The themes next to dates are just suggestions and you don't have do any of them, just sail as usual. Welcome to other ideas, please suggest. Come to our pre season dinner and discuss, 

Also this year, WOW is running with the fun fridays which are open to everyone. I will be down with my children so anyone is welcome to join in and I can facilitate for WOW if needed. (crew, boats, etc..) There will be safety boats out on the water.

Fun Friday dates are Friday 2nd June, June 16th, June 30th, July 14th, July 28th.

DATE FOR DIARY  is the 24th and 25th June Adult training weekend.

This weekend will include RYA level 2 sailing, RYA seamanship course and start racing. WOW and BOB are running alongside this for just improving sailing, getting out on the water with support from DI's and AL's. They will be a social event on the Saturday evening as well.

Lots of exciting things planned this year, so I hope to see as many of you out on the water and fingers crossed we have some nice summer weather!!

I will continue to send out emails to remind of the dates and who is coming. I have set up a facebook closed group for WOW (public can not see the posts), I will try to add your emails later but if you are on facebook and want to join please ask, the name is WOW Dell Quay Sailing Club and to find me I'm under Hilary Sparkes. If you are having trouble. We can also share thoughts from our sailing time on there too.

See you soon
