Paxton Lakes Sailing Club will be hosting our 46th annual 24 hour race this coming July in aid of the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust. If you would like to take part please get in touch and we will find a team for you. You don’t need to be an experienced sailor but should be 8 years or more young. There will be special teams for those under 18.
Food and drinks will be available throughout the weekend and we are planning a barbecue or fish and chip supper on Saturday evening.
If you don’t want to get your feet wet we will still be pleased to see you just as a spectator but helpers always are needed. If you can spare an hour or two please let us know.

I’m a relative newcomer to Cambridgeshire, having spent my formative years in South London. The only lake there was a reservoir originally built to supply the Croydon Canal in the 1820s. It was here that I was introduced to a Heron dinghy, built in the school wood-working class by a keen teacher. Whilst inspired by the boat sailing majestically around the lake; I was less enthusiastic when the principles of aerodynamics were expounded! I wanted to sail; not to have yet another school lesson!
I never did learn to sail and once retired thought I must have a go!
For me, whether it’s just cruising around the lake watching the trees change colour or starting a race last & maintaining that position throughout. It’s just great fun!
