Southern Charter Classic Series & Sunday Afternoon Sailing

Dear Members and Sailors, HAVE YOU ENTERED FOR THE SOUTHERN CHARTER CLASSIC SERIES??? Early Entries close tonight at midnight. For the full program and to enter ONLINE, click the link: southernchartersailing.com/zvyc ZVYC are STILL looking for volunteers on Safety Boats and Committee Boats. Please contact the office should you be able to assist. Sunday Afternoon Sailing – Promotional Draft We have had the Opening Cruse & first race of the season & what fantastic weather we had for this, as well as a very well attended Youth High Performance Training Camp, but the first true club sailing is only scheduled for Sunday 25 September! Last year we had little to no afternoon sailing, the club was dead after 2pm, the socializing just wasn’t there! Well, Rick Nankin & Doug Alison would like your support to change this! Let’s get back some great afternoon sailing with some socializing, one of the best ways to improve your sailing is to talk to & learn from other sailors. Many sailors do other things in the morning, church, cycling, running etc. We are committed to having a well-run separate afternoon series. We need more sailors, we would like our friends back, let’s invite those sailors we haven’t seen at ZVYC for a while to join us! Contact Doug doug@easymotion.co.za or Rick rick.nankin@northsails.com if you have any ideas you would like to contribute. ZYVC use to produce the majority of SA’s top sailors & we would like to see us there again so the plan so far is:- Good prestigious racing – longer courses mixed with some short courses Regularity – Sundays start at 14h30, off...
