Open Events: Inviting sailors from across the Harbour and beyond.

If you need a crew or want to go out with an experienced helm do contact Patrick Lewis and join the Double Handed WhatsApp Group putting more sailors and crew together we hope to get more boats on the water.

In the calendar of events you will see some shorthand notations - this is what they mean:

Courses: The course is set by the Principal Race Officer (PRO) and can use either named Harbour marks or laid orange race marks. A race is between 45 mins and 1 ½ hours depending on the number of races planned.
