Musto Skiff, B14, RS700 and RS800 sailors will be "Totally Stoked" to hear that the Stokes Bay skiff open is still going ahead for the 17th of April in a Covid-safe manner. This will be the first event for most sailors in a long time and the club is excited to get neoprene covered toes back into the water.

Although the event has been limited to just the Saturday, the club would love for visiting racers to join in with Sunday club racing in the Fast Handicap start. The camping and caravan park just up the road (Kingfisher) is open and taking bookings if you're looking to make a weekend of it. The club house won't be open "as usual" but our well-loved Pop-Up Galley will be available for pre-race bacon baps and post-race pasta.

NOR will soon be available on the club website, www.stokesbay-sc.co.uk

For families in tow that maybe don't sail (yet), the beach offers great views of racing and there are plenty of activities in the local area including mini-golf, museums and even an ice rink not too far from the club.

A nod back to normality - we hope to see you soon!
