TCBYC’s next event will be the Flying Fifteen State Titles to be held this month

The sailing season started with a shake down sail or rather sails with short sprint races. Race Officer Bob and his crew kept the fleet on their toes and with them in toe straps with 9 successive races and just 3 minutes starting (usually 5 minutes).

The fleet, now armed and eager to set off for the first races of the season, was, not for the first time this year, thwarted in its Sunday sailing by Mother Nature who threw in 25 knots and more of wind from the south-east. At least dads could enjoy a relaxing Father’s Day instead of battling the elements.

On the following race day, Mother Nature was very kind and the fleet enjoyed a beautiful sunny day with around 10 knots of northeast wind. Perfect!

The next event at the Yacht Club will be the Flying Fifteen State Titles in October, so let’s hope for good weather.

The cruise fleet enjoyed an August trip to Watumba and all points in between. Another cruise is scheduled for October.

Everyone is welcome to come and try their hand at sailing on Wednesday afternoons and Saturdays weather and tide permitting. Please contact Russell 0405 063 894 or Kay 0447 631 479.
