Question time

Filed under: News

” Borrowing” must stop

Hi All,

The committee are constantly getting remarks that items are missing of the boats in the boatshed.

For all members this is not the way it should be in a club.

Items that are borrowed are bungs , blocks , preddles , bailers etc. These items are used by fellow sailors no doubt.

Let us respect other’s property and a special appeal to parents please teach your child to look after his or her boat.

Then there will be no need to borrow loose parts from another boat in the next parking lot !

With thanks

WHSC Fun Day

WHSC FUN DAY Aug 4th 2018


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!


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!

Please Note: No club boat rentals available for these race
