Oppie Beach Club

With snow still on the ground I have taken the decision to cancel the first Oppie Beach club on Saturday 31st March.

Due to current weather and water temperature I feel conditions are not yet suited to young children (or Adults!) spending time in the water, although boats will be available should more experienced Cadets wish to use them under their own parental organisation if we have unexpected favourable conditions.

The first Oppie club will be on the 21st April.  We will be running a rigging session to kick off the season on Friday 20th April at 7pm.  This will cover all club cadet boats;Oppies, Picos and Laser 4.7 and go through where they are kept, rigging, and packing away procedures.

A full programme of events and training will be published on the Cadet notice board over the next couple of weeks.
