With a couple mast steps full of frozen water we didn’t get out on the water but a number of members showed up and had a great conversation and toast the new year in the beautiful sunshine of January 1st on Porpoise Bay.

It’s not the end of sailing season or Summer… yet. But we decided to have a BBQ on the dock while the weather is still nice and we can sit and enjoy the sunshine.

MAKE UPDATE! SEPTEMBER 9TH!

Here is are details:

Date: Sept 9th 
Sailing: 1pm – 3pm (roughly)
BBQ: 4pm – 6pm (roughly)
Cost: $5 For burger and refreshments.

Any revenue will go back into the sailing association fund.

This is not a regatta so club rules will apply.

Why do we call it the broken tiller BBQ?
Well Robert broke his tiller during a regatta one year and he though it was a cool name for a sailing BBQ.
