Skippers: Adorn your boat, dress up your crew and join the annual Parade of Sail. 

It will be a fun day and there are great prizes for best dressed boat or crew.  Boats should assemble at 1145 hrs for a 1200 hrs start.  The Sailing Office can lend you flags and give you the sailing instructions.

All participants will receive a complimentary bottle of wine and a cheese platter. 

Entry form available here.  Please provide a brief description or history of your boat for inclusion in the programme.

Landlubbers: the festivities will start with a glass of bubbly on the lawn at 11am followed by the unfurling of the new ensign and the traditional cannon fire salutes at noon. You may then enjoy lunch in the Clubhouse, either the Squadron Grand Buffet in the Carabella Room or lighter fare in the CCA.

Please note this is a busy day and reservations are essential.
