Autumn & Winter Centreboard programme
Perfect conditions at Surfdale on Sunday 5th August with 10 to 15 knots of stable south west breeze and a dry sky. We had our best showing so far in the Laser class with Marcel making the voyage around from Shelly beach plus Robin to keep the pressure on series leader Phil. Add to this a couple of Opti's and Dave's Jollyboat and we had a fun afternoon including a few testing the water temp with full body immersions !
Next race is Sunday 19th August 2018 at Surfdale, briefing at 1300
Most of our summer sailing is held at Oneroa beach where the launching gradient is ideal and the breeze usually kind. In summer we share the bay with anchored cruising boats and occasionally move to Surfdale or Blackpool beaches on the rare occasion conditions at Oneroa are unfavourable.
In Winter we are known to sail Lasers from Shelly Beach with the 'Mid-Winter Slalom' race day a popular social occasion to bring us away from home chores.
Currently we are active in the following classes;
Optimist - Starling - Laser 4.7 - Laser Standard - J14 Jollyboat - Cadet - 420 High School Team Racing
Sept 2017 - there are a number of Starlings arriving on island for sailors close to 50kg as next step from Opti
