During the World Cup we will also be running a World Cup Wednesday Pursuit Twilight Race, so please organise some crew and we would love if you can host some guests as well. Let the office know if you will be able to take people onboard.
Welcome the Cat 7 Classic boats, if you are registered with the Classics, next Wednesday we would like you to come join us in the Twilight race. We will be sending out a rescue boat to allow the cat 7's to join in. Email Danielle on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are also looking for more volunteers to assist on water this weekend, I need about 3-4 people including one driver. Please advise Danielle if you are available to assist with the Club Marine Series this Saturday.
