RYA Cymru Wales​ OnBoard Acorn Llangorse Regatta 2016

A fabulous weekend of sailing with breezy shifty conditions on Saturday followed by light to moderate breeze on Sunday giving all a chance to learn & shine! Our Llangorse Juniors did a fine job and scooped a whole host of Trophies. The Club would like to thank all the sailors, parents, helpers and volunteers for coming to the RYA Cymru Wales OnBoard Acorn Regatta this weekend. Thanks also to the many coaches and volunteers from other clubs who came to support their sailors! See you all again soon!
