Thursday Snippets, 14 March 2024

The second and last club Sailing Day for March is on saturday 16th, with no scheduled sailing on the following F1 Grand Prix and Easter weekends. There is a members meeting in our clubrooms 11am to 12,15pm, and club race at 2.30. Club training boats available for hire by members after the Members meeting subject to weather conditions and approval by Don or Rod on the day.
The water level in the lake is just OK for sailing with raised centreboards following minimal rain in Melbourne since mid January and some bursts of hot weather since mid February including the scorcher on the Labour Day long weekend. We need rain for the Lake and its surrounding catchment area over the coming weeks .
