Blinking Billy 4 April 2016

by

A big thank you to all volunteers for assisting with the 15/16 season. It really was a fantastic year for the club with outstanding performances on the water by all of our sailors with many going on to represent Australia at various international events.

Whilst the season may be over, there are many in the club that will continue to sail throughout winter, with regular training for many. As a committee we are also busy organising several upcoming  events, including:
  • Prize Night, Sat 14th May
  • June Long weekend training camp
  • Working Bee, date TBA
  • Assistant instructors and First Aid Courses, dates TBA
At the June long weekend, the Australian International Cadet Team will be getting together for their first joint training session. As there are 4 interstate boats in the Australian Team, we have been requested to make 4 boats available to these Australian Team members. As such if you are not going to sail at the June long weekend in your cadet, please let Richard Goodfellow (richard.goodfellow at hotmail.com) know as quickly as possible if your cadet will be available.
