Last Night of the Proms

The Last Night of the Proms at 7.30pm on Saturday 14 September.   The evening includes an excellent British two course meal, table entertainment, then it’s over to The Royal Albert Hall at 9.00pm on the big screen (even bigger than before) for much singing and waving of flags.

Optimists Nationals

Last week two junior Weir wood sailors went to the Optimist Nationals at Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy. It was a fun week with some challenging conditions but an amazing place to sail and a rewarding experience for both of them. Few other opportunities are there to sail with 350 boats of the same class! They both took part in the Regatta Coached fleet with Tom Garrood finishing 14 out of 52 and was awarded the Sportsmanship Cup. Congratulations to Tom. For other budding Optimist sailors the Nationals is definitely an event to consider in the future.
