Sandgroper had there first club get together at Falcon to plan out the forth coming season. Plenty of new ideas came forward that will keep the club on track. This season for the first time we will be running three classes with the numbers building in each class. It was great weekend with plenty of stories (some stretched a little) Thanks to all who attended and a special thanks to the ladies for putting on a great meal, and to Adam for making the house aviable for the weekend. I will post the program for next season when it is finalised
Cheers

What a fantastic day, plenty of dedicated members turned up to lend a hand with the busy be and after all the formalities were over there was plenty of good sailing to be had. Next week is the first Scratch Race meet of the year so make sure you are ready to go and if you want to be in the running at the end of the year you need to be there.

What a great turn out for the first scratch race meet of the season. The wind was SW, SSW and then S ranging from 10 - 20 knots. A great day was had by most with a few members experiencing so minor and also major breakages. Overall it was a fantastic day and everyone is now looking forward to next weeks Club Championship which will be the first for the season. Please enjoy the results and a few photos from todays proceedings.

Well what a day mother nature turned on for the first Club Championship race weekend. We completed 8 races for all the classes due to the wind being a healthy and strong 24-27 Knot SW/SSW with plenty of Yachts struggling to stay on all three wheels. There was plenty of great close racing and some serious speeds throughout the day. Please enjoy the results and a few photos from todays proceedings.

Ron Fauntleroy couldn't resist the 25-27 knot SW winds today and was out to get that much needed adrenalin rush after the Xmas festivities.

Yesterday was the first Handicap Race day of the season and proved very challenging for some and provided plenty of entertainment due to the strong 20-23 knot SSW winds gusting to 27. There was quite a few failures and breakages in all classes throughout the day which added to the excitement. A great day was had by all and we certainly got our adrenalin fix for the day.

The spectators had plenty to look at with some close calls and the occasional bump and rub throughout the day with some trying 15-20 knot SW winds with gusts up to 25 knots. There was plenty of great racing and fun had by all. The results are as follows:

The second Club Championship Race weekend of the season was held yesterday and yet again we had another fantastic turnout with 23 Yachts in attendance. The weather has definitely played it's part so far this season with consistently strong winds each week. Yesterday we had a 20-26 knot SSW wind with gusts up to 30 knots. There was plenty of great racing and a few high performers who have come good just in time for the WA State Titles next week. A great day was had by all and the results are as follows:

For the first time this season the sailors experienced some very trying conditions yesterday. With fluky (to say the least) E, SE and at times tending S winds ranging anywhere between 0-15 knots in between constantly shifting making for some very interesting races and trying the patience of most pilots. At times you would be at a total standstill while other Yachts would go screaming past you at mach one. You really had to think about what was going on and hope you had luck on your side as well. Even though it was a very trying day we all still had a good time and plenty of yarns to tell at the end of the day. The results for the days proceedings are as follows:

Class 5
Club 88


5.6 Mini

The Annual Memorial Trophy Day was held today in fresh 13-18 Knot Easterly winds. It was an excellent course with a few challenging sections which actually caught a few people out but there is nothing like keeping you on your toes. It was another fantastic day's sailing and the results are as follows:

Class 5/Club 88

Today was the 3rd Scratch start weekend of the season with 15 keen and enthusiastic sailors ready to show their wears. The light 6-8 knot NW, WNW, W, WSW and SW winds remained pretty steady throughout the day even though the breeze wanted to shift about a bit. It made for an excellent days racing with a few new names up the pointy end and some regular front runners struggling a little. All in all it was a fantastic day and fun had by all. The results are as follows:

Class 5
