Saturday we had the Ladies Day Race with a fleet of 8 boats. Wind and weather allowed for a quick race around the cans. Congratulations to the following top finishers: 1st Water Music, 2nd Pure Magic, 3rd Little Wing. Thank you to the men who had ladies on their boats. I’m sure all the ladies enjoyed their sail.

Gaul Regatta is postponed until further notice as there is still a sand bar issue – they hope to resolve this issue for Gaul Regatta 2018.

Mark Algra is doing a talk on Thursday 17th August at 18h00
