Normally we would be into the Tuesday evening series now. There is nothing quite like the dash from work, the hurried rigging, then forgetting the trials of daily life with an hour sailing with friends followed by a catch up in the club house. The perfect tonic.
K2O was scheduled to start at the weekend introducing the next generation to the enjoyment and benefits of sailing as a sport. Lets hope we can still get some training in this year. In the meantime here are the cheerful sails usually seen on Saturday mornings in the summer.

A big thank you to Newman University Security who informed us of further fly tipping earlier in the week. This time they got really good CCTV footage of the culprit who happened to be the same person as previously and will give the police much more to go on.

We are very grateful for the support from Newman University on this matter and the assistance they have given to the club and the Police and council.
Congratulations to Richard Baker for winning the Star class and 49er class and to Megan Hardiman for winning the Formula 18 class. The competition is getting better and better as the races progress so keep playing and it could be you at the top in series 3.
Speaking of which, series 3 starts on Wednesday at 18.30 and is Offshore Racers, J-70, and Nacra to keep things fresh. 20 races in the series with 50% to count. See you on the start line.
