Shameless bump!!

If the weather predicted is anything like Saturday just gone it is going to make for some exhilarating sailing! The guys had a good 10-12knots on the dam, combined with some good winters sunshine to warm up in once off the water and dry.

Hope to see you all there.

Only 1 more sleep to go people......

There is already a number of Nacra sailors out there and setting up camp for the night. The winds are looking good and the forecast of showers continues to get put back by a day.

Where else can you get 2 days of racing, boating permit, camping and good country hospitality for $60?

The Scouts are out there all weekend cooking, so you dont even need to cater, just hook up you boat, a change of clothes and you are away.

See you there!
