West Lancashire Yacht Club 24 Hour Race
As you will see from the sailing
calendars, this event will be taking place on the weekend
15th and Sunday 16th September 2007.
As a club we have been sending a team for
years. There is a row of commemorative plaques along the
of the clubhouse that marks our unborken participation. We
also been quite successful on some years but this event is
a sailing event, it is also a major social occasion.
This year, we are once again sending a
club has decided to buy a good secondhand Enterprise and
has offered to prepare it for the event. Having got a
boat, we need
a team. Ideally we could do with at least 18 to 20 people.
not have to be an ACE sailor as you see sailing of ALL
over the weekend. All we need are club sailors, both helms
with the enthusiasm to have a go. The usual stint is about
or so (roughly 4 laps) and if we get enough people, this
doing two stints during the 24 hour period. Off the water,
is the disco in the big marquee on Friday night and a
of groups again in the marquee on Saturday night. The bar
clubhouse never seems to close (although it ran out of
in 2004, DISASTER!!). There is a restaurant in the marquee
very reasonably priced food over the weekend and if you
are in the
camping area the canteen in the Scout building also
Just outside the camping area are a choice of fast food
McDonalds and Pizza Hut being the most memorable but there
more by the time of the race.
So should this have whetted your appetite
