    That was the perfect weekend for all the Clubbies!  Beach on Saturday, Nippers en masse in the massive waves and the glorious sunshine.  Sunday rowing sees the girls and Khalil take the boat for a spin at Portreath and a play in the little waves.  The boys launched into pounding Porthtowan and had a blast!  Perfection!
