Note for New Members: The social events at the club are many and varied. In addition to the regular Wednesday Evening suppers through the summer and the Sunday lunches, there are usually events ranging from Scottish Country Dancing in the winter, culminating in a Burns Night Dinner, to dinners and other social events that complement the sailing calendar such as Fitting Out and Laying up Suppers. The main social event of the year is the Regatta Ball in August, and there are lots of other class dinners and drinks events as well. In the summers of 2018 and 2019 we also held themed parties where guests could dress as extras from Abba and the Beach Boys!
