Thursday Snippets, 22 June

This coming weekend we have ASC’s annual Winter Regatta. Preferred online entry, notice of race and sailing instructions on www.albertsc.org.au. Short race format. Information session at 1pm for starts from 1.45 on Saturday. Then Sunday (am, pm). Late entries possible up to Information Session. With a cold front predicted Friday night there should be moderate winds across the weekend which will be a welcome change from the light winds over the last month or so. Visitors sailing, spectating or enjoying the warmth of our clubhouse welcome as always.

As at 9am on Thursday 22nd there were 45 Regatta entries. An up to date listing of entries by name and clas will be published on www.albertsc.org.au at approximately 1pm Thursday. There are a couple of ‘demo’ Aero class boats in 7 or 5 sq metre sail configurations available for the weekend for club or state level sailors. Email sailing@albertsc.org.au if you are interested.

There is a special invite to Optimist, Minnow and Open Bic sailors and their parents and anyone else interested to a Presentation for junior sailors in ASC clubrooms 12.20 to 12.40 on Saturday. This precedes the 1pm Day one Information Session. Krystal Weir and Mark Tonner Joyce, two experienced Laser class sailors and coaches will present and discuss Laser 4.7 Pathway Training and Development programs.
