Wanderer Month: August 2020


2020 Events Now Cancelled

Two-man sailing is typically restricted to folk in the same household, changing facilities at host clubs are generally not available and many toilet facilities are closed.  Bars or club rooms are restricted in capacity making organising evenings difficult or impossible.
