Hi Everyone,

Congratulations to all those that competed in the Lady Skippers Trophy and especially  our winner Julia Barker on Sirocco, a new name for the Honour Board. 

Next Saturday we can expect an increase of Couta Boat's in the Harbour as they arrive from Sorrento to commence a race from Mornington to St Kilda  as part of the the Sailing World Cup festivities starting next week. 

Sailability have a special new Access 303 boat launch tomorrow at 10.30am. We congratulate Sailability for growing their fleet and naming the boat Guiseppe after one of their long term sailors.

It finally looks like the cold weather is behind us and hopefully some warmer weather ahead.

See you at the club, Sheryl
