Annual BBQ and Duck race – Saturday 5th August 2017

On Saturday 5th August we are holding our Annual Club BBQ and Duck race (quackers). The Duck race is kindly sponsored by Elton Marine Services who run all sorts of sailing type courses at the club, including Day Skipper, First Aid, VHF radio etc.

The BBQ commences at 4.00pm after our normal Social Saturday sailing for all. The ducks will be released a little later once they have eaten some orange and a little pate. The first three ducks home win a goodly sum of money,  so get them backed on the chart above the bar for a simple £2 per duck.
