Mooring Raft Refurbishment July / August 2019.

For attention of all mooring holders.

The mooring raft has been re-decked and is now ready for use. A big thank you to Roger W for pulling the raft onto the beach (with his pick up!), and to Dave B for his help in the refurbishment.

A great morning's racing on the water! 

The Keelboat Shoreline Challenge trophy race was well worth postponing to sail in such beaut conditions on the reserve day - Sat 7th Sept.  Good fun was had by all both on and off the water - the addition of a Duffer's Golden Shackle prize had everyone sailing at the top of their game in order to avoid collecting this one - however someone had to be awarded it...... Colin and Mandy were the disputed winners! The celebratory glass of bubbly slipped down a treat over lunch. Thanks to Tommy & Zandra for organising and providing the trophies and bubbly.  Next year it's intended to put the race back to it's Friday afternoon schedule and list it on the fixture list to help other keelboat & cruisers put it in their diary as a race to do.   For more photos please go to the 2019 gallery page.
