First Sundowner of 2019


Erith Yacht Club held its first Sundowner of 2019 on Friday 12th of April. We do this every Friday evening in summer when the tides are right. Sailors get out on the water from around 6pm until sunset, then head to the clubhouse for a barbeque or some other type of food, and some drinks. The bar is open all evening for people who don't want to sail, and there are usually plenty of people on hand to welcome visitors and new members.

Here's what happened:

The weather was overcast and blowing force 2-3 on the Beaufort scale and the turnout was impressive given the limited daylight. Members either rigged and launched dinghies, or motored or rowed out to their yachts. While the Erith sailors were out doing their favourite activity, a 3 masted tall ship passed through. After an hour or so, they returned to the clubhouse for warm food and cold beverages. We are extremely grateful to Sara and her crew for making the food, Mary for serving drinks, and to the safety boat crew for being on hand in case anyone needed rescue.
