The club reopened on 15th April. The opening day race was sailed in somewhat gusty conditions for the President's Plate. Despite an early capsize before the race began, Calum Robertson (Streaker) took the honours.

The race was followed by a buffet to mark the start of the club's 50th anniversary year. The buffet was opened by Nigel Orr as current Commodore and John Cooper as the very first Commodore in 1968.
