Double celebration Double celebration
Arthur Bedford celebrated his 80th birthday with a decisive win in Saturday afternoon's second pursuit race with crew Sue Burton. Did they let him win? They had no choice! Did they enjoy the cake? There was none left! In what other sport can the experience, wile and cunning of an 80 year old beat the youthful enthusiasm of all other competitors? Sailing is truly a sport for all ages!

Jibsheet - News from the Committee of Management and Sailing Committee - October 2014 Jibsheet - News from the Committee of Management and Sailing Committee - October 2014
The Committee of Management is keen to improve how it communicates with the membership of the Club. Many years ago, "Jibsheet" used to be published in between editions of Mainsheet to update members on what was happening at the Club.

For more information, contact Julian Harms, Rear Commodore, or Chris Homer, Chair of the Committee of Management
