If you are just waking up after the winter and want to take your boat out of hibernation, what better place to do it than the Exmoor Beastie?

A friendly warm welcome awaits you from our Commodore Colin Allan and our talented galley staff, who will be serving hot and cold food.

This year's Beastie starts at 12.00 on the 24th March and is a three hour pursuit race which is part of the SW Winter series.

We look forward to seeing you on the start line. Find out more on the Wimbleball Sailing Club website.
