Waterford Harbour Sailing Club Fitting Out Dinner 2013
May 16th, 2013 By rmarchant
Get your season off to a flying start with this year’s fitting out dinner to be held at the club on Saturday the 8th of June.
Tickets can be purchased individually at the bar for only €25. It’s a great way to meet up and get to know other members. Alternatively, organise eight of your family & friends to share a table.
Enjoy a choice of starter, main & desert prepared by our experienced chef. Our new Commodore will say a few words and we wish to acknowledge the triumph of our WHSC boats in Kinsale this April.
View our extensive trophy collection in the new display cabinet. There will be a photographer on hand to capture the event.
We need to raise some of the €1000 needed for a windless for our committee boat. The new windless will advance the standard of racing at W.H.S.C. even further.
We’ll round off the evening with some live music at the bar. So buy your tickets soon and help make this a successful event for your club. See you there.
