We had 35 boats for our Club Championship racing last Saturday. It was another gusty shifty southerly, averaging around 15 knots, and this time we raced up into the entrance of Rose Bay.
The winners were as follows: in the Standards, Mark Bethwaite and Rod Barnes, in the Radials, Campbell Patton and Marlena Berzins, and in the 4.7s, Otto Henry (our newest member – see below) and Daniel Costandi.
Thank you to our PRO, Jonathan Stone, assisted by Clare Alexander, and our COTD, Julian van Aalst, assisted by James Leaver and Charlotte Alexander. And thanks to our rostered canteen volunteer, Nick Pellow, who assisted our dedicated regular team of Paul, Andrea and Shirley.
This week was significant; it was the inaugural session of the Brett Beyer Saturday program (which be referred to from now on as the BBSP). It was a huge success, with 22 subscribers receiving on-water tips, a post-racing briefing in the clubhouse, and individual reports to come. If you’re not in the program and you passed someone wearing a coloured bib, savour that moment because Brett has promised it won’t be occurring in 10 weeks’ time!
