December 2016

We had one of our best turnouts for the 30th Nov meeting but unfortunately the wind decided to disappear. However we re scheduled for the following day and spent a lovely hour and a half tuning and racing the boats. There are another two boats in production and hopefully should be on the water before the new year

October 2016

Good couple of meetings this month. The winds have been good,the boats are getting tuned and our skills are building. We have started racing and courses set have been good;unfortunately when the wind changes it means getting the tender out and asking Rob to reset the course. This gives the rest of us a chance to start the race before he gets back on shore.

August 2016

We have held a couple of meetings during August. Despite the holiday season there were a few of us down at the Club with our boats. The number of boats being built continues to rise steadily, we are overcoming a lot of teething problems and working out ways on how we can improve the reliability of the boats. At the first meeting we set a course and practised race tactics and going around the marks - there was some evidence that we may need to re read the racing rules....
