Whats happening this month with the CDIV

Nespresso Youth Training Week. Great news that the club has enough sailors for at least two crews. This is a regatta for junior members in Elliott 7m yachts raced at Kawau Island c/- RNZYS.

420 radio usage, the club is spending a small fortune on VHF radios and they’ve become a consumable item. We also can’t have defective radios on race days. As a result we can no longer afford to lend radio’s to 420 teams training from the club on outside of organised events. Related to this members are reminded that for self-directed training that it is the responsibility of parents when juniors are out on the harbour; outside of organised events.

Class Reps: The Centreboard division has active class representatives for all the following: Green Optimist, Open Optimist, P Class, Starling, Laser, 3.7 Class, Windsurfing, don’t hesitate to email secretary.cdiv@gmail.com if you want to get in contact.

Optimist Green Fleet: Welcome to all our new green fleet parents, you are encouraged to go out on the water to see racing up close, especially from the start boat and in rescue boats, please don’t hesitate to introduce yourself and bring your lunch. Time is running out, the last day of the winter series is August 20. Note prize-giving is to follow on the day.

3.7 Demo boat: This is being used by juniors and anyone is welcome to use it; including senior sailors 60kg up to 90kg. It can be booked and used by anyone interested and help is available to rig up and a degree of free coaching contact: Chris secretary@3-7Class.org.nz

Rescue Boats: A reminder that the minimum crew is two on all typbc power boats. Also that there is a minimum of one supervising adult when coaches <18 are operating.

Boat Storage Shed: There has been repeated blocking of fire exit lane in storage shed, it is important to understand where the fire exit lane is and then to keep this clear. Note that boat storage renews end of August.
