Sam Knight and Chris Bownes win the Steve Nicholson Trophy 2019

Sam and Chris extend their lead

Congratualtions Sam and Chris for a fantastic win over a fleet of 35 double handers contesting the Steve Nicholson Trophy at Northampton SC. 

Steve Ward and Mark Rolfe achieved a creditable 20th in the challenging conditions. Mark says he has a new respect for GP14s given how exhausted he was at the end of the day!

Steve and Mark bear away

2019 RYA Powerboat level 2 and RYA Safety Boat Courses

Fantastic offer for all club members - RYA Powerboat level 2 and RYA Safety Boat courses at a MUCH reduced price. If you don't already have this qualification BOOK YOUR PLACE NOW!!!!

Powerboat Training 2019

It is essential that we have as many members as possible who have the skill and experience to drive the club rescue boats safely.

It is a requirement placed on us that all safety boat drivers have L2 powerboat qualification. We are proving this training "in house", so that members can gain this qualification without the cost of a commercial course, or attending another centre.

The course costs just £30 to members (usual cost using an external provider is about £200) to cover club costs and is run over two days.

To book your space, please contact Dave Jones via or phone:  07887406585

Dates for 2019 training are as follows:

March   9 & 10      L2 PB

Gala Evening Played its Cards right!

Thanks to all who supported the fantastic gala night on Friday and to John, Jennifer, Marie, and all at Tilly's Galley for organising it.

Everyone who attended had a great time with a very close game of 'Play your Cards right', the 'Bosuns Challenge' and a raffle with some top prizes.

Here are just a few of the many photos of the evening:
