Start of 2016 season
The new sailing season has finally started and the weather has been fairly good, providing nice winds and not much rain in these initial days.
Saturday the 2nd of April was Boat Preparation day with BBQ and a great sunny day to keep everyone in the right mood. Sunday the 3rd we had our first cruise to Davey's beach, in a bit of a drizzle but overall enjoyed by all.
Last weekend, 9th and 10th of April, was the first day of the safety boat course on Saturday. On Sunday we had a great time, with six boats heading for Lucky Scalp but then decided to push a bit further out, stopping just short of the Pools. Nice wind from the East all the way through which meant a nice run back to the club. Everyone seemed to enjoy the sail and the rain that was forecast did not come, which was great!
Last Tuesday was the first race of the season, results below. Some pictures from the past days are below the table.
Hope to see you back on the river soon and don't forget the German Themed Social Event on Saturday 23rd April!
