ZVYC News 29 March 2018

Dear Members and Friends,

Sunday was the last day of Junior Training and went off with a blast!! 
Novice / Intermediates & B fleet sailors (those not sailing inter-schools at IYC) all joined in for some fun and games (and snuck in loads of learning without them realizing!). A “no sails” day & sailing for those that wanted to which ended in a picnic raft! 
IYC held the Inter-Schools of which SACS won with Bishops coming in at second!
Well done to our winning team (from Left):
Max Hall, Bryan Carstens, Matt Ashwell, Dave Mackinnon, Adam Knox, Hamilton Slater, Ross Mackinnon and Cullen Keytel!
See our Facebook page for the images. Full results HERE..
