Thursday Snippets, 13 June

The Albert Sailing Club winter season is finally going to start on Saturday 15th June, with the club open from 10am, and the first race of the Winter Series from 2pm. Then on Saturday 22nd June, there will be a couple of short races from 2pm as part of the ASC-APYC Challenge. The water level in the Lake has shown some improvement and is back to around the level it was in early March,. Sailing with some of centreboard up will be necessary, with aquatic weed to be negotiated, and launching from the jetty in front of the club or the ramp recommended. The situation will improve with more rains and storm water inflows to the Lake.

From the 15th June the club’s Pacer, Laser, Sabre, and plastic OzI Opti boats will be available for use and hire by club members, depending upon weather conditions. ASC’s Zest, Quest, and International Optimist boats will become available in coming weeks with further improvement in the condition of the Lake
The Club’s annual regatta which was scheduled for 22/23 June, was cancelled earlier in June due to the Lake conditions. As always visitors will be welcome to sail with the ASC fleet in our winter series with club races most saturdays till late September, Be aware that the condition of the Lake as at mid June is not as we would want, but will improve.

Updates on our winter sailing season, including training programs, and the condition of the Lake will continue to be provided weekly in ASC’s Thursday Snippets which is emailed to subscribers and published on Facebook and our club website.
