What a great Open Day the club had on Saturday for which we were blessed with good sailing weather to show the club at its best. Thanks to everyone who came to see us, and thanks to all the club members who gave up their time to welcome our visitors, give boat trips and show them around our fantastic club.

A special thanks to Keith Taft who organised the open day and Keith Patmore who dealt with all the applications of those who were interested in joining us.

If anyone missed the Open day, and would like to see what we offer with a view to joining the HBSC, they should contact the membership secretary (membership@Harlow-blackwater-sailing-club.com).
