Final reminder for Club Champs tomorrow and 5th May.
Briefing 9.30am (I suggest being rigged and nearly ready by this time)
Race Start 10.30am - 4 races back to back around 30 mins each
Sausage sizzle (free), and hot chips $2 after sailing, and bar will be open :)
Daniel is running Crunchie racing for the newer and less confident sailors. Same times. First in, first served if you want to use a red boat. Get there in plenty of time to get ready.
Finally, there will be a suggestions box on the bar top tomorrow, and next week. Let the club know what things we have done well this season, and things we can improve on, or introduce. Can be anonymous, or put your name on it.
See you all tomorrow :)
Woah, what a contingent we had at the Opti nationals. 8 sailors! (Max, Lola, Frances in Open, and William, Andrew, Ben, Tate and Luke in Green). They all sailed extremely well, and represented Torbay Sailing Club in fantastic fashion!
Now time for the REAL regatta of the year..... our very own CLUB CHAMPS :)
The NOR and SSI are attached.
A few important things to note:
1) Start times!
2) You will need to bring your own lunches as races are back to back.
3) Free sausage sizzle after sailing and of course the bar will be open.
4) If you are a parent NOT sailing, it would be greatly appreciated if you are able to help out. We have bar, sausage sizzle, beach duties, RIB and Lady Waiake spaces to fill.
5) No coaching. There will be Crunchie racing for orange fleet at the same times as the big course.
If you are able to help out either Sunday, please let me know via messenger.
These are the final two weeks of the season, so we hope to see ALL members and sailors out there giving it their best. :)
April/May 2016 is a key time for the Torbay Sailing Club as the existing 50 year old clubhouse is in the process of being demolished to make way for the the new clubrooms in preparation for the 2016/17 season. The new clubrooms have been designed by club member Tymen Tolsma from Stephensen and Turner and mark a significant upgrade in design and functionality. Photos of proposed building are available on this site. It is a new era for the club and makes for exciting times as we move forward in such a positive way.
The plan is to have the new club house up and running in time for the Sir Peter Blake Regatta in December – Even if it is slightly unfinished inside.
