The dam provide light winds from midday on and some close racing was witnessed in both classes of racing.

Wayne Behrens has sold the pencil to Phil Turnbull and has now learn how to sail it although it won’t be long before he has sailing like the previous owner.
Our Commodore sailed in a few races but decided the leg still needs a bit more time to heal. It’s now been a week off 12 months since Dave had his accident, and speaking with many of the members of the club they believe that he has done a very good job this past year. He has been PRO nearly every Wednesday and also on the weekends even through the winter he sat in the cold so that another member could sail. He has certainly been a big help foe me on Wednesdays, Thank you Dave.
Dave was again the PRO today.
