Strangford Sailing Club enjoys a stunning location on the northern shore of Strangford Lough Narrows in the Castleward Estate and has occupied that site for about 40 years. After the long layoff due to COVID 19, members have been back training and racing, with all the required safety precautions, the latest outing a testing one yesterday (Sunday) in a very fresh breeze.
The fleet mainly consisted of Lasers and a RS 400, racing in a mix of sunshine, rain and plenty of wind. They managed two exciting races around Castleward Bay for an experienced fleet of sailors, but there were capsizes and a ripped spinnaker.
The club has also been heralded by RYANI for completing its membership census in record time. The deadline is Thursday 13th August.
