Blowing a hooley, time for Arun Yacht Club Dingy Sailors to take to the water.

A Sunday treat – Littlehampton’s Arun Yacht Club Dingy Sailors take to the water to show off their impressive sailing skills. Close quarter dingy sailing in Littlehampton’s Harbour in a force 4/5 provides both exhilarating sailing for those participating as well as compulsive viewing for those of us ashore.

Aptly named – today’s event (Sunday, 2nd March 2014) is part of the club’s Frostbite Blast Series – you had to be watching to appreciate how cold it was…
