Thursday Evening Racing

As the evenings are getting longer and the weather more like summer (we hope!) it is time to join the weekly Thursday evening handicap racing.  The summer is split in to two series and both allow all classes of boat to race together with the final positions being determined by a handicap calculation.
So, if you sail a Laser, Merlin, Mirror, Topper or any other class you can take part.  If you don’t have your own boat then club boats are available to borrow.  The Fireflies will also compete for their fleet trophy as part of this race.
The first start will be at 1915 so make sure you are on the water in plenty of time.  The 18′ Nationals start at 1917
An added feature of this series is that a hot meal is served after racing and the bar is also open.  Non-racers can therefore watch the on- the-water action and then enjoy a river-side drink and dinner with the competitors.  If you would like the meal, please sign up in the book in the clubhouse or email Nicky Johnson nickyjohnsontamesis@gmail.com
This is a fantastic way to spend summer evenings and we look forward to seeing the usual enthusiastic turn out and some new faces too!’
