Wanderer Month: April 2021


Another Cancellation for 2021 Calendar

With regret we announce the cancellation of the “Try-a-Wanderer”event planned for Sunday May 23 2021 at Marlow Sailing Club.

As things currently stand, (following, hopefully, the June 21 planned lifting of many restrictions),  Whitstable YC will be hosting the Gavin Barr Trophy event with racing on Saturday June 26 and  a cruise to follow on Sunday June 27. WandererFest is scheduled to start at Cobnor in Chichester Harbour on Thursday July 8 through to Sunday July 11.

The rest of the programme in August through to October remains unchanged.
