Dolphyn Diary – 30th May 2017

DOLPHYN DIARY NO: 209  30th May  2017                  

Upcoming Club and Sailing Events are on the website and a full Sailing Calendar can be found at http://fbyc.co.za/fbyc-sailing/calendar/.

  • The Sling Lift will be undergoing some repairs starting on Wednesday 31st May. We hope to have it up and running by Monday 5th June or earlier, if we can.
  • The tractor will also be having some repairs done, and will be out of commission for the same period.
Wednesday: Race 5 of the DHL Twilight series plus prizegiving. Start time 17:45. Forecast: gentle westerly, no cloud – plus moonlight for “afters”. Flat water –  should be good. Not quite Miura weather though – again!
Saturday: Although no racing was originally planned for this week-end,
(Sailing Mgr’s brainstorm!!), a Round the Different Cans race is now planned to make up for almost two weeks of “no wind, no racing” – start 14:30. The forecast of a fresh north wester (meaning more flat water) plus a “course with a difference” (?????) should provide an enjoyable afternoon’s sailing. Be there!
