Still a good turnout with 11 boats on the water 9 of them racing.

Just a quick reminder to sailors that the summer series of races starts tomorrow ( Sunday).
Just enough wind for racing this evening, a good turn out with 12 or more boats on the water.
We have added additional instructions for race officers when winds are light or expected to decrease (especially Wednesday evenings).
Sailors racing also please take note.

A great day for both DSC and SYCSA.
It was a big success with around 200 people attending and over 80 people going for a taster sail, some more than once.
There was a good breeze at times which added to the excitement for our guests.
We had 3 new members join on the day and also sold one of our club boats.
Many thanks to all those who helped, it was an enjoyable day for everyone.

With a variable mainly westerly wind 7 boats racing today and a few recreational sailors.
10 boats racing today in fairly light wind with a few gusts coming from east to west.
A few recreational sailors and some new members which is always good to see.
Thanks to Joy and Richard for the pictures, many more, if you want to see them email me.
With a tricky southeasterly wind blowing over the dam and rain forecast only 4 boats racing this morning and no second race.
Despite capsizing twice Dan & Andy got 1st place in their RS200 well done!!
