Jervis Bay - Australia

The NorEaster took its time coming but was solid 15 to 20 during our race period The story of the day was Tait and Kyle - they had their boat dialled in and took 16 line honours in all 3 races.

14 boats on the water!

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

As good as it gets

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

Who is "Lady Hobie"???

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!

New sailing season kick off

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
