Race 1 25th Feb
With the new sailing season fast approaching, Social Sailing, an opportunity for the community to try sailing, has begun to generate a lot of interest. This is a great opportunity for the public to come down and have a go at sailing. At the same time, an opportunity arises for boat owners and skippers to meet potential crew, either for casual or permanent positions.
Last Saturday, 23 potential crew turned up for an ideal day on the water. And what a day it was! Five boats, Matangi, Cool Change, Blonde Moment, Trivial Pursuit and Mistery made themselves available, with the visitors distributed among them.
Sailing in a 10 knot easterly in Mackay is as good as it gets, with the boats all trying various activities to ensure that their passengers enjoyed the opportunity. All visitors left with nothing but praise, and many will be returning to advance their experiences.
Dates for future Social Sailing days have been identified and will be published on the club website and advertised within the local community.
