I wasn't there today for the sailing, but from reports to me, it was a good days sailing, with wind mostly in the B to C1 range.
Seven sailors competed today, with Les Hanson very kindly offering up his Vibe to Stuart Dawes for the day and taking over the PRO duties instead. Thanks for sacrificing your sail day to do this Les, it is very appreciated by all. Slowly but surely, Ray Joyce's Grunge is getting some competition, which is great for everyone, especially since we are planning a contingent to go to Yarrawonga for next year's Nationals.
Rod Marshall's Mantra 2 is improving each and every week, with Rod taking out two races, and having a lowest result of 3rd (not including the discards) showing extremely good consistency and pace. Not quite enough on the day though taking third spot by countback to Ray Joyce in second spot with four wins for the day - both on 20 points
Winner of the day today though, was Lisa Blackwood, with a borrowed Indie, four points ahead of Ray on 16 points.
From the bar talk after the day's sailing, it was a very enjoyable day.
Call for volunteers
Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th December is our RM State Championship Regatta. We are likely to have some sailors amongst us from the mainland this year, which is very encouraging news. We would like to hear from anyone who would like to help us with the various volunteer roles for that weekend. Pro, observer/s and rescue boat handler are amongst a number of volunteer roles we will need to fill. If you would like to help us out on this weekend, please contact John Hall or myself as soon as possible, so we can ensure all plans are set in place as soon as possible for that weekend.
Put it on the calendar
Sunday, 15th December is our last Sunday sailing for the year. We will be having a BBQ and presentation of awards on this day. Please lock the date in if you can for the presentations and BBQ, and we will provide more detail as it gets closer.
