WHSC FUN DAY This Saturday!


Coffee and Cake Sale


A presentation of Certificates to our youngest 5-8 year olds


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!P
