SYC is 120 years old!!  It's time for a party!!

On Saturday 20th June at 18:00 we will be holding a one off celebratory pursuit race! We would love as many boats out on the water as possible to mark this momentous occasion, so all of you who don't usually race we'd love to see you out on the water! Feel free to make this as fun as you like fancy dress, water bombs, the world is your oyster! Race instructions to download HERE

There will be a BBQ following racing and of course plenty of drinking!!  Any excuse for a good knees up!

See you all there!!
