    Racing Rules evening

    Always wanted to understand the rules of dinghy racing better.  Good understanding of the rules will help you more competitive since part of the ‘water-based chess game’ that is sailboat racing is using the rules to your advantage!

    Guest speaker, Jeff Coate (Notts County SC) will ensure you have a full grasp of how the rules apply to the best sport in the world!

    May 10th starting at 7:00 pm.

    Refreshments will be available.

    All members welcome!
