Christmas and New Year’s Racing at MKSC

This year Sunday racing falls on Christmas Eve, and New Year’s Eve. We have decided that there won’t be racing officials on duty at the club on these days this year. If people want to sail or hold informal racing that is fine. Wishing you a happy festive break.

Happy Christmas

To all our members, sailors, regulars, juniors, social sailors, racers and everyone who helps out, we hope you have a tremendous Christmas 2017. If sailing over the Christmas period, don’t forget our 2 hour pursuit race on Boxing day, followed by mince pies and mulled wine in the clubhouse.
