Club Open Day

This weekend the club will be kicking things off for the season on Sunday 16 September with a club open day at Wynnum. The plan at the is to have a barbecue for all members from last year and this year around lunchtime and hopefully the Southeast Breeze kicks in and will be running rigging and gybing clinics and just some general tips . It would be great see how it is to sail Wynnum in a SE wind. We will also be able to show the GPS watches and the online community that you can join in. If you are sitting on the fence about joining the club then this is a great opportunity for you. So come along support your club and maybe learn something new and meet fellow Club members and have a sausage…
President Simon Fyfe

Agm Report

The Agm was held on Wednesday the 20-06-2018

Firstly I would like to thank all of the out going committee for their  input and work through the last season.

Looking at next season we are going to offer a few more styles of events and will be also trying to encourage people that have never tried slalom racing or been  part of the club to come along and join up .

  • On the opening day of the season in September we will be running an open day with some fun races and also for new sailors a bit of a  “HOW TO RACE” .
  • With the advent of foils we will also be offering low key fun foil racing if the winds are below 12 knots .
  • Later in the season we are going to run a long distance event in the bay so watch out for that.
  • Some of the more experienced members will also run some clinics before racing starts in the attempt to encourage new members to race.
