Launch of new committee boat and dedication to Sue Thomas

August 16, 2019

You are invited to join us on Sunday, the 18th August at 10:15am for the launch of Lightning Sue. The first race should still start at 11:00.


Lightning Sue is our new committee boat, purchased in the Spring and updated over the Summer.  She has been re-engined, re-decked, re-painted, re-wired, horns and a new flag system installed and photovoltaic panels put into operation.


She has been re-named Lightning Sue in memory of Sue Thomas who died earlier this year at a young age. Sue’s husband Dave, who has kindly sponsored much of the purchase, will be at the club this Sunday to perform the launch.



We would be delighted to welcome as many people as possible, and many of us will have fond memories of Sue and her enthusiasm, energy and love of sailing.
