Almost 150 supporters of sailing in the National Yacht Club got together on Saturday 30th September to mark the 50th Jubilee anniversary of NYC Junior section. Open to over 18s who have been involved in NYC’s junior section over the years as sailors, parents, friends and instructors, the evening reunited three generations to celebrate junior sailing at NYC. The evening was also an opportunity to raise funds for a fleet of Fireflies that will benefit NYC’s current young and upcoming sailors.
