Report for January 21, 2024 

A very hot day (33.5 degrees Celsius), with little N - NE wind to speak of, presented our five sailors with some challenging times on the water today. 

Weed was a serious hazard, with the rescue craft being called upon twice today.

We sail on Thursday and Sunday afternoons at 1PM, Sandstone Lake, Treefrog Street at the recreation pergola. 

Thursday is an open event, any class of boat. The afternoon is used to test boats, discuss tuning tips etc. Sunday is for DF65’s only and races are conducted in accordance with accepted sailing rules. Scores are recorded and handicaps calculated.  

 

This is a very inexpensive hobby, but if you are interested we have a loan yacht that can be used on Thursday afternoons. 

 

Hope to see you on the water.
