On the Water
Between April and October we have both IRC & Cruiser class racing every Sunday.  Racing is run under both IRC and a Temple handicap system for our cruiser classes.
Yacht races start at 10.15 on Sundays and run for between 2 to 3 hours. The start line is 50 metres off the pier head and on race days you will usually find an audience watching the yachts competing for the best position on the start line.
