The day is open to all those wishing to learn more about the club and even to have a go of sailing and other marine activities.
The Flying 15 and the M-Class fleet will once again race for the Ffemmy, a trophy symbolising season supreme with the winning fleet being the first to start racing on all club days. Last season this was won by the Flying 15 sailors, but the M-Class fleet is keen to win back the uniquely shaped trophy.
