Thursday Snippets, 4 April

The published club racing program for April has been suspended. After a dry first 3 months of 2019 the water level in Albert Park Lake is currently well down on its maximum and barely suitable for boating activity.  ASC and APYC duty crews will conduct scratch races in the northern half of the lake from 2.30 on saturdays 6th and from 2pm on 13th April provided there is no further drop in water level. As per the club program there is no club sailing on 20th and 27th April, with a club working bee scheduled for am on the 27th.

For those wanting to take their boat away and sail on 6th and/or 13th April, you would be welcomed at a top of bay club such as Port Melbourne, Williamstown, Altona or Elwood. Rod Thomas plans to sail PMYC with one or two others on Saturday 6th. Ron Fergusson will be sailing his Aero at Black Rock YC in the Skiff Regatta on 6 and 7 April.

     The 2019 ASC winter season which runs from May to September is due to commence on 4 May. Commencement date is dependant on an improvement in the Lake water level.
