There was no racing last Sunday at Welland Yacht Club as it was the annual family camping weekend.

Saturday afternoon saw the camp established then it was to the water with anything that floated.

From windsurfers, paddle boards, kayaks to a thoroughbred racing skiff, all took to the water followed by barbecues and an ice cream van – finishing the day off with a quiz and sitting around the fire until the small hours.

Sunday started with junior sailing which was well attended then it was up river to the A16 bridge for a picnic and a quick game of rounders.

In a change to programme there will be junior sailing this Sunday (9.30-11am) followed by the novice regatta featuring three races.

Anyone interested in trying sailing can contact the club via email secretary@wellandyachtclub.co.uk
