Dear Laser Sailors
Due to unfortunate storm damage at Middle Harbour Amateur Sailing Club the second round of the NB Sailsports Sprint Series on Sunday 31st May 2015 has been moved from MHASC to Avalon Sailing Club. The first start will be not before 11.00am. The NB Sailsports Sprint Series revised Notice of Race is here.
The sailing will take place in the area off Sand Point. Launching is recommended at Sand Point, where plenty of trailer and car parking is available just adjacent to Iluka Road. For those that are familiar with it – this is the beach where the Hobies usually race.
Following racing a sausage sizzle and bar will operate at Avalon Sailing club and we would like to encourage sailors to come along and share in the après sail fun. To this end NB Sailsports will be running a raffle for a sail – with the proceeds going to the refurbishment of the club.
Jan Scholten is the commodore at Avalon S.C. He can provide additional information and can be contacted on 0418 245 902.
MHASC are working to repair the damage to the club. The club sustained damage to flooring, launching ramp, piles and now has a change room with a sea view. There is information on the storm damage and the club activities on their web site here.
And now for something completely different;
· Lane Cove 12 Foot Sailing Club is short of old style Laser boom vang fittings for their learn to sail program. If you have any such fittings in your spares kit bag then Tony Mulhearn at firstname.lastname@example.org would be pleased to give them a new life.
· Laser Masters don’t forget the South Pacific Masters Championship is on earlier this year from 15 -18th May 2015 at Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron. This is always a great event. The Notice of Race is here and you can enter online here.
