Sunday 29th March – last Junior day…

Some fun challenging conditions on the water last week, three races completed well done to all. Many thanks to all who helped out coordinating moving the boats around the apron during the Ironman event. All went smoothly thanks to everybody’s cooperation and patience. Big effort by all. And congratulations to Aaron Defina, who completed the Ironman event in 14.5 hours, huge effort…Well done Aaron!

This week marks the end of our Junior Learn to Sail and Race programs. Another successful season, many thanks to the all the parents who have helped out, our Junior Instructors (Rachel, Emma and Molly) and of course Paul G, Chris and all their helpers. Make sure you come down for the last day of the season…and dont forget the presentation lunch in May (see below)
