Hello to you all

Last weekend saw a number of our sailors join the keelers to sail in Algoa week. They seemed to have fun and learnt all about big boat sailing. In fleet 1 line honours and 1st on handicap was Nemesis skippered by Tony x Sigi Bailes with Andrew Martin on board. The Arnolds were on their boat Adamo skippered by Steve and included Debbie, Sarah, also Colin Benadie and Sophie Hynch. On board Malgas was William Fraser and on Wild Thing was Justin Harth and Cameron Martin. A good selection of our senior and junior sailors.

After a recalculation of the overall results for ABYC Interclub held the weekend before it was confirmed that RYC won overall ( this is the addition of Senior and Junior fleets) Yeh, Yeh !!!

This Saturday sees us return to the river for the last sailing of the current season to sail races 3 x 4 of the NSRI/ Frostbite series. The first race will not be before 14-30.

After the racing it will be time to party when we will be having the build a burger evening with craft beer, this is the only fund raiser for our Junior Team who will be taking part in the J22 Interclub Youth Nationals in June at TYC. The burgers will be R25-00 and with a craft beer it will be R55-00 so please all of you come and support your club and the juniors that will represent it. There will also be a raffle with some great prizes of nights at the City Lodge and also breakfasts at a mere R10-00 a ticket that is great value, so bring lots of money with you.

On Saturday morning the Blue Water Bay Canoe Club will be holding time trials but they will be off the water before we start sailing, this is just a friendly note in case you arrive and think you are at the wrong club.

Rhona has Thule Roof Racks for sale if anybody is interested and they will be at the club on Saturday for viewing.

Well that’s it for now folks, see you all on the river on Saturday ( it looks like a great day for sailing) and afterwards at the party J
