Wednesday night Sailing 

A light SW wind and overcast skies presided over the 39 yachts on Wednesday Night, the Multis have a nice 5 boat fleet with Feisty Feline taking line honours and Spitfire winning on handicap.
The Div. 4 fleet is ever growing and quite a variety of yachts are competing, Freedom was very fast in these conditions to take Line Honours with Mintaka taking the handicap win.
A large fleet in Div. 3 found the light winds in the lee of Matakana Is to be tricky with No Regrets taking Line and handicap honours.
Div. 2 experienced the same conditions with Sabian keeping well clear to get Line and handicap honours, also.
Kaimai Express and Whatever had a close tussle, with the rest of the fleet relatively close behind. Eventually Whatever took Line honours with Time Warp with a longer rudder winning on Handicap. 

wow news

The Women on Water crew had a great turnout for their basic sailing skills night last week.

Fellow sailors generously gave their time to teach the group more about different parts of a boat and what they do, the Tauranga harbour, how to tie different knots, how to operate the radio, use a winch and lots of terminology!

They also had a special surprise - one of their generous sponsors, Trudy from Trudy Calder Pilates, came along to show everyone a few moves to ensure we keep our cores activated while we sail. What a treat!


Centreboard division

To all Sailors,

No Club Racing this long weekend but we will have a Destination Sail planned for this Sunday weather permitting which looks grand in long term forecast.

As usual the destination will be a mystery depending on tide and wind direction. For all our green fleet it really is a really enjoyable event.

Contact Mark Wilkins mark.wilkins@dux.co.nz for all interested.

Be rigged and ready by 12.30 noon for briefing and directions. We also need parents to with patrol boats without them the sail cannot proceed Thanks to Jeff he has already put his name forward.

Coastal classic race

Make sure you follow Frenzy and Truxton during the Coastal Classic on predictWind Tracker starting tomorrow.

Good luck

Big thank you

 School team sailing is under way again, which always means a big job getting all the 420s up to scratch and tuned right.  In this regard a HUGE thanks must go to Leanne Warren and Richard Burling, who have spent hours going over every boat, changing setup, getting replacement bits etc.  They just saw that it needed doing and did it!  On behalf of all the school teams, a big thank you from BoPSAT.


We have this week applied to TECT and Lion Foundation for two more new 420s to give us six good boats for the next few years – thanks to Fi Charman for putting that together. Cross your fingers everyone!
