TSC Regatta on July 20,21st

We need a number of people who won’t be racing to assist with the event, so please let us  know if you are willing to help. Ashore we need help with admin and galley, and afloat someone to assist with mark laying (training will be given), Race Officers assistants, and possibly rescue. If you can help with any of these please advise Ian Ainsworth or any member of Sailing Committee

Blaydon Race Postponed due to weather

Having consulted prospective sailors and had a look at conditions at Newburn it has been decided to put off tomorrow’s event for now. The National 12 fleet had decided themselves not to come. I am sure some will be disappointed, but more will be relieved (including me). Hope the weather improves and we can get afloat soon.
