The Dell Quay Solo fleet is vibrant and friendly.  Members can be relied upon to turn out in all conditions and ‘give it a go’. With owners varying in racing experience everyone has someone to sail against.  However, for those at the sharp end of the fleet, competition is keen and much Club success was achieved in the 2013 season.
