Eight intrepid and keen Tasar teams turned up at Georges River on a sad looking day on Sunday. As we had no starter for the day Ratz drew the shortest of all the short straws and got to be the starter for the day.
The course was set in a light northerly breeze and once the countdown sequence started the breeze immediately shifted to the Northwest.more
A 15-20 knot nor'easter in September....now that’s a good start to the season....aching bodies today ....plenty of Voltarin will be consumed .
It was our first day of three handicap scoring races with times being adjusted after each race...........quite a few gained handicap on one race then lost it on the next or vice versa.more
It was the first official day back on the water and 10 Tasars took to the water to wash the cobwebs off the boats and the gear. The group welcomed one new boat MKR with Kim Phillips my old crew from last year letting her husband Mark skipper their boat around the course.

Today saw the longest elapsed race times sailed this season due to very erratic light to moderate breezes which seemed to fluctuate endlessly between SW & SE.

But it wasn’t too tricky for `Another Roady’ skippered& crewed by Peter& Pia.more
All said, it has been a `marvellous’ season of racing and a rewarding one for the Club and its members! The GRSC tasars became a class of their own, growing from 2-4 boats in 2012/2013, to now 18 on the books, with another one or two to join for next season.
