The Deirdre Schahinger Interclub Trophy  was won by the Port Adelaide Sailing Club Sailability Team
 

   Event Report 

Goolwa Regatta Yacht Club, the oldest Sailing Club in Australia, hosted the 12th Annual Regatta. This was after a break of three years, due to the low water levels at Goolwa. Here are the results.
 
The event was over 2 days, but the PASC Sailability volunteers were involved for at least 5 days, preparing the team and the boats and packing up on return. I did a count of the people involved from the club. Apart from the Team i.e. Skippers and Crews, There was 6 other volunteers, 10 relatives, 5 visitors and 6 of our “Ladies” The “Ladies” are the PASC Sailability program’s canteen. They had a W/E off, but I did notice that they offered support to anyone who needed it.
 
The weekend at Goolwa started off by unloading the boats and equipment, then everyone met at the Corio Hotel for dinner, which was most enjoyable. We were so lucky with the weather. It was perfect, with an excellent breeze and although there was a bit of flow on the water, our competitors coped really well with unfamiliar conditions and did themselves proud. Lots of photographs and film were taken and so in due course everyone will have the opportunity to see shots of the spectacular event.
 
The catering for the weekend was nothing short of excellent and plentiful. Some of the cakes and deserts were made in advance but everything else was cooked in the tiniest of kitchens by a group of dedicated “Ladies”.
 
We had a couple of funny incidences. On Friday night one of the parents asked me for directions to the Sailing Club. We were in the Corio Hotel at the time so I specifically gave him direction from that point. Next morning, when he left the Caravan Park, he followed my directions which were from the Hotel. He and his son found themselves on dirt track miles from anywhere and nowhere near water. After he told me his story, he added “Yesterday I saw the club from the Hindmarsh Island Bridge” also “I’m a computer programmer with a Logical mind” All tholistening just broke up!
 
Here’s one from Graham Hamilton. “On the 2nd race on Sunday, my opposition Simon Thiele after crossing the finishing line, returned to the yacht basin with me following him. My sails were furled and I was ready to get out of the boat, when word came down from the bridge, that we had another lap to do to finish. We had both come in with one lap to go. My sails were furled and Simon had lost a shackle pin and so the race was certainly now on to re-rig and get back into the fray. With Johno and Noel in my corner and a whole lot of GRYC members on Simon’s boat, we managed to re rig the Liberties in 3 minutes flat allowing me to leave the basin about one minute ahead of Simon and that is how we finished. Needless to say, at the lunch break, I was given numerous lessons on how to count. I think I have it now...2,5,1,3.”
 
The Trophies were presented by the delightful Hon Kelly Vincent MLC who prior, to the presentation went for a sail in a 303 and when asked if she had found her “Sea Legs,” she replied that she still had to find her “Land Legs.”
