Summer Holiday Sailing Camp – Starting 29th July

Tamesis Club will be running a Summer Holiday Camp which will be held during the week starting 29 July. This is now fully subscribed and the detailed logistics of the course are being hardened up.

 Special Notice

‘Twickenham Yacht Club will be running their annual regatta on the weekend of 6 and 7 July.  Racing will comprise two starts on Saturday afternoon, two on Sunday morning and a further one on Sunday afternoon.  Eligible classes are Toppers, handicap, Enterprises, Solos and N12s.  There will also be a BBQ and party on the Saturday evening.  This is a great opportunity to support a local club and try sailing on different waters.  If there are juniors who would like to get involved by racing a Topper, the club can help with boat transport.’
