September Update

Well, we are approaching the end of August but there is still plenty of sailing left in the season.
So far this year club members and boats have cruised to Brittany, raced in St. Tropez, Kinsale, schull and WIORA at Foynes.
Our juniors have been very active sailing around the marina and the islands.
