This is it - The Final Breaking News Flash to give you all the info you need for the weekend ahead!
Sit down, make a cuppa and read on - we have lots to share with you!
Trailers and Boat Storage
Storage of trailers and boats from Friday is fine at Steyne Park and there will be security Saturday night watching over boats left out.
Will be available at Double Bay Public School across from the park on both mornings. A payment of $20 for the two days will be collected at the gate from anyone that uses the car park. These funds go to the school to thank them for making the school parking lot available. Parking will be available from 7.30 am and you can park your trailer there too if you wish.
The fabulous Darcie Collington will be on the water and around the Club taking photos all weekend! Watch out for her posts on Facebook. Your amazing photos will be posted with a watermark BUT the good news is that you can buy a gorgeous High Definition keepsake post event. There will be a flyer in your regatta bag with details on how to obtain these. Darcie will be joined by Jon West - who will also be taking photos on and off the water. It's important we capture the whole weekend so if you can - smile for the cameras.
Yoga will happen both mornings at 7.30 am. Bring your mats. We have a big interest in this and look forward to you enjoying a calming introduction to both days on our amazing Sydney Harbour spot. Dress appropriately - it might be a bit chilly as the sun warms the deck but its so beautiful to stretch and breathe with the guidance of our yoga instructor from @theyogahousegladesville.
If you are rostered on to help out over the weekend - please turn up on time for your rostered shift. We have had lots of people who want to help out - which is wonderful - so we want to spread the load and make sure that people aren't being left on the job past their designated time.
See the regatta website at www.DBSC.com.au to get the schedule for the weekend so you can plan your time over the two days.
Dinner Saturday night is a special night were we sit amongst the racks of Lasers and dine on delicious food made by our WR friend @BerntheChef. The clubhouse will be dressed up - and you are welcome to, too. The club showers are dedicated to the women of the regatta - YEP - both change rooms are entirely dedicated to us so we can have HOT showers and freshen up for dinner. Dress warm - it is a sailing club over the water.
