Hi all members,
By now I am sure you will have read the email from our Commodore, Peter Bulka, advising that ALL club activities have been suspended until further advised. We will keep all members informed of the latest situation via email, e-news and our other social media forums. Our weekly club e-news will no longer go out on a weekly basis however, we will endeavour to keep this form of communication open albeit on a less regular basis.

Another interesting night for our Friday Pursuit Race. Due to the Strong Wind Warning and rough conditions it was decided quite late on Friday to postpone the Junior Crews involvement however, one our junior crews didn't get the memo so well done to Beau and his dad Cam who apparently had an exciting and rather wet time out on Fransiska but both had a smile on their faces. We had nine yachts sign on for the race which was great considering it was a bit bumpy on the course. Unfortunately we had a couple of retirements including a dead battery but from all reports it was a great night despite being a little wet for the crews.
Big thank you to our Race Officer Peter Bulka and his trusty team in the tower for a great job.

15 Sailing Movies to Watch If You Have To Stay At Home
If the thought of being quarantined sends you into a spiral of restlessness, rest assured: you’re not alone. What does one do when you’re not allowed to leave your house? We suggest you 15 sailing movies to see. Which one is your favourite?
How did you get that eye patch?
A sailor and a pirate are in a bar recounting their adventures at sea. Seeing the pirate’s peg-leg, hook, and eye patch the sailor asks: “So, how did you end up with the peg-leg?”
The pirate replies: “We were caught in a huge storm and a giant wave swept me overboard. Just as me crew were pullin’ me out a school of sharks appeared and one of ’em bit me leg off.”
“Blimey!” said the sailor . “And how’d you get the hook?”
“Arrrr…”, mused the old salt, “I got into a fight over a woman in a bar, and me hand got chopped off.”
“Blimey!” remarked the sailor. “And how about the eye patch?”
“Oh that,” said the pirate, looking embarrassed. A seagull droppin’ fell into me eye.”
“You lost your eye to a seagull dropping?” the questioner asked incredulously.
Well…” said the old sea dog, ” it was me first day with the hook.”
