Grafham Water Sailing Club: 50-Years Young

This summer, on July 2nd, we’re celebrating the club’s golden anniversary. Planned events include a 9-hour race, details of which (and other likely festivities) will be announced shortly. Meanwhile, we’re compiling a photo album to reflect some of the more memorable happenings over the past 50 years. To kick-start this process, we’ve tracked down a promotional video, published by Anglian Water in 1991.

Grafham Water – the beginning….

If you hold material (text or photographs) of relevance to the development and life of the club – particularly during its early years – and are prepared to make this available, please bring it in to the office: we’ll arrange to copy it and scan it to help grow the digital record. We’d also be grateful for (publishable!) accounts of your own recollections of sailing and racing at Grafham.

Watch the story unfold as your accounts roll in!
