Hi All
 
On Sunday we had the 6 hour endurance race, unfortunately the attendance was low but there are two sailors that need a special mention!. Both are new Oppie sailors and they showed great courage and determination in completing most of the 6 hours. Well done and congratulations to Calvin Gibbs (1st place) and Mathew Thorburn (2nd place)!
 
A big thank you to all the members that helped with the flag pole last Saturday, there was a good turn-out (Craig was excused after having walked the plank the previous evening!). Alex has kindly offered to do the final paint this week. Our aim will be to hoist the pole again this Sunday.
 
Just a reminder that the TGIF this Friday is cancelled.
 
There are several changes to the calender as published, these changes have been forced on us due to the WC Champs date change. Will all members please note the following schedule;
 
April 4th           No racing, possibly a casual sailing day and a bring and braai or picknick.
 
April 11th.        IYC Championships, races 1-4.
 
April 18th.        IYC Championships, races 5-8.
 
April 24-27th    WP Championships at Saldanha Bay.
 
May 2nd.         Chedburn Persuit races 1-4
 
This Sunday is a Mini series sponsored by BELLA PIZZA, there will be pizza vouchers to be won on the day, there are also trophys awarded to the winners of each class that sails, these are awarded at the end of the season.
 
See you on the water this Sunday!
