Stingray groups

Due to changes in the numbers of Cadet in Stingrays, We have needed to revise the teams. The revised teams will he posted at the YC before registration this afternoon.

This year Stingrays is as popular as ever but is relatively young and inexperienced so we have worked really hard to make the teams as balanced in average age and experience as possible. Thank you for your support with this as we move towards another fantastic week on water and the beach.
