2020 Prize Winners

Whilst we didn't manage to sail as much as we would have liked last year, many of you made the most of the limited opportunities.


This involving changing in the car park or driving to the club in sailing gear, sailing boats single handed, press-ganging members of your households and having to forego the post-sailing brews in the clubhouse. When the weather permitted, there were a few socially-distanced post-race beers consumed in the boat park.
