Wow – What a Weekend

Wow – What a Weekend

So, Whitefriars weekend kicks off the season with a bang!!! Saturday was a really super training day, with twenty boats out on the water we all kept Paul and Rob busy with advice, tips and tricks for getting a Lightning going faster. The weather was kind, starting us off with nice gentle breezes, building to a good solid wind in the afternoon. Practice with the beats, starting and short course racing made for some super learning opportunities with Paul and Robbie on hand to point out the error of our ways. Just to prove the point Paul jumped...

The new two part mast arrangement have had rave reviews and John received a new LN order to boot. We have an extensive range of good second-hand boats on the For Sale page at the moment, which is fairly typical for the start of the season. I hope the flow of boats to sell keeps going throughout the season. We are...
