Club says 'thank you' to sponsors


sponsor partyThe club welcomed the Mayor and his wife, plus sponsors and helpers who had made possible the aquisition of our new fleet of RS Feva dinghy's. Wine was poured by committee members whilst a wide range of canapes made by Christian were served by the cadets to the guests.
The cadets also put on a small exhibition of how to launch, trim and recover a spinnaker on the Feva, whilst a photographer from the Echo took shots of the sponsors beside the dinghies they had funded.
This was one of the first official engagements for the Mayor and he expressed delight and his eagerness to endorse what the club through Phil Samways was doing, making sailing accessable to the youth of the town.
