    Race season starts

    Finally... after a long wait, the 2024 racing season is open!  We started the season off this Saturday with the First Run Ashore social get-together at the club, which was well attended with lots of food, drink and discussion to be had.  The next day - without a single hangover to be seen, it was the Commodore's Cup one day event marking the first sailing event of the year.  Again, a good turnout with 12

    Improved slipways and launch area

    Faced with emerging rocks on the bay shoreline and a dangerously eroding bank a casual converstion between John Peters and Steve Sallis quickly resulted in planning the works completed pre-season.
