On Friday 26th the club had a well supported and well received BBQ and Social Sailing Day.
A Short post event report and photos from Lisa, who was part of the organising group.
We were thrilled to have over 50 people (including members, family, friends and folk from APYC) come along to enjoy our inaugural ASC Australia Day BBQ and Social Sailing.🇦🇺
It was a really relaxed, fun and sociable day with a good number enjoying a morning sail, followed by a delicious BBQ buffet replete with eucalyptus leaves and Australian flags; a spot of Australia Day trivia (taken out by the “Yeah-Nah” team) and fittingly finished off with pavlova and lamingtons. (The big question based on previous BBQ’s is were there Onions on the BBQ Rowley!)
It was wonderful to see so many of our new members supporting the day (including several who had only joined the club in the last week!), and comments on the friendliness of people at the club.

Well done to those in the Social Committee Group who put it all together, and Commodore Greg for his on water support.
