Bangers and Darts. Last Friday evening members enjoyed a pleasant evening at the club, dining on the legendary Terry Evans bangers/ faggots and mash with onion gravy, then fierce competition for the club annual darts championship. After several rounds the championship was won by the legendary Terry Evans, and not on double one! Many congratulations to him; just reward for his efforts earlier in the evening.
First Aid Course. On Saturday the club put on a first aid course run by Taff Owens of Pembrokeshire Performance Sailing Academy. For some it was a refresher course; others a first. A pleasant day was spent obtaining worthwhile instruction, made all the better by Taff`s knowledgable presentation.
Club Sponsors The Club is pleased to announce that Lewis Lewis & Co Ltd have kindly agreed once again to sponsor the annual club regatta. The Club is pleased to continue a relationship that has now been running for a number of years. The agreement has enabled the club to offer a team prize in the Regatta, which seems to have proved attractive; the number of entrants has more than doubled in the period of the sponsorship.
