What's On @ SBSC in August
On Water News
Please make note of the dates for the Man Over Board Training Presentations being held at the club (see flyer below). These are both being presented by Simon Dryden who is head trainer for the ORCV. Even if you have already undertaken a safety course or previously experienced a man overboard rescue, this is a great opportunity to refresh your knowledge or learn something new. Please encourage your crew members to attend – after all, rescue is a team effort!

Latest Update from Balance
It does feel like half of Safety Beach is up here. We have hopped our way up the coast doing a lot of exploring. Found some good, bad and terrible anchorages and so far have managed to dodge the bad weather.
We have hung with the Churcher’s, Drummond’s, Wellingtons, Trevor ? off Intuition (Motor Boat), Jason Close, McGrath’s, Furey’s, Michel Van der Zwaard, Rob Rainsford, Linda Wooley and the list goes on plus every other person looking to live the dream with a story to tell. Can we relocate honey? No! Family and School! Bugger!
We wish Mark and his crew all the best for Hamilton Island Race Week which gets underway on the 20th August.
News from Summer Lovin
We have spent a few days on lovely Maggie Island. On the way we had a whale and her calf about 50m from our boat. Beautiful but a bit close for comfort. Anchored in Horseshoe Bay with lovely sunsets and Safety Beach sailors then a couple of nights in Maggie marina to collect Jen and Jeff from Tumi who have flown up to island hop with us to Cairns. Left this morning with the iron sail but beautiful day ahead.
