Weekend Sailing Report - 7/8 Nov
The Pelicans had a super fun morning on Saturday with our “Bring a Mate” day! There was a nice easy breeze for our sailors to take their buddy out for a sail – it was a bit of a “muck about in boats” kinda day! Followed up by a BBQ for lunch for Pelican sailors, friends and families.
Some of our Flying 11 sailors ventured down to Cronulla to sail the first heats of their NSW State Championship – see separate post about their results!
Our Saturday afternoon fleet faced a 10-15knot easterly for their two point score races.
