Commodore's Comments

All eyes have been on Bermuda this week and it was fantastic to see Pete and the ETNZ boys deal with the classy outfit Artemis.  It has created a real buzz throughout the country and I cannot wait for the Americas Cup to begin. The whole team has continued to show great improvement throughout the regatta and I’m sure Mr Spithill will have plenty on his mind as Sunday’s racing draws closer.
A few people have asked whether we will be screening races at the Club – the answer is that the clubrooms will be open to watch the racing at 6.30am (on Prime) Sunday 18th June and Monday 19th June, after which we will review and update as we progress towards finish line. Those watching are welcome to bring along some food to cook on the BBQ.  Contact Lance Putan or Andy Kennedy for further information.
Peter and ETNZ’s success in the Louis Vuitton Cup was not the only very notable achievement for the Club this week. Congratulations to the women’s keelboat team consisting of Club Coaches Maria Ferrario and Kirsten Moratz, along with Lisa Knapton, Sas Pearce, Fi Charman and Fi Chapman who travelled across to the Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron to compete in the Australian Women’s Keelboat Regatta.  They did a lot more than compete! They won Division 2 EHC and came second in the S80 class. Well done to the team on an outstanding result.  Hopefully one of them will write a report for this newsletter but in the meantime there is a good article on the Sail World Australia website, follow this link: http://www.sail-world.com/Australia/27th-Australian-Womens-Keelboat-Regatta-over-and-out/154530
This Sunday sees the continuation of the Burnsco Winter Series which is having a good turnout this year with the Multihulls out there racing too. But I have been asked to mention the fact that we are constantly on the look-out for new people to join our team who help the race officers start and finish these races during the winter and also on Wednesday nights through the summer. If you feel like you might be interested on a regular or occasional basis, please get in touch with Bruce Harrison (bjh1900@gmail.com) or leave your details with the Club Office (ph 5785512) and someone will get back to you.
And finally please ensure that you have good stocks of sedatives and blood pressure medication for Sunday morning – I think it’s going to be an exciting ride!
Good sailing and GO ETNZ!

finish with a laugh..

 An old sea captain was sitting on a bench near the wharf when a young man walked up and sat down. The young man had spiked hair and each spike was a different color.... green, red, orange, blue, and yellow.
After a while the young man noticed that the captain was staring at him.

"What's the matter old timer, never done anything wild in your life?

The old captain replied, "Got drunk once and married a parrot. I was just wondering if you were my son!"
