Junior Fleet Update
Due to the ongoing COVID situation, we are working on our season to be in-line with both the Victorian State Government and Australian sailing Guidelines.
In the interest of safety for the juniors, volunteers and other club members, the start of Junior 2020/21 sailing will be slightly delayed in order to develop an appropriate plan, going forward. We appreciate that like most, our Juniors are very keen to get back out on the water, doing what they enjoy doing best.
We are hopeful to be able to provide an update shortly on how the Junior season will proceed.
Notifications will be sent out via the Club E-News, alongside the website and any additional avenues to make sure everyone is informed.
Thank you to everyone for their patience and understanding at this incredibly unpredictable time.
We cant wait to see everyone again as well as get back out on the water!
Natasha Martin, Ciaran Snooks & Grace Lazzar
Junior Squad Committee
Well, after a nice little sail the previous Sunday, this week proved that sometimes the weather bureau can get it right ! With light winds in the morning but a gale warning posted with wind speeds expected to be 30 knots plus by 2 o’clock, some of the juniors ventured out for a social sail early with great success. Then some of the more adventurous adults went for a squirt, including Paul Fleming for two and a half hours in his newly acquired moth!
Meanwhile the rest of us hopefuls waited on the beach expecting it to drop out a bit - but oh no, right on 2 o’clock that big front came through just as predicted, justifying our wise and sensible Race Officer Geoff calling it off at 1.30. Ah well , there’s always next week !
