Prize-giving 2022

Posted on Updated on

A very cold & frosty morning greeted us at The Flash. Chris Jones literally broke the 6mm of ice with the dory. This & lack of wind led to Chris’s decision to cancel the last Frost Bite Series race.

Simon Jones (Commodore) thanking all in attendance for what has been a very good year for the club.

We managed to train 5 dinghy sailors this year, 2 to RYA level one & the other 3 to the higher level 2. Simon then presented level two certificates to Alex, Donna & Mia.
