At last opening weekend!

The weekend starts with a working bee on Saturday starting at 10.00am to ensure that the club is polished and ready for the season.   Please bring nailing, sweeping and cleaning tools.

Racing starts on Sunday at 12.30am.   It is a great tide.  There will be three races for senior, intermediate and junior classes, with the intermediate and junior classes competing for the Winters Cup.  The programme is below.

It will be an interesting season.   There has been a huge amount of work over the winter as the refurbishment of the club from the earthquake and storm damage starts.   The hard standing and concrete slipway will be ready for opening day and already looks magnificent.

I look forward to catching up with you at the opening.
