Dear Sailors and Friends,

LAST WEEKEND

Junior Training & Autumn Series Sailing – Sunday 10th April 2016

Junior training was active even with a lack of wind. We brought out our new training sails sponsored by the National Lottery Commission! Though there was no formal racing, we had a number of boats out on the water.

Rowing proved to be a wonderful morning for Alfred’s as the water was like glass! With the Rowing Champs coming up at the end of April, training in such conditions was ideal!

 

THIS WEEKEND

Saturday: The club house will be open from 08h30 to 15h00 on Saturday with John Salway on duty, then again from 18h00. The upper deck is hired for a function.
