The Little Red Boat   2017-06-12     Pat Fleck

We have been kindly given a small Sailboat which we will call Shoestring 5.
We intend to berth it in front of CTD on a swing mooring. The boat will arrive next Friday for us all to have a sail in her.
Whether to keep her or not will depend on the use it gets and how easily it sails but no doubt it will be a more stable boat than the faster Lasers and may suit some of our members. Please use CINCO to record use in our booking diary on our Website.
So come down next Friday and give it a go.
