I hope you all had a great Easter . There was no Juniors and no Racing last weekend and by the look of the traffic on the Broadwater it was safer to not be out there .
Perth has just held its Open Bic State Champoinships which resulted in three of our Junior sailors grabbing top twenty results:
George Morton 9th overall and 6th in his age group
Sybren Tepstra 10th in age group
Katy Denney 14th in age group
Congratulations to all three and a special thanks to their parents for supporting them in their efforts at gaining the experience at competing at the top levels. Once they arrive home I will post more information in regards to competition numbers and racing conditions they experienced.
Finally last week Sailability actually conducted their first on water activities since setting up with us temporarily. With sunny skies and moderate winds, some sand bars were found but with the help of the dredge we hope to lessen their effect. The President Bryce Wilson informed me that they had 77 clients on the day and despite a few kinks they were very happy with their first day.
There is a rescue boat training day next Sunday, April 7th, starting at 1.30 pm and involves boat familiarity and basic rescue techniques. This is being conducted in house and it is hoped that by doing this hands-on-session more people would be able to jump in and help when needed. If you want to come along just give me a ring before the weekend (0407 145 397).
