SAILING

Summer is back with a vengeance. This weekend’s racing was cancelled and it’s not looking good for Wednesday night’s Twilight Summer Series 1, Race 2 either.

The Sailing Committee is finalising the Sailing Calendar for 2022 and this should be publicised by next DD.
Well, done to Makers Mark and her crew for their great 3rd place results in the recent West Coast Offshore Race (see results below).

We had FBYC Members on the boats that came 1st and 2nd as well.

Well, done to all that participated.

Wednesday 15th December: Summer Twilight Series 1, Race 3
