Our sport attracts and supports all level of sailors from club through to Olympian, along with aspiring to recognised yacht designers offering an inexpensive way to try their hand within the various International and National classes in the UK and abroad.

Were the boats still working? Would there be too many crab lines out? A few of the locals decided to air and put their lasers on the water. That was if they were still working.
