With a 10-12 knot South Easter, 10 boats started a four race day. The morning proved light and fluky winds with MB & Bonnie excelling in these conditions.Peter & Bailey sailed fast and confirmed it’s not a good idea to rush when rigging up – there was a bit of re-rigging happening on the water.Tait & Kyle dragged an anchor around in the morning but were able to come out of Race 3 with

The day started overcast and with no wind. The south easterly filtering in at around 11. With 8 to 12 knots blowing, sailing got underway around 1pm. 3 races were sailed before a quick stop for a sausage then back out for 2 more before home time. Every one had a great day on the water. Ella and Hannah did well to give me a hand on the start boat. Good job girls.Regards Jake de Rooy

With a 15-20 NE today, it proved, as always, to be very eventful.The day of racing managed to start at midday after the minor setback of the pin-end mark not standing up. Will, Oscar and I managed to get three races in before lunch. The second race proved to be a bit of problem with Jeremy and Andrew snapping the mast of Jeremy’s new “old” sixteen just after the start, seconds before the

Families and friends on their chosen craft racing around the awesome Jervis Bay, with a moderate South to south east breeze that sometimes tricked even he most experienced local sailors. The fleet of 13 cats carved up the bay in 3 early races with frenzied activity at each of the starts. A compressed line made all competitors think about were best to position there attacks on each race. With some interesting

Well, what a beautiful day Sunday 13th October. The best part was to welcome back James R. It was great to catch up with his life experiences of New Caledonia. Or just chat.Three 16's got on the water about mid day, Mick and an unknown crew, Graham and Paul, and Scott and Simone. Graham & Paul made a spectacular return to the beach when the NorWester hit. The other two boats, returned with

Fun day was had on Jervis Bay. The club shared it with the 8-10 Navy ships from a variety of visiting Countries. We all looked up into the Sky to watch the Navy Helicopter perform off the Point. During the races two Water Police went through on their Seadoo ski-doo ,what ever they are called? The club also had a guest visit from the Tri Owned plastic boat oh its called a Getaway, however

What a great day, 12 boats on the water at some time during the day.Welcome Uncle Mick & Karen Kenny, who are made a spectacular entry to their warm up for the World’s Grand Masters. However it’s not good to have two blind people on one boat. It was noticed they headed off to the hazard marker off Plantation Point. Mick did say that the reach back was the best sail of the day!

What was already shaping up to be a pretty, scenic day on Jervis Bay with light E/ENE winds was further enhanced by the presence of 10 very colourful Hobie 16's (well except for 'upyazall' maybe, who's younger years could well be some time ago) and 2 Hobie 18's. Nice to see Tait and Donna on their crisp and bright looking 16, and welcome to Darryl and Sue as new members to VSC . Good to see them and
The Season Wraps Up

The footy season has dinted the numbers but those that sailed enjoyed a delightful day and a gentle nor-easter. Dianne continues to improve as she comes to terms with the speed of her new boat. The Doopers shone in the light conditions taking all three line honours. The fortiers were again showing signs of 16 envy, rumour is, something they will soon cure themselves.What a great season it has been
