As well as the 6 races in Sole Bay we have a fun social programme planned to which all members are welcome, the bar will be open Friday and Saturday evening with Adnams bitter on tap and on Saturday evening we have a BBQ provided by Mills & Sons Butchers.

Other News

In May we hosted a successful Open Day as part of RYA Push The Boat Out Week and 30 people enjoyed a sail on the River Blyth in our laser 2000’s with a number of them becoming new members of the club. We look forward to seeing them on the water and in the bar!

The quiz night was a great success, 8 teams competed and £193 was raised for the Learn to Sail programme and RNLI.

Meanwhile the Training programme continues to flourish with 7 sessions completed this season. There are a few places left particularly during the middle of August and towards the end of the season, so please get in touch with Mike Carter if you would like to book.

Sunday racing has been quiet so far, but with the weather improving there is still plenty of time to get on the water.
