Every Wednesday night, come rain or shine, the bar is opened at the club at 8:00pm. But one wonders why we bother because hardly anybody turns up. It’s usually only the regulars, who have often been working at the club during the day anyway, that end up appreciating the unique position of our own little ‘pub’ by the river.

So, this summer why not pack up a BBQ and come and eat Al Fresco on the quarter deck; or grab a take-a-way and bring it to the club. Gentlemen, I’m sure your wife would appreciate a night off from cooking and the kids would love it. Also during the summer a number of us sail on a Wednesday afternoon and into the evening and then retire to the bar to put the world to rights. Why not come and join us?


Did I mention the bar prices? By commercial pub standards Aquarius prices are fantastic. Where else could you get a pint for less than £1.50, It’s a no-brainer, so this summer why not plan to occasionally come down to the club on a Wednesday evening and just enjoy its position and atmosphere. After all you help pay for it all so why not come and enjoy it.
