Your Committee

If you have any harbour or marina related issues, please do let us know.  Make contact with one of the officers, or any committee member.  We try to monitor facilities regularly, but we can't be everywhere, so your feedback is important.

I've sailed all my life and enjoyed some great racing, but a number of years ago I went to the dark side, opting for destination rather than journey!, but still enjoy the odd yacht race.
