This coming Sunday's races are the RNLI Pursuit Race (monohulls) and the Rough and Tumble Trophy (multihulls). There is an entry fee of £5 (payable by card, or exact sum in cash, at the galley kiosk before the race, please) which will be donated to the RNLI

Recently-joined members may be interested to know that this is a long-standing annual charity fund-raising event at SYC, although the races could not be sailed in 2020. Usually we have welcomed a visiting team from the RNLI, who have run a stall in the Clubhouse selling RNLI-branded items to boost Lifeboat funds. 

Unfortunately the RNLI have no items for sale this year, and there is also no SYC free lunch. However, food can be bought at the Clubhouse kiosk as normal for race days.

Following on from the successful 2021 Day Sailors' and Junior Parents' work mornings, the last of this year's three planned work parties will be on Saturday 25 September, starting at 10 am.

On the grounds that you might like to meet other members with similar sailing interests, we aim each working party at a different section of the Club membership. Day Sailors turned out in April thiis year and Junior families in July. We suggest that Dinghy Racers join us on the 25th - but any member is welcome to join any work party or even all three! Many hands make light work.
