We would love to see sailors coming out of the woodwork and getting back into small boats. If you haven’t got a boat, challenge a mate, book a couple of the club Topaz and get amongst it – It really doesn’t matter what type of boat you are sailing as long as there are other boats of the same type to compete against! If you wish, you can even sail as a crew of 2.
