Greetings all,

Despite the onerous forecast we had a lovely days sailing. There was one light shower about 1.40pm, then it was dry and warm.

On the way to the club I cross the Waimakariri River, and it was in full flood between the secondary stopbanks……very impressive.

Thanks to Tom W and Allen A for their RO assistance, it made my job easier.

Now being placed at the start finish line I never heard any humorous comments, but can say that the behaviour was good again…..great.

Congratulations to our podium finishers; Chris Stricker (we were getting tired of scoring him first), Dayele and Roy. You will notice there were only 5 heats, that was because we had a long course and light winds.

Next RO’s and assistants are; July 24 – Keith May & Glen Church. July 31 – Keith Drewitt & Hugh Hobden.

Your new seasons program version 3, will be sent out very soon.
