Thank you to the volunteers ( Pieter Verstoep , Aidan Verstoep and John Musgrave) for all their help, especially to John Mus for all the swimming he did on the day resulting from capsizing and jumping in the water to help right boats.
Sunday started out with over 25 kids turning up for sailing in the morning with brilliant sunshine and light winds prevailing all morning. Again a special thanks to the volunteers on the morning, Allan and George Morton, and all the parents for pitching in with unloading boats and rigging.
Then, with help from the rescue boats righting their boats and heading for the nearest bit of shore where they all derigged and waited to be towed home. All but James Brown who was determined to sail back which he did including capsizes .
Hopefully he is well and back at home.
Lastly, the Open Bic Regatta is a definite for the last week in June with Bendigo Bank supporting the Club and hopefully Gold Coast City Council who we have a meeting with next week to discuss their involvement.
