KILLINGTON SAILING. Sailing at Killington Reservoir on Tuesday evenings is now in full swing and planned to carry on every week until the end of August, meeting from 5.30pm.
This 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. If personal kit is required from our store then this can be picked up before or after Sunday sailing or Friday evenings. Going on a different evening is possible if you let John Gibby know.
Also see Facebook and liaise with John Gibbison email….johngibbison (click) or ring 07816530848.
This is an opportunity for all members.
