Then later on in August over the August Bank Holiday we are pleased to be running the National for the CVRDA (Classic and Vintage dinghy Racing Association) http://www.cvrda.org/. Booked in already is a range of dinghies from a Flying Dutchman to a minisail and a fleet of Moths
Whilst qualification is for dinghies designed before 1965 any one can join in the weekend and is welcome to race alongside these traditional racing dinghies. We have a social and meal with bar on the Saturday night. Lets try and make the club sing again and give a traditional Clywedog welcome to all our visitors this month.
We are looking for volunteers afloat and ashore for the CVRDA. This is your chance to see how fleet racing is done from Committee boats and we need safety crew and galley helpers from Sat lunchtime. Please contact me on 01686640305 or firstname.lastname@example.org or catch me at the club.
