Over 60 Baltic members gathered at St Katherine’s Dock on Thursday 27 July, as the Sailing Association welcomed the young crew of the Moonspray who are circumnavigating the British Isles with the Elen MacArthur Cancer Trust. Baltic sailors and non-sailors mingled with volunteers at after-work drinks and £670 was raised for this excellent cause. In the autumn another social event will launch the BESA 2018 Calendar.
Closer on the horizon, the weekend of 23 September sees the Baltic sailing teams entering a battle against Lloyd’s of London and the London Stock Exchange in the annual Finn Trophy. A social program will also be available from Friday night through to the formal post-race dinner on Saturday and a relaxed non-competitive sail on the Sunday morning – for which no sailing knowledge will be required!
