With conditions perfect with blue skies and light s/e winds and with a group of sixteen sailors on the water it was perfect for even the newbies to have a go at steering . As usual a special thanks goes to our experienced juniors who went out and helped the new up and coming sailors to learn the skills of sailing .
With a good roll up we sent the fleet out the front to practice triangles especially upwind sailing which everyone knows is initially difficult to master . With both safety boats out there giving instruction everyone started to get the idea of how it was done especially with the help of Dallas who was helping Cody in his first sail in a Bic .
Open Bic Racing
The race took just over 1 hr with Will first, Greg 50 seconds behind and Andrew third . Both Casey and Michael sailed their 4.7s in the Adult section and even though Michael got away at first Casey clawed her way back to finish 45 seconds behind Michael .
Following the try sailing we will be having the annual Christmas Party with a Barbeque and munchies for everyone . If you are coming along just bring a plate with food for the table .
