Sailing / Yacht Club
St Mary's Junior Sailing Club was first formed in the mid 1960s's on its present site by Peter Camp and Mervyn Dyer at the request of the then rector William Rees. It took over the premises which had been occupied by "The Viking's Club" which had by then closed down. It started by using the existing boats - pram dinghies and Cadets. Later Mirror dinghies were introduced and the original one, which was purchased using Green Shield Stamps, is still being used by the children after restoration. The club closed at the end of 1999 due to the retirement of the remaining founder member. Following an advert put in the Parish magazine at the beginning of 2001 a group of adults met down the club. As the huts were first prised open, broken wooden dinghies lay on their sides, rotting rope and rusted wires hung in tangles from split masts. The boatsheds themselves were falling apart and the path crumbling, things did not look promising. Just a few months later with a lot of hard work in the background and a brand new boat, paid for by a lottery grant, plus bags of optimism, the club was keen and determined to get back up and running.
