supper Commodore Richard Walker welcomed all those present to a very special year, the Club’s 50th anniversary, and outlined some of the exciting things planned for 2012. Once again the Cadet and Otter Section was vibrant and the Cadet Committee was planning many fun events on and off the water, the Club was host to the Solution class National Championships and Gunfleet had special commemorative polo-shirts produced to celebrate it “going gold” – at the same time as the Olympics come to London. The Club members then charged their glasses and toasted 2012, with Commodore Walker declaring the Club well and truly “Open for business”.
