LARGE OUTSIDE BAR & FOOD

Here at Sussex Yacht Club you may have noticed that we are undergoing something of a transformation in order to breach the weakest point in the flood defences for the town of Shoreham.

Subsequently we are also planning to transform the river on Saturday 31st August into a hive of activity to raise money for our Sailability partners.  This very worthy charity enables disabled folk to get out on to the water, whether they have sailed before, or just because they wish to feel some new exhilaration in their lives.

They require specialist equipment to make their sport more accessible and to smooth the way for easy involvement, and to this end we have pledged to raise much needed funds on their behalf.

We are inviting all local businesses – and anyone else who fancies having a go – to take part in our first ‘Up the Creek’ raft race event!

You will need to create your own raft, using whatever equipment and materials you wish, and bring it along to launch from 10.00am on Saturday 31st August.  We plan to have everyone on the water, and off our slipway, by midday to catch the very best of the tide.

All you need to do to enter or for further information is download an information pack or email info@shorehamraftrace.co.uk

This will be a fantastic opportunity to unite the town, raise money for a fabulous cause, and have a lot of fun!

Our restaurant and fully licensed bar will be open and available for teams and spectators to enjoy our food and beverages.

If, however, you are not feeling inspired to build a raft, please consider sponsoring the event.  A schedule of how you may add your support in this way will be available on the website shortly.

Any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Jenni on email info@shorehamraftrace.co.uk or   alternatively ring the Sussex Yacht Club on 01273 464868 in office opening hours (09.00 – 14.00 weekdays).

We look forward to a fabulous uptake of interesting craft and plenty of family and friends to add their support.

See you there!

Be part of the fun!!
