Home / Sailing at W&OBYC / Racing / OULTON WEEK / Introduction


Dear all,
As always, there is a huge number of volunteers working incredibly hard behind the scenes to organise and prepare for this week, from cleaning pontoons, filling rotas, sorting entries and results, making sure the bar has enough beer(!) and everything in between. This week couldnt happen without these people, so I am thankful for having such a hard-working team around me.
As usual we have a busy race programme throughout the week, accompanied by a wide variety of social events in the evenings (including the ever popular Oulton Week quiz!) There are plenty of things for juniors too, again, my thanks must go to Veronica, Jackie and Jason for putting these together for us.

I hope you have a very enjoyable week with us and I look forward to seeing you all, either in the club house or on the water!

Kyle Beamish
