One of OCSG's favourite venues has been recognised nationally with an award. We made a donation to their rebuilding cause last year in appreciation of the great hospitality they have shown us over the years. Here's the news item from their website:

In February's Yachts & Yachting magazine it was announced that Ullswater Yacht Club has been awarded Club of the Year 2010. 

The citation read "UYC suffered severe flooding in November 2009 causing massive damage to the clubhouse. Despite this, members were determined it would be business as usual using temporary cabins whilst major repairs were carried out. Members pulled together and managed to host major events including the famous Lord Birkett Trophy. They finally celebrated moving back into their clubhouse in September 2010." 

UYC beat stiff competition for the award, with the joint runners up being Grafham Water SC and Hayling Island SC.
