Sailing news: 2020 winners
Published 16:54 on 9 Feb 2021
For obvious reasons, we were not able to have our 2020 prize giving in November, but we did want to celebrate those winners that were able to race - both eSailing and on the water.
As we slowly came out of lockdown, ESSC and ESC ran some adapted racing and series and we also organised plenty of eSailing both at the Club and on the regional scene:
