OTB update and news

Friday, 7th June 2019

Dear OTB sailors and friends,

Our 2018/2019 OTB Sailing Program has now concluded with the last of our Winter Series completed on Sunday.

The wind never really settled, but Alex Newman who was PRO for the first time managed to add another two races to the series tally to make it 12 in total.

It has been a fantastic season on and off the water and one that we can build on for next season. 

All our classes appear to have a really strong core, driven by passionate members, including the Optimist, Cadets, Lasers, Tasars and Skiffs.

A big thank you to those who have worked hard to support your individual class and see it grow, and thank you to all the parents who have stepped up and volunteered time to make it all possible.

Winter is a great time now to plan for next year, which will be a busy one as we kick off with Sail Sandy in October and host close to 300 laser sailors in January and February 2020.

To start getting prepared we need to make sure all our volunteers are skilled and properly qualified for the areas they would like to support, so please contact the boating office if you would like to up skill yourself in First Aid, Powerboat Handling or VHF Radio communication. We will need all hands on deck for Sail Sandy in early October, so please also let the Boating office know that you are available when they ask. It is always a fantastic event and one that really show cases our great club!

Finally just some housekeeping in regards to OTB storage if you have a boat stored in the OTB area, it would be great if you can check it is correctly stored in your allocated area.


Best Regards,

David Suda
OTB Club Captain
