Social programme - overview
The Club's activities afloat are supported by a full programme of social events. The Social Committee is chaired by a Rear Commodore who is a Club Officer elected at the AGM each year.
The Bar is open every Friday evening and Sunday lunchtime throughout the year. It is also open for the programmed social functions. During the season, it is usually open on Saturday evenings and sometimes opens on other days for post-race drinks or simply to allow members to enjoy the evening sunshine with a beer on the decking overlooking the bay (when the flag is up the bar is open!).
During the season, members enjoy food on the west terrace cooked on BYO BBQs or by pop-up caterers. This may be accompnied by 'Boules on the Beach'.
Dinners are held in the Ward Room at the start & end of the season with a Fitting Out Party in March/April and a Laying Up Supper in October/November.
