Last Day of Sailing for September Series Great Success

Saturday 30th of September saw the last of the September series sailing.

14 Oppies on the water and for some of them, this was the first solo sail after sailing the Oppies initially double handed.

The idea of the series was to extend the season and to give our young sailors more time on the water. With the assistance of Dave Marsden, Andrea Quinlan and Barry McConnell as rescue coordinator

it was a safe event. Many parents assisted on the water and on the shore which made it a real family sailing morning.

There was an Optimist September series Trophy to be sailed as well and honours for this trophy went to Julia McConnell

Our congratulations to Julia and to the parents our thanks for all their help !

Outdoor Dinghy Parking – Reminder: Time to Remove

For those with dinghies in the outdoor parking. We would like to remind you that boats must be removed by this Saturday.

We hope you understand that the outdoor dinghy parking is a leased area, if we abuse the lease we risk loosing our lease rights for next year (others parties have expressed an interest in obtaining the lease on this area). The club lease runs strictly from April 1st – September 30th each year. It would be a great shame if the club lost access to this convenient location.

We thank you for your kind co-operation and understanding in this matter.
