The stage is set for a marvellous weekend on 8-9 September! We are excited to be able to report that the famous, two-time world champ, Nic Douglas (AKA, The Sailor Girl) will be covering our Regatta and the racing on Sunday 9 September and will be providing publicity in the lead up to the event. Ashley Stoddart, a recent Olympian, has also signed up to be one of our coaches.
We have MUSTO on board as a Regatta sponsor and MUSTO shirts will be provided to all our sailors. We also have Boatcrewgear and other line and gear shops setting up pop-up shops at the club for the weekend -- so come on down and buy your new gear and equipment for the coming season.
We are still hoping for 50 entries and are working very hard to spread the word to get as many women and girls to attend the Regatta as possible. So please continue to let your female sailor family and friends know about the fabulous event.
Thank you to all the members who have already volunteered to loan their boats and gear for the weekend. It means that the regatta is more accessible to a range of sailors that wouldn’t otherwise be able to sail. Thanks also to Shirley Roach for hosting Ashley Stoddart, for the weekend!
If you haven’t already volunteered, don’t despair. We’re still looking for more help with the weekend, including the following:
- Drivers to and from the airport to transport our coaches on Friday night and Sunday night.
- Three helpers in and around the kitchen working with the caterer during the Regatta dinner on Saturday September 8 from 5pm – 9 pm.
- Two volunteers to help us coordinate event parking on Saturday September 8 from 7:30am – 9:30am.
To volunteer for driving or kitchen help, please contact Christine Patton at email@example.com; to volunteer to help with parking, please contact Christine Linhart at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks again for everyone’s help in making the Regatta a world-class event!
