The Cherub Class Association has organised one of its fun 'blasting' days at Queen Mary S.C. a 750 acre expanse of reservoir near Heathrow. This is a great opportunity for anyone who has wondered what sailing a high performance skiff is like to come along and have a taste of it.

There will be a number of Cherubs offering the opportunity for rides from 11am onwards to mid-afternoon, 27 September. No need to book just turn up and introduce yourself to a Cherub sailor, however if you have a time in mind feel free to post it on our forum thread.

Cherubs are fast, exciting twin trapeze boasts, so a reasonable level of sailing experience is required, however you do not need to be a serious racer to come and have ago. This is all about experiencing the fun and excitement you can find in 12 feet! If you have a trapeze harness please bring it, otherwise we are sure one can be found to fit.
