White Rose Sailing Association, which sails on the river Ure near Ripon, celebrated 60 years of sailing at their Regatta weekend with two days of exciting sailing and celebrations. Past members were invited to join in the festivities, which included an -all ages rounders match and Tug of War. Later, members retired to their tents for a pleasant summer’s night. The club sails from March to October on a Sunday on the River Ure near Newby Hall. The group are currently awaiting the handover of a newly landscaped lake alongside the site, which will allow exciting sailing and hopefully a larger club in the future.

Anyone who would like to get into sailing or renew a past love of the sport is welcome to pay a visit on the club’s sailing days. Contact 01423 509302 or 07875 750113.
