Saturday 26 May a good sized fleet participated in three short trapezoid course races in the ASC – APYC short course event. Sailing was in perfect autumn conditions with maximum 19 degrees temperature and 5 to 10 knot northerly breeze. For the first time we had all 4 of the club’s new RS Zests racing with their yellow mainsails and jibs. Also three Mirrors with red sails and spinnakers, and a couple of Pacers, one of which was sailed by a new ASC family. All up six parent-child combinations were out sailing, 10 juniors in Optimist/club Ozi Optis and senior members and some winter members out in single handed classes made for a good ASC fleet with promise for the future. The two Zests were also taken out on sunday at the monthly social sailing day, with one of them sailed by a couple of visitors from Port Melbourne Yacht Club following an invite to PMYC members to sail with us on the Lake.
