UK National Optimist Championship - BIG Thanks to all our Volunteers

A BIG thanks to all of our volunteers and staff over the week, also the many weeks leading up to the Nationals, and the Saturday clean-up ably assisted by the rowers - the feedback has been really good from the Oppi competitors, parents, and officials. The event could not happen without you. I was in the fortunate position to be part of the event management team, also Regatta fleet beachmaster, so got to hear lots of feedback at the daily briefing and 1/1 contact with - the RO, Jury, Safety, parents, kids, etc, etc.

PLEASE HELP! We are looking for some fresh Volunteers

We've had an amazing turnout from our club volunteers for the Optimist Event and can't thank them enough. But some of them have have already been here, or will be here, for over a week and we don't want to 'push our luck with them' (!).

So we would be very grateful if anyone who has not been helping this week can spare one hour this Saturday morning, 6th August to help clear up after the Optimist National Championships?

Come and join in the fun at LSC during LRW

Some great socials being lined up to compliment the sailing.

We're delighted to announce that Olympic Medalist and Swimming Commentator Rob Woodhouse will be our After Dinner Speaker at the 2016 Regatta Dinner.

Rob won a bronze medal at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics in the 400m individual medley and he is widely regarded as the best Australian medley swimmer of his generation. He has now just returned from commentating at the Rio Olympics so he can resume his day job of running a sports management company for some of GB's biggest sporting stars.
