There is one last Saturday of competition before we finish the 2013/14 sailing season so come and join in for the fun and excitement on Saturday 26th April. The race will cover the last of the Class Championship races for the season, and there are some very close results, so come and add to the fleet numbers.
After the race there will be a FREE full on BBQ for all- so bring your family & friends and join in on the upper deck. Hopefully it will be one of those great colourful sunsets that makes our deck the place to be.
Sunday social racing will happen throughout May, race start time 1pm. So make sure you are down there to get started on time. As they are social races, we start just from the end of the club jetty. No canteen will operate during the May races.
As we are half way through the WSC sailing season it’s time to compile a list of jobs that need to be done during this year’s working bees. So if you see anything that needs to be repaired or replaced (safety and security in particular), make a note of it on the whiteboard located outside the training room. Alternatively bring it to the attention of a flag officer or member of the Committee of Management. New members with a fresh set of eyes that may see things around the club that could be improved are encouraged to make a contribution.
For the 2013/14 season we are introducing some new rosters for sailing members to help with club operations on Saturdays. The workload to run and operate the club needs to be shared amongst more people. We are introducing two rosters- one to help serve in the canteen, and one to run the after race BBQ's. For most members you have only been allocated to a roster once during the season.
Situated in Williamstown on The Strand with million dollar views of the Melbourne skyline, our club is a family oriented club that caters for sailors and fishermen as well as those who enjoy the more social side of boating.
