Hello Everybody
Firstly an update on the Knysna regatta kindly sent to me by various members! Would like to congratulate Steve du Toit and Sarah Arnold on coming first in the senior class yah ( and if you are wondering Steve sailed for Redhouse) good result for a Sonnet beating Fireballs etc and Redhouse came third in the Interclub Senior event.
On a lovely Sunday last week we sailed Autumn series 1 & 2 with a morning start we had a good turnout and great to see some sailors out for the first time this year including Ralph on his Finn that seems to be more riverworthy than his Enterprise, a braai was held after enjoyed by all who stayed.
On to this weekend it is the big long one. The Bailey Southwell on Saturday which is to the bridge and back and Island Cup on Sunday which is also to the bridge with a few bouys included before we are allowed to head for home. The start is 15-00 for both days and they are pursuit races. So please all sailors come and sail these two great races, hopefully the Sunday weather will go else where.
Please make sure you remember the dates 15 & 16 March 2014 which is the Eastern Cape Interschools hosted by Redhouse so please all come and support and help where you can, more hands make light work. Of course we expect to see all our own scholar members and friends they have conned into sailing for their schools.If you haven’t let Michelle know that you might sponsor in the brochure please let her know now as time is running out
All for now, see you on the water this weekend.
