DALE MORRIS MEMORIAL TROPHY
All two-handed sailors (under 16) are welcome to participate in the Dale Morris Perpetual Trophy. 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 (on handicap) 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 oppi round the 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.
Sign Up on the notice board for both races if interested!P
150 school children from 5 local schools took the opportunity to sail in WHSC on our “Schools Sailing” program. This was possible due a massive contribution from The WHSC Apprentices (eat your heart out LordSugar}
Recruited but never press-ganged from our Optimist and Topper fleets, they -no complaints- were present at the club each morning at 9am on school holidays ! We can learn a lot from their example and the future of the club is bright indeed!
The 2019 Apprentices: Eoin Bailey, Max Passberger, David Kelliher, Eoin O’Gradaigh, Laura Bolton, Joe Landers, Sinead O’Reilly, Meabh O’Gradaigh, Cian O’Reilly, Isabelle Passberger, Grace Kelliher and Matthew Quinlan.
