Sunday Juniors 8.30 am ;
With drizzling rain and very little wind it was a very slow start but we did manage to entice 5 sailors to have a go . The wind was around 3/6 knots S/E so it was perfect for our junior sailors but definitely not a day for falling out as it was cold in the water . Addy had the open bic to herself and with my help holding the boat she practiced her gybes which I realised is really easy in the bic as you just hold the main sheet and the back handle while they gybe . Addy eventually went out on the course and followed casey around in the laser . One draw back I had to stand up to my waist in the water . I should also mention Hado who sailed well all session how do I know ? because I didnt have to say a word to him for the whole session well done HADO !
SUNDAYJUNIORS 10.30 AM;
With only one sailor turning up being Declan he had the distinction of having a one on one lesson with me in what turned out to be very difficult conditions as the wind kept changing direction and alternating between 1/5 knots . I have to say that after a few laps with me telling him what to pull on let off and how to read the telltales he then did several laps of the course with me just standing back and watching and did very well .
Open Racing ;
With the winds dying even more the guys decided to cancel the afternoon race as not only was the wind dying but the outgoing tide was increasing so it would have just been a towing fest . There,s always next week !
Public Nuisance ;
Is now in Port Macquarie with myself and two other sailors going down on Monday to bring her further north . Thanks to Andrew , Peter Parry , Roger Margot and Paul crick lyon for their efforts at getting her there with lots of rain and at times very little wind .
Bendigo Bank Youth Cup ;
Yes its getting closer so if you are thinking of entering come to the office on Sunday and complete an entry form
With the ever increasing sand bar in front of the club I have applied top council to have the area dredged as its from the council stormwater drain which pumped masses of sand out during the recent cyclone so lets hope they have it done soon as even Sarah Cooper is running aground .
CU ALL on the water
