Class Dinner

Class Dinner

We have booked our now traditional, meal down the pub, after the Rum and Mince Pie event at West Oxford. This is a very informal affair and everyone is welcome; those sailing and those spectating, CA members and non-members alike, partners, family, the dog!!! it is one of those occasions to chat sailing and Lightning’s in relaxed good company.




This year we are back at the Windrush Inn, which happens to be directly opposite The Laurels B&B for anyone needing to stay over on the Saturday. Carvery is £9.50 per head, or you can choose from the specials board. Table booked for 5.50/6pm.

If you are attending, could you please let Caroline know, so we can give numbers to the pub, we had twenty odd last year, so we are hoping we do even better this year.

There is a Forum Thread already running, courtesy of Emma who kicked it off.


The Windrush is just a few miles from the Club. The idea is to finish the racing, pack-up and disappear to the pub for a meal and a chat.

Boats can be left at the club, or taken to the Pub, it has a very large car park.

Post code for the Pub is: OX28 6DJ

Their website can be found here: THE WINDRUSH INN

Bed and Breakfast is available nearby (actually The Laurels is right opposite the pub), but some other B&B options listed below.

Everyone Welcome
Everyone is welcome, whether sailing or not, even just come along to watch a bit of the racing in the afternoon and go for the meal. We do need to have some idea of numbers, so we don’t entirely surprise the pub, either way, so it would be very helpful (meaning fairly essential) that people drop us a note if they are planning on coming along, so we can give the pub numbers.

Could those interested please, please drop Caroline an e-mail to that effect, see Contacts Page for e-mail addresses.

Guests, Partners and Significant Others, are very welcome, so if more than one in your party, please remember to say so, they are all very welcome.

Forum Thread is setup so we can chat further. This is a nice opportunity to round off the season and enjoy a small social event, even put a few faces to names you’ve read about here and on the Forum. Hope you can come along.

And it’s not just for the racers amongst us, all Lightning owners and friends are welcome to come along, whether CA members or not.

Looking forward to meeting everyone and catching up with old friends.
