There will be a competitors briefing at 1130 hrs on Saturday. The water is low at this time so we are asking the members to be at the club early and launch the boats before the briefing  weather permitting.

We were planning a dinner to invite visitors to join us for dinner as we have no clear idea how many will be attending we have decided to cancel this and meet for a drink in the club after racing

Helen and I will be at the club at 9am on Saturday  if you need any help please don’t hesitate to ask

2015 Season Kicks Off at Datchet Open….!!

3 weeks to the Mercedes Open at Datchet (28/29 March)

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to the Mercedes Open at Datchet Water SC on 28th/ 29th March. We’ve slipped it back a few weeks this year (into Spring) so there’s no excuse for those of you who “don’t do Winter sailing”!

It’s a great chance to sharpen your tactics ahead of the Inland Championships at Bewl – and those travelling from afar are welcome to leave their boats at Datchet for the week (let me know if you’d like to do so).

See you in 3 weeks
