ZVYC News 1 December 2016

Dear Members and Friends,

The North Sails Regatta was well supported with over 50 boats on the water, from 7 year old’s to 70 year old’s! The club had a great vibe from early morning to late evening. Thank you Rick Nankin and your North Sails team (it was good to see all the old dinghy sailors from North Sails back at the club) for the great prizes and for sponsoring this great day! See our Facebook page for photo’s and results! 
We would like to thank our volunteers for their help on Safety and Committe boats, without you, this regatta would not have been possible:
Barbi Rickard, Piet Groenhof, Margarethe Schaefer, Lenore Holliday, Tony Diekmann, Rob Slater, Keith Hill, Stu Penney and Chris Deary! Thank you!

Pre-Nationals Youth Training
Thank you to Peter Hall for arranging this great week (Monday to Thursday) of pre-Nationals youth training. We had Roger Hudson and Asenathi Jim on board as well as Claire Walker and Josh Selig coaching alongside, as the juniors were racing in the channel with winds in excess of 25 knots for all 4 days. Results and pictures to date are on our Facebook page. A big thanks to North Sails for the prizes.
