It was a blustery, bitter northerly with a large cloud system to the west that saw the fleet off.

    19 Apr 2017

    Four A Raters took to the River Thames at Thames Sailing Club, Surbiton for the 3rd Tuesday evening of the season.

  • ​Commodore's Musings - January 2017

    29 Jan 2017

    I hope that you have had a restful and battery charging holiday season, which may seem like ages away, and are now looking forward to a successful 2017.
