Opening Day 2022-23
From our Commodore
Off The Beach News
I'm sure that the opening festivities will be covered in detail elsewhere in the Enews, so I'm not going to say too much about it, except to remark on the quality of the food and the briefness of the speeches. Great work Tony on your first Opening as Commodore and to everyone else who had a hand in making it such a great day.
This week is round one of the Red Dolphin series, so dust off your boats and yourselves and get your bums on the water. It doesn't get any better than this!

What's On In October
A great weekend of sailing and socialising to kick off the season. The nasty weather cleared in time for the first Friday twilight and 12 boats took to the water. Congratulations to Peter Morrison and crew ‘Fransiska’ on their win. Another four boats finished before the 7.30pm sunset, however the wind dropped out towards the end and the rest (having rounded the yellow pile) were DNF’s – so close! Thanks to duty boat Vamonos, Amanda and Elaine in the tower.
Sunday’s fleet were out on the water early with their flags flying high. Thanks again to Peter Hollins for hosting a nice party onboard the Commodore’s yacht ‘Corinthian’ for the sail past. And also thanks to Elaine and Judy in the tower and Geoff, Deirdre and Chipper on the start boat for a successful race. Results for the Commodore’s Cup were Div. 1: Vincitore and Div. 2: Fransiska (with one POB I believe!)
See full results for the weekend.
