2018 marked the 100-year anniversary of sailing at Upper Bittell reservoir and the establishment of our club.

To commemorate this exciting and important anniversary, a small group of members, lead by Richard Chisnall organised a range of activities to celebrate.

  • We designed a club centenary logo, shown above, which we will be using throughout the year
  • We commissioned a range of clothing featuring the new centenary logo. Ordering details can be found by clicking here on the "Clothing" link at the right
  • We held a number of events, both on and off the water, throughout the year.
