WEYMOUTH Sailing Club’s festivities have been full on as the season draws to a close, with members enjoying a series of lively events.

The daytime Christmas luncheon was well attended by members and guests.

All enjoyed a two-course meal as well as mince pies, coffee, chocolates and even a present from Father Christmas.

There was a new twist to the Christmas party this year, with gentlemen sporting Christmas jumpers instead of black tie and ladies wearing sparkly outfits.

After the food there was a competition for the most glamorous outfits, followed by some boisterous games.

Walking the plank, space hopper racing (which witnessed one member bounce spectacularly into the Christmas tree) and finally a game which included buckets, knees and brazil nuts.

Daniel Newnam won the raffle prize of a beautiful hamper, with the raffle proceeds donated to Chesil Sailability and Cancer Research.

The evening ended with dancing to hits from the past three decades.

Nearly 100 members joined commodore Euan McNair for his Christmas punch party.

The photograph competition attracted 24 entries.

Gary Owens took the winning picture using a camera attached to the top of his mast.

The photo was of a near miss between Gary’s boat and Rick Bruton’s boat ‘Passion’.

It will appear on the front cover of the WSC Handbook 2018.

Second place was a photo of three Squibs taken by Steve Dadd.

The photo will grace the front cover of the dinner and dance prizegiving booklet.

At the 'Strictly Evening', decorations that included a glitter ball were much in evidence and enjoyed by everyone who attended to watch the final.

Dancing fans enjoyed a mezze platter so they could eat without missing the ballroom action.

Social secretary Jane Buckle said: “We’ve had a really busy time running up to Christmas but it’s been great fun.

"My thanks go out to those in the social subcommittee as well as all the other members who’ve helped make the season such a success.”
