Today an informal regatta to ‘find your sea legs’, and get your boats dusted off and running smoothly again after the winter. A programme of regular races (two per boat), probably with a point to point (when you have to try and sail in-between flags at the other end of the pond) – all entries are taken at the pond on the day, but please arrive at least 30 minutes in advance.

There are no club membership requirements to sail in SMYR. Sailors of any age and ability are most welcome to join in any regatta, although the ‘Cups’ Regatta is by and large aimed at adults with a bit more of a competitive edge…! Next Regatta takes place 29th July.

Cinema @ The Cut - MOONLIGHT (15)

Venue: The Cut Arts Centre, Halesworth IP19 8BY link
Director Barry Jenkins, 2016, USA, 111 mins with Mahershala Ali, Naomie Harris, Janelle Monae, Trevante Rhodes.
Most critics had already awarded this film 5 stars before it went on to win the Oscar for best picture. The story of Chiron is told in three stages through his childhood, adolescence and manhood. As a black American he will meet prejudice but as a gay man the pressures are overwhelming. It’s beautifully told with sensitivity and insight and makes full use of a luscious musical score.
Ticket Details: Admission at door £5, Cinema Member £4

Southwold Summer Theatre - MURDER WEAPON by Brian Clemens

Organised by: Southwold Summer Theatre
Venue: St. Edmund's Hall, Cumberland Road, Southwold IP18 6JP link
Murder and mystery from the creator of “The Avengers”. Chief Constable Jessica Bligh returns to the home of her best friend, Diane, after a night out to find herself the key eye-witness of a murder. According to the cynical Inspector Fremont, the case is cut and dried but Jessica is not so sure. Yes, the prime suspect was standing over the body of Diane’s husband with the proverbial smoking gun in his hand, but it doesn’t feel right. Less of a whodunit than a how and why, Fremont’s case rapidly unravels until no one is sure who the murderer is, nor what exactly is the identity of the murder weapon itself.
Performances 17th-29th July (not Sunday).
Ticket Details: £14.00 / £15.00 / £16.00 / £17.50 / £18.00 - Box Office at St.Edmunds Hall open Mon-Fri noon-4pm
