Under the guidance of Malcolm Goodwin and his team our youngest sailors are really starting to find their sea legs and they are looking

Bob's Bell is presented to others who give selfless service to the club, working away behind the scenes to help

  • Congratulations to Piers Lambert & Tim Bees!

    From Simon Redfearn, Vice Commodore Sailing - The new River Start Series series has been an experiment this year and I believe it has been popular and a worthwhile addition to the racing calendar. It was designed as a series to fulfil several functions. To improve racing on low tides, to have starts to windward, to add variety to our course offerings. Also a further benefit has been in training people to be RIB committee

Ron was a member of the club for more than half a century and for many of those years he lived in Fieldgate Dock, meaning he was also one of our closest neighbours.
