KILLINGTON SAILING. Sailing at Killington Reservoir will be continuing co-ordinated by Dyane Sylvester and John Gibbison. Also see the Morecambe Sailing Club Facebook Page for updates. Killington is an inland lake which many of you are now familiar with and it provides a good chance for you to do some helming and racing with some instruction as well as the possibility of some Safety Boat practice and instruction.
