Member Night 19th March 2020rs

From the OTB Captain and Rear

After a month of no OTB sailing on Sundays the weather gods blessed us with sunshine and a northerly wind gusting to about 15 knots. This provided ideal conditions to take on the visiting fleet from Mt Martha Yacht Club.  With around 50 boats racing, the yard was a hive of activity before and after the race and there was plenty of traffic on the water.

Division 2 was closely contested with SBSC winning the first race by 1 point and Mt. Martha winning the second race by 1 point.  The Martin's placed 1st & 2nd  in their Tasers for both races in Div. 3 giving SBSC a 2 point victory in each race.  Div. 5 had Ewan and Tori in the B14 get a 1st and 2nd as did Mike from Mt Martha in his Paper Tiger.  With the rest of the SBSC fleet having the numbers it is congratulations to Safety Beach SC on a great WIN against Mount Martha YC and we look forward to seeing the trophy in our new trophy cabinet soon!

Thanks to RO Peter Bulka and team for a great day on the water and also to Mt Martha Yacht Club for their great turn-out and close competition.

OTB News

This Sunday, the 1st March, we not only have 2 Club Championship Races on but we also have the Mt Martha YC visit to Safety Beach Sailing Club.  We need every OTB boat out on the water this Sunday in a bid to wrangle the trophy back from Mt Martha.  Please note the change in start time with the first warning signal at 12:57H so don't be late.

How good was Sail Peninsula 2020

Great Sailing, Awesome Food & Entertainment and a heap of fun was had by all that were involved either on or off the water

Finally we were blessed with some lovely sailing conditions and managed to get in all three races.  Thank you to our many SBSC boats and crews that support this regatta every year.  Without you the regatta wouldn't exist.  We had great representation from Sandringham YC, Mornington YC, Blairgowrie YS and the Multihull Association who definitely provide the most entertainment on the water.  It was also very pleasing to receive entries from Hobsons Bay, Royal Geelong and Martha Cove . 

Again our friends from Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron joined us for the festivities on the Saturday night and as we all know they are renowned for enjoying a good party!.   Big thanks to Snooks Catering who just make this event better and better each year.  The food and entertainment was amazing and can't wait to see what they come up with next year.  To our SP2020 Organising Committee - what a team!!!!  You should all feel incredibly proud of putting together, what I think was, the best Sail Peninsula Regatta to date showcasing just what a great club Safety Beach Sailing Club is.  We also must thank our Race Officials Geoff Eldridge Lou Hutton and Geoff Searle and all our volunteers who worked tirelessly not just over the weekend but the whole week leading up to the event.

The amazing Chris Parks and his team of photographers and drone pilots have captured some fantastic images and footage of this years event.  We were lucky to see some of the shots on the big screen over the weekend however, I believe all the shots taken will soon be made available so keep watching this space!
