This Saturday we have one of the highlights of the calendar. Leaving Dee SC at 1000 for those on boats with taxis running from Hilbre around low water.
Don’t forget cash for the bar and please bring any food you’d like to put on the BBQ.
Looking forward to a great day: For those catching a water taxi from Hilbre please ensure you have a buoyancy aid with you.
A quick post to keep everyone updated on what’s going on at the club & on the water.
This Saturday we have the Mirror Open which forms part of the Northern Travelers series & there’s been a lot of interest so far with Mirrors popping up all over the place. We even expect to see Will & Matt swapping Darts for the day!!
For those younger sailors or those less interested in racing, we also have a fun cruise planned, basically sailing with the tide up river for a rendezvous with a flotilla of cruisers led by Admiral Sheriff, with plenty of provisions to share with the Adventurers…..
It should be a great day with a BBQ planned for the evening, for which everyone is welcome to come down.
Racing this Sunday (10th July) is now planned on the tide for all classes.
Note: This is a change from the Sailing Program.
There will be a briefing on the lawn at 14:00 to run through the format of the races.
Next weekend on Saturday 16th July, we have the eagerly awaited Commodores Cruise.
As with most years we will be transporting the bar & BBQ to the sandbank, with rib taxis available to bring out walkers from Hilbre Island from 13:00.
We will also be running Dart joy rides during the day, so if would like to go out for blast then this is the perfect opportunity.
Full details of will be issued next week.
Have a great few weeks of sailing!
