It is a non elitist egalitarian pursuit were all sexes and ages sail and race against each other.
We have become a victim of our own success though and we need to raise funds to but new double handed training boats for our cadet fleet and to build a sailing inspired imaginarium play area to inspire the toddlers and young children to follow in their older siblings foot steps.
