HYC News. 17/9/07

Dear sailor,

Humpybong yacht club has now completed three excellent weekends to sailing and the weather has been glorious.

The second of September'saw opening day with three races completed in the best conditions, blue skies, warm water and sunshine with breezes to about 10 knots.

On the ninth of September was the first heat of our Moreton Bay Marine supplies club championships. The weather started out around 8 to 10 knots, with the breezes building to 20 knots for the last race. This soon sorted out who was who, with some spectacular spills and rollovers. Some sailors even had to be rescued as they were parted from their boats and others just got themselves back on the wheels, dusted themselves off and continued on their merry way. The winner of the $50 Moreton Bay Marine supplies like his style draw was Tony Wickings. Don't forget, that if you have any breakages, call in and see Mary and Andy at Moreton Bay Marine supplies and mentioned you are a member of Humpybong yacht club and they will gladly give you a 10% discount on your repair and chandlery needs.

The next club championships will be held on the 14th of October and is proudly sponsored by Brisbane catamaran Centre with another $50 gift voucher lucky sail draw. So remember you have to be there to win it.

Sunday the 16th of September saw the first of our Commodore handicap series sailed in the most perfect conditions you could only dream of, bright sunshine, 27° and 10 to 15 knot north to north easterly winds. A great day was had by all, with over 20 boats at the start line, with more than 15 boats in division two, that is a great effort. Let us see if we can keep this up by giving you the sailor the courses you deserve. Sunday also saw three hartlys present, with a course to die for. It was great to see these boats on the water along with some cat rigged 4.9 taipans, a couple of international canoes, some Nacra 16 squares, and a couple of marie 4.3’s. Division 2 is growing well and is a great Division to race, so if you know anyone who has a 14 or a 16 foot boat and would like a great day out please invite them along.

Don't forget our upcoming events:

Sunday the 23rd September short-course series.

Sunday the 30th September Diggers Memorial. Proudly sponsored by the RSL Redcliffe. This event is one day of a two-day series, the second day will be held on October 28. So if you have missed any of our series so far, then this event may fit your schedule.
