2017 Sailing Programme

March 12, 2017
The sailing programme for 2017 has been finalised and a copy can be downloaded/viewed here.

Please note that due to the jetty construction we will be sailing from Maylandsea Bay SC till Mid-may.  There should be plenty of joint racing between the two clubs this year so it'd be good to get a large turnout from the Harlow Blackwater boats.

Thanks to Mark and Clive for their hard work in preparing the programme for us all.

First race is the 9th April ;)
