More news from the Jolly Harbour Yacht Club

"Following a couple of great weeks on North Beach with dinghy racing, beach BBQ with food & booze to your choice, it is clear this has become a fun social afternoon for the Yacht Club. We shall be there again this coming Sunday and everyone is welcome. The first 2 weeks have given us a good idea of the format for the future. If you wish to race it is a meagre EC$5 per race for Members and EC$10 for Non Members, if you just wish to lime and enjoy the fun of watching the racing (and the capsizing!) there is NO CHARGE! BBQ grill and coals are supplied so all you have to do is bring your cooler, food and drink. The dinghy area on North Beach is perfect for such an afternoon with plenty of palm trees for shelter.
Come along and check it out and, if you feel up to it, challenge our current hot shot, "Big Al" Ashford to a race or two.
Rigging starts at 12:30, racing begins at 1:30 and the BBQ fires up around 2:30.
Bouyancy jackets must be worn on the water so if you have your own please bring it along although the Club do have a good supply.
See you there!
