Lake Clean Up Day, 10/3/12

Our first scheduled lake and clubhouse clean up day was an eventful one, with close to a skip bin load of rubbish consisting of microwaves, car tyres, crutches, piping, scooters, bikes, wiring, bricks and other treats being removed from the lake.

A very big thank you for a great job performed by the following members showing the¬†Birkenhead club spirit of getting in and getting your hands dirty is once again alive. To those members who missed it, next drinks are on you ūüôā

IOM Ranking, Bartley Green, 3-4/3/12

Over the weekend Birkenhead skippers contended with rain showers, sleet, snow, gusting winds and a general battle of the elements in the first IOM Ranking Races of the season. Results show that a long winter series of close racing has kept our members at the top end of the fleet and we look forward to the next Ranking weekend at Castle Semple, Scotland on the 5th and 6th of May.
