Commodore's Comments

Three Kiwi boats are currently racing at the Medemblik Regatta which is about 40km north of Amsterdam and all three have the TYPBC link. Gemma Jones  & Jason Sauders made a good start in  light winds and are second in the Nacra after day 1. Max van der Zalm also started well and is third in the under-19 RSX:8.5 fleet.  Veerle Ten Have is also racing in the RS:X Women and is currently 25th in the 48 boat fleet. Good luck to them for the rest of the regatta. Full results can be found here

35 boats turned up for the start of the Steve’s Marine Centreboard Winter Series last Sunday. The weather and wind conditions cooperated enabling Warren and his team to get in three good long races.

A reminder: There is no Centreboard sailing on Sunday June 3rd.

I was really pleased to see a good turnout last Friday night to hear Lisa Blair talk about her experiences circumnavigating Antarctica, including dealing with a broken mast that was threatening to sink her boat when she was about 1000 miles south of Cape Town. It was a riveting talk by an excellent speaker.

Next weekend sees the Burnsco Winter Series for the keeler division continue. Burnsco have really come to the party with place prizes as well as a $50 voucher which can be won by any member of the crew as long as they sign in at the bar after the race, but winners must be present to collect the prize when it is drawn. Many thanks to Burnsco for their support.

For those of you following the University of Waikato marine campus issue, Council had planned to discuss the matter at the May meeting of the Economic and Development Committee at which we were going to make a presentation on behalf of the Club – along with the Game Fishing Club and the Marina Society. We have been told that this discussion has been deferred until the June meeting, so nothing further to report on this matter for the moment.

Some dates for your diary:
WOW AGM Tuesday May 29  7.00pm
TYPBC AGM Tuesday July 10  7.30pm

Please bear in mind that over the next couple of weeks Lynne will be on Annual Leave and the office will “manned” by Jo, Tracey, and Ada. They will do their best to sort your issues but please allow for the fact that they may be dealing with matters that they do not normally have to.

Good sailing.

finish with a laugh..

Freya was driving her Chevrolet home in New Mexico when she saw an elderly Apache woman walking along the side of the road. She stopped the car and asked the woman if she would like a lift?

With a silent nod, the woman climbed into the car.  Freya tried in vain to make conversation with the Apache woman.

The old Apache looked closely at everything she saw, studying every little detail, until she noticed a red gift bag on the seat next to Freya.

'What's in the bag?' asked the old woman.

'It's a bottle of gin that I got for my husband.'

The Apache woman was silent for another minute or two. Then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, she said, 'Good trade.'
