We welcome back our teams of junior sailors who have been sailing in the Laser Radial Worlds in Medemblik, Netherlands; and the Optimist sailors who were in Qingdao at the International Optimist Training Camp & Regatta 2017.

It is with sadness and regret that I was informed of the passing of Life Member Mrs. Jean Anstee-Bennett in Sydney, Australia on 12th August at the age of 92 years.  Jean was the widow of the late Paul Anstee-Bennett, a distinguished Past Commodore of Zeekoe Vlei Yacht Club who went on to become an IYRU Race Officer and later an IYRU Judge.
Jean and Paul contributed greatly to Club activities during an era when much of the sailing took place in Finns, Sharpies and Flying Dutchmen, all of which Paul sailed with success.
