Try Sailing Day 2015
After a wild week of winds it turned out a reasonable day on Sunday, with winds from the S/E around 10 knots it was near perfect conditions for new people to come down and help us support the hospital while having a go at sailing .

It was great to see many of our Sunday Junior sailors bring their friends down and take them for a sale and by the look of it everyone had a great deal of fun . There were even powerboat and Jetski rides so there was plenty of activity on the water .
Yes, they did rig the 14 skiff, but it spent most of its sailing time on its side ? Tianna and I had a bet that they would either capsize it on the shore or within ten metres of the shore, and I won, yep ten metres and they were over for number one of many .

I have to say in their defence, she did have a major leak inside the cockpit, but then again if they hadn't capsized it 10 metres from the shore she wouldn't have gotten water in her.
Will brought the A class cat down which proved very popular with everyone wanting a ride, even my Grandaughter had a go !
Sailing Camps : We have two camps running before Xmas and they are on the 14th / 15th Dec and the 21st / 22nd Dec. Booking is essential.
Club Racing : Racing starts again in early February and I will post the calendar on the website as soon as I finalize a couple of dates .
CU at Juniors or Sunday
