Vintage Group and Junior Member day on June 8th

Glorious weather at the Clapham Common boating pond today, which kicked off our fund raising efforts to repair the club house roof. Many thanks to Tricia and Bridget for looking after the stall with our new junior members Theo, Eden and Beth. Skipper Toys had very kindly put a display board together of their fantastic wooden pond yachts, and we had sold all but 2 of our stock by mid-day.

So we are off to a great start with our fund raising efforts, and now have a raft of new Junior and even Infant members enjoying the pond with their parents.

Members of the Vintage Model Yacht Group also visited the pond and there was a wide array of model yachts on display from early 10 Raters to the far smaller but now highly collectible Star Yachts of Birkenhead. There was also just enough time and  wind for some racing with the Solings as members got some much needed practice in before the Nationals, which are being held at Clapham Common boating pond in July. We’ll be posting some more news about the Soling Nationals soon.
