Starting Sailing

Dear Members, Sailors and friends,

It seems like ages since the last time we all met at Fingal.

Corona Virus stopped our activities but we are planning our restart and will resume activities as soon as the State Government permits.

I hope to have some news on this and advice from Australian Sailing very soon.  

Last Sunday was supposed to be our presentation dinner. We will try to organise another date for our formal dinner when State Govt Regs permit, but results from the Summer series have been finalised and winners will be announced soon by email.

So far to date, the club has only missed one scheduled race of the summer season due to the virus. Unfortunately, we had to postpone the Laser Class River Championship and have cancelled all juniors’ activities.

We will resume sailing as soon as possible and hopefully we will conduct some races this winter, although initially sailing may only be in single handers.

At this stage planning for the very popular annual Tumbulgum Race is in progress, maybe only for single handers or “same household” teams, but we will follow any advice from Australian Sailing.

We have two dates in mind for Tumbulgum at this stage so put these in your diaries 

Sunday the 5th of July or Sunday the 20th Sept.

Now is the time to get on top of boat and trailer maintenance.

Check your bearings and springs and get set up for a trouble-free summer.

Any sailors needing help or advice with boat repair work please fell free to phone me anytime.

The club has several very good boats available for full season loan if you feel you can manage a boat.

Corsair “Capers” recently 8th in National Titles is complete and has a good registered trailer.

Olympic 470 class, complete and good condition   good trailer, new bearings, can be registered  

14 ft Taser Hippocampus, with registered trailer

NS14 Blu Tack, with registered trailer  

Get ready for a big sailing season, this being our 10th summer sailing season lets make it our biggest ever.

Stay safe, and I look forward to seeing you at sailing again soon.

Call me anytime for a chat.
