First Sail of the Season...
Published 13:04 on 18 Mar 2018
What a difference a few hours makes. Less than 48hrs ago the Club was basking in Spring sunshine and now the winter bite returns, just in time for the first sailing of the 2018 season.
Today was schedule for the first racing of the season, the Tune-up Series of PY Handicap races to warm experienced and novice sailors up before the Easter trophy and the first Social Sail (& BBQ) of the season a week later. Unfortunately, with water temperatures down to a couple of degrees, biting Easterly winds and occasional blizzard conditions, racing was cancelled for the day - but not until a few hardy souls had arrived to check-out conditions for themselves!
The 2018 season is now launched, though, with details available from the Club Calendar, and offers something for sailors of all age, exprience and inclination. Key dates for your diaries over the next 2-3 weeks include
- Tune-up Series Racing - Sundays from 10:30am
- Easter Egg Hunt & Easter Trophy - 1st April
- Powerboat Familiarisation briefing - 7th April (AM)
- Social Sail & BBQ - 7th April (PM)
- Progressive Skills clinic - 7th April (PM)
