OTB News and Update

Friday, 12th April 2019

Dear OTB Sailors and friends,

Our Summer sailing program came to a close on Sunday, with the last two races of our Autumn Series completed in tricky conditions.

We had great warm weather and a nice northerly breeze in the morning for JDS, but that faded quickly and swung to the south by late morning.

Our immediate Past Commodore Rob Davis started races from Summer Wind with help from Martyn and Sue Sly, as Endeavour IV was managing the Association Cup races between SYC and RBYC. The team did very well to complete two races in the fickle wind, that ended back in the North by the end of the last race. Thanks to everyone who has volunteered on the water and in the canteen this season, it has been one of the best and I really appreciate your help. Congratulations to all our sailors and we look forward to celebrating the season at our OTB Presentation Night in May.

We still have plenty happening over the next two weeks with the School Holiday Sprints at SYC this Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

There will be a briefing at 11am and racing will start from 12:30 pm both days, with the aim to get as many short races in as possible.

Next week we head to Metung for our Easter regatta and I hope everyone is looking forward to this fantastic weekend away with our Metung Yacht Club friends.

Winter Series racing will start on Sunday 28th April and the roster will be sent out in the next few days.

I look forward to seeing you around the club.

Best Regards,

David Suda
OTB Club Captain.
