DALE MORRIS MEMORIAL TROPHY
All two-handed sailors (under 16) are welcome to participate in the Dale Morris Perpetual Trophy. Traditionally starting at Stoney Cove, one sailor swims to the boat at Goosey. Both sail to the first mark and perform a ‘man overboard’, then sail to the second mark and perform a capsize. First boat across the finish line wins!
HARRIS ‘PARENT AND CHILD’ TROPHY
Optimist sailors grab your parents for the Parent and Child Race! Starting at the slip, parents sail the Optimist round a named mark and back to the slip before handing over to their partner. The child will sail the same course with the winning boat first to finish at the slip.
We’re really delighted to have our new members at WHSC. If you’re a new member, or an existing member still ‘learning the ropes’, then we’d like to cordially invite you and family to a new members welcome meeting at 1pm this Saturday July 18th in the WHSC club house.
The meeting will give you an overview of the club, its facilities and how it works. Provide some details on club safety and meet with the Commodore and some committee members. It’s also an opportunity to ask any questions and have a social introduction to other new members.
We very much hope you can attend.
