Thursday Snippets, 9 September

This weekend’s activity at Albert Sailing Club is the saturday afternoon Zoom catchup at 4.30. ASC members and friends of ASC most welcome to connect in to the informal saturday chat sessions which will continue while we have lockdown in Melbourne. We had a couple of extra faces last saturday with Pam Webster and Colin Wright joining us with Colin complete with Bulldogs scarf in preparation for the saturday night Bulldogs vs Brisbance clash.
Login on saturday 11th using PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone via  Passcode: ASC

This week’s attachment is an oil painting of the gaff rigged schooner Patanella on approach to Heard Island  on the fringe of Antarctica. The painting is by Jack Woods, an ASC member who has been researching and painting pictures of sail boats, in particular classic boats, as a hobby for over 30 years.  Jack provides a synopsis of the Patanella’s trip to Heard Island and the mysterious disappearance of Patanella off the NSW coast in 1988 on  Patanela  If you have an interesting nautical theme painting or photo to share via Snippets send an email to me with attachment via
