The themes are suggestions and we don't have adhere to them, we can play it by ear in relation to the weather and other factors. Other suggestions are most welcome.

BOB is running in conjunction with some fun Fridays which are also open to everyone. 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 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.

Hopefully, the weather will be kind to us this summer and we’ll get some sun, wind and warmth.
