The Spring Series starts on Sunday 26th March with racing for NHC Keelboats and PY Dinghies. Based on feedback from members racing is being moved back by an hour with the first warning signal at 14:25. The series will run until 30th April with a break for Easter Sunday on 16th April. Sailing Instructions and Entry Forms are available on the Club website.

Slipway Maintenance Work Party

A work party is needed to clear the slipway before the Spring Series starts. This will take place on Saturday 25th March (the day before racing starts). Low tide is st 15:27 that day so plan to be down for 15:00 to make the most of this period around low water.
