This Sunday sees the last Series race of the Season, the Chilli Wotsit 5/5. Weather depending, we're hoping you can make it down to beg, borrow, but not steal, a boat and to get out and compete in the two races we have planned. Dress up warm and wear suitable clothing as it's getting colder! We're hoping also to continue Sunday sailing up to and including the Christmas Pudding race (11 Dec), again dependent upon the weather and conditions, so check out the club Facebook page (www.facebook.com/thamessailingclub) to see what's going on week by week. See you on the water, Matt
