I must thank everyone who came along and helped either on the beach on the boats in the canteen and on Public Nuisance as volunteering is the life blood of clubs like ours .
All our usual juniors either sailed together our with new friends made on the day and despite the odd tow from down south including me when the wind just died out great fun was had by all . Tom had 6 budding sailors on at one stage and would you believe it the boat capsized and everyone fell off! I had one of the mums with me on the jetski and she at first panicked to see her boys in the water because they didn't want to sail on the beach but once she saw them laughing with the other kids she started laughing as well . good work Tom !
Andrew took groups out in Public Nuisance which after some engine surgery was flying around under motor even creating a bow wave . After much pestering by all the kids I finally relented and took kids out for some fun on the jetski which I'm sure all the kids enjoyed even Abby who was gripping me some tight I think she bruised a couple of ribs just kidding Abbs!.
We had some hospital staff and their families there as well who set up their marquee with the help of our expert marquee setter upper Charlie ? well at least that's how he described himself ? and Sabrina from the hospital said all her people had a great day and were truly amazed on what we set up in aid of their fundraising efforts for the Hospital.
On the day we raised nearly $600.00 which goes to the Gold Coast University Hospitals equipment wish list so well done to everyone involved.
