eTelltale #26
Sophie & Ella in Italy!
Hi All,

Just a few things to pass on from inbox....not long now to summer so time to get ready! If your Opti is in the shed it might be time to see how clean it is.

To highlight for the girls the VIODA weekend is always popular and does sell out. With only girls it’s the quietest start line you’ll ever hear - good for girls to get away from the boys once a year!

As you can see from the VIODA newsletter there are lots of regattas coming up. For the developing sailors please consider joining lots of MYC families camping at Albury Wodonga Yacht Club Cup weekend - the dam is almost full, and the weekend is lots of fun!

I’ve also included a request from Warwick Pearson VIS Physio for participation in a study he is undertaking around adolescent backs. As some of our kids have had problems, I’d encourage people to be involved. Years ago younger sailors were kept on the water for 7 plus hours which got ridiculous. Logic has partly corrected that, but we still need some science.

And last but not least MYC is trying to raise money to buy Pacers so we can host more school sailing as well as the adult learn to sail. I’m sure our kids would much prefer to race with a home ground advantage and shorter commute.
See you soon, Andrew
