2016 Winter Series and Maritime Festival action

This note was intended to be a reminder about the 2016 Winter Series entry and some comments about members attending recent Maritime festivals.

What was intended to be a small note grew into the attached pdf.

Festivals covered are the:-

CYANZ Trillian Trust Regatta

2016 Geelong Wooden Boat Festival

Paynesville Classic Boat Rally

Queenscliff Maritime Museum Festival

The 2016 Winter Series entry and the Sandringham YC Centenary Trophy race eventually receive a mention.

So have a look, Lot’s of pic’s. Thanks to Ross Clark of Martini for supplying many of them.

Members who have pic’s, send them in. They can be installed on the CYAA Instagram page.

As a gentle reminder new member and membership renewal forms are also attached.

One other small note. The handicapper has been on the receiving end of about 60 issues of the Seacraft Magazine from the late 40’s and 50’s era. Lot’s of old time racing stories about the Classic’s we are racing today. Things like George Low’s Tumlaren Snow Goose being completely flattened and recovering from a big sideways knock while racing under full spinnaker during an around the bay race. More stories like this have been found. Frances features big time. There’s a great story about Sayonara running over a Sydney Harbour swing mooring used by shipping. Collating these stories will be a saga in itself.

Enough

Regards to all
