Last weekend was our annual Try Saiing Hospital Fundraiser and firstly I would like to thank everyone who gave a hand on the day because without everyones involvement it just wouldnt be such a fantastic and fun day . Mother nature wasnt at her best with overcast skies and the threat of increasing by the afternoon .
No sooner had we officially opened than people started arriving so boats we madly being rigged and launched including safety boats and the Jetski which didnt start at first but a quick diagnosis ( loose battery terminal ) by Charlie and myself and we soon had her up and running Lots of our sunday juniors turned up and were soon out sailing and occasionally capsizing Tom was out taking people for rides out the laser as was Greg who also had the 420 out cruising around the broadwater . Andrew was taking people for rides on Sarah Cooper which only arrived back on Friday after a week away getting repaired while also keeping an eye on the sailors . Casey and Charlie were busting a gut to get on the 420 and were soon out there flying around with Charlie steering and Casey on the trapeze , it didnt take long for them to get wet not from capsize but from spray as I may have accidentally sprayed them several times with the Jet ski !!! . Thanks to SYC we also had some stand up paddleboards and mine and Andrew s kyaks which proved a great hit with everyone especially all the kids n, I even saw some of our instructors out on the stand up boards well occasionally standing up . The Jetski as usual proved a great hit with all the kids and some adults lining up for a ride with me with over twenty five kids having a turn and only one nearly lost Junior Jade who fell off in a turn but not quite as I had hold of her foot so she could climb back on board . The jumping castle was also a great hit with sounds of laughter and some screaming coming from that area . When it came time to pack up it was hard work but everyone lent a hand washing and storing boats and paddle boards oh and kayaks . Once everyone had left Casey Charlie and I after sitting in the shade for 20 minutes ( absolutely exhausted ) we finally had enough energy to finish pack up and go home .
The Christmas Party is this Sunday at 11.00 am with a catered lunch and barbeque we already hjave around forty people booked and paid ( adult $15 Junior $10 and family group $40 ) so if want to come along and enjoy some christmas cheer just let us know and yes you can pay on the day. I nearly forgot that we will be operating 8.30 am Juniors but no 10.30 Training as we will be setting up for the Party.
