Bill and Liz take first place in the Ladies Day Trophy.
Perfect conditions led to some interesting racing with several new members taking to the water.
John Sykes and Jimmy were pipped at the post by less than a second on corrected time!
Well done to all those who took part.
Public flock to the club for the Open Day
At this year's first open day we had a really strong performance with just under 100 people attending on the day and many signing up to join the club on the day.
Thanks to all those volunteers for helping out!
Light winds for Tankard Trophy!
The sailing year got off to a good start on Sunday 22nd March with the the first trophy day of the new season. Winds were light as competitors took to the water and it never really got going. A good day for light people and light boats!
Well done to Liam Reece and Connor Philbin who took 1st place in the Club Enterprise. Joe Hitchen who took 2nd place in his Laser and Graham Crabtree who came 3rd in his Solo.
Big thanks to the Charlie Hitchen the Officer of the Day, the other competitors and special shout out also to Tony McKone taking part in his first race at the club.
This year we are offering boat advisors to help members with any issues they might have with their boats. If you have a new boat and are unsure how to rig it or if it has been a while and you would like a little help, please email Charlie Hitchen at Charlie@wigansailingclub.org.uk or Mark Hardy Membership@wigansailingclub.org.uk. They will either be able to help you or put you into contact with someone who would be glad to help.
