busy weekend

and what a weekend, tail end of (now tropical storm Michael), Storm Leslie, Sandhopper Final Fling and Lift out, First races of the Winter series (13:00 Sat & 14:00 Sun) and the cruisers being lifted out Saturday morning too!
So if you have a boat paid for in the dinghy park, please ensure it is
a) not in the way of either the cruisers or the sandhoppers (row’s I,J,K or M)
b) securely tied down
AND if you have not paid for winter racing or storage, please remove your boat from the dinghy park as they should have all moved last Sunday.

Cadet Week loose ends

3 days to go and it’s looking hot hot hot for next week so plan ahead. Hydration and sunscreen, maybe a beach tent for some groups?

Club Picos are not available to use till Sat 28th. They are being used for sail training Saturday and booked out for Cadet Week. If you have arranged with me to use a club boat during Cadet week, please see me during registration on Sunday (16:30-17:30) to collect your sails.

I have put all the groupings and volunteer rotas on the Cadet notice board in the front of the club. Please take time to check your volunteer role, child’s cadet group and that their boat, sail number and crew are as expected. Please make any amendments on the paper notice board copies. If you with to swap a volunteer duty please write your SWAP on the lists by 16:30 Sunday and see me to tell me what you have agreed.

If you are helping on the stingray beach you will be expected to be dressed to be in the water. Piranha helpers may be in the water if they feel able to help cadets sail, or in a rescue boat starting, timing and recording the results of games and races.

The front Car Park will not be used for the duration of the Week, so please do not park in or block the entrance to the front car park.

Cadets are welcome to Sundays registration, but not required, parents simply need to turn up and pick up their cadets paper bag full of goodies.

Thanks everyone for their hard work, help and sponsorship, without it we could not plan such a fun packed week for our cadets. Take a moment to read this years sponsors, they deserve our thanks and support.

See you on the water soon
Jeremy

Family night (Friday 20th) Sailing kit exchange

Summer has arrived just in time for our first Oppie Beach club. We start this Saturday at 14:00 (changed by the back of the clubhouse). Oppie Beach Club is open to all cadets and adults new to sailing who wish to get on the water for some informal tuition, practice skills form last year or just get in a boat with someone else for the first time. Parents are expected to help hold boats in the water if their child is participating.

On Friday at 7pm we will be going down to the dinghy park to look at how to rig different boats. This is useful for cadets and adults who don’t know or can’t quite remember how to rig and Oppie, Pico or Laser.

In the bar before and after the rigging session I am going to trial a Sailing kit exchange where you can bring any unwanted or too small kit and donate it to the cadets, if the kit is what you need for this year then you may take it and will be expected to provide a small paper donation do the Cadet fund. Thank you.
