New 2024 Dates for the Diary

Please note, our first sail and display day at Bodenham Arboretum has changed from the 31st of March to the 7th of April 2024, thereby moving away from the Easter weekend and hopefully allowing more members to attend. The corresponding booking on the 7th of April for Lakeside has also been deleted. A full list of dates can be seen at the bottom of this page.
