Hey Lyndon,

Look forward to seeing you out in your formula board. With the summer Raceboard series being over I'm keen to ride a few different boats eg. My Lechner.)

Racing in Sydney was great, rich but great and I placed well 4th for the regatta including a 3rd in the last race :) that result gave me 4th in the Summer series (only 1 point off 3rd for the series) so pretty happy with the results. Hopefully next summer we can get a Raceboard heat at Gosford.

Well done John , great result. Got out around 2pm on Sat, had a bit of a chat to the guy on the one design.Got caught in a couple of the torrential down pours, the Etchells were only 50 metres away but could not see them. Wind speed seem to fluctuate from 5 to 25 knots depending on the rain squalls

Do you know who the guy on the One Design was? It wasn't by any chance Clyne Gowland? He used to Race at Gosford back in the 1980's (good sailor). I hope you managed to convince him to join us on Saturdays :)

With any luck we'll all be able to make it this Saturday. See you all soon.

Just looked at Saturdays forecast. Looks like the serenity might get a run.

Last Saturday turned out to be a light but enjoyable afternoon on my Lechner.

Well done to Peter D (F2 Lightning) and Lyndon (Starboard Serenity) who smashed out a 1st and a 2nd with the lead changing a number of times. Nice to see some close racing going on up the front.

Next Saturday will be the last day of Racing for the summer season at Gosford Sailing Club, the long range forecast is looking like 10-15 knots, which would be a perfect way to finish the season. I hope everyone can make it for the last race of the season, and hopefully a few drinks in the club afterwards.

Anyone from other clubs is more than welcome to join us, it'd be great to have a larger sailboard fleet for the last heat of the year. Any board with any sail is more than welcome.

See you all Saturday, as usual briefing in the club at 1pm, Sailboards starting at around 2:20pm.
