September 2017

What a busy summer it has been for our ESC Juniors!  It started with Junior Race Week at the end of July. Just a few weeks before we were all sweltering but this week we were all soaking, with some strong winds too.

Thank you to Sam Tweedle and Hugh Watson for organising and to everyone who volunteered to help the event run smoothly.

This was followed a couple of weeks later by COW Week. The weather was much kinder to us for most of it and we had 116 Juniors out on the water during the week. We had a trip to Fowley, rubber duck chasing, ice creams at Nore Barn Woods, movie nights, a treasure hunt, a quiz, a disco, some Hungry Hippos and, more than anything, capsizing!! A fantastic week was had by all, and thank you to everyone who helped with both on and off shore duties to make it successful.

We had some of our Juniors head off and race not just in Weymouth for the Optimist and Tera Nationals but in France, too, at the Tera World Championships.

If you haven’t had enough yet then on Sunday 3 September we have our last Family Fun Day for 2017 starting at 0930. Come along and join us!
