News Update - 21st & 22nd May 2016

Pretty quiet weekend members wise. The Old Wellingtonian Sailing Association rally dinner on Saturday was to all accounts a great success.

The annual de-weed on Colonel's Hard early on Saturday morning was well supported but the paucity of strimmers was sorely felt! Well done to Joe Robertson who won both Redwing races on Saturday and to Colin Samuelson who won Sunday's Edwardian race. To read the full race report click here
