As it appears that Summer may be arriving – at last! – I thought I’d take the opportunity to remind you all of the races that we’ve got coming up over the next few weeks.

We’ve got two midweek top of the tide races (Cockburn 4 and 5): the first is this Thursday (12th) with slow fleet start at 18:40 and fast fleet following at 19:00. For those based in the marina there should be locks available at 18:00 and 18:30. The second is two weeks later (26th), same day, same times.

We’ve also got three weekend races: the Plate is a down tide race this Saturday – in addition to having it’s own trophy it’s also the first race of the Summer series – the Regatta race follows this Sunday and is our annual down tide pursuit race (see previous email for details of both).

Then there’s the Marina race on Saturday 5th July: this top of the tide race is the second race of the Summer series and coincides with the Festival on the Quay arranged by the marina and the Mini Beer Festival run by Hall & Woodhouse – should be a great weekend.

Hope to see lots of you on the water soon!
