Welcome all to 2021 ... this is going to be a much better year!

I am sorry that I was unable to attend the Christmas Party but thank you to Andrew Campbell for taking over and to all the committee for their great work in organising and holding the event.  We were unable to hold many events in 2020 so you all deserved a good day for Christmas and it wouldn’t have been a party without your attendance, particularly those who travelled from outside the metro area... Russ and Margaret Hurren, Colin and Jan Hunt - always good to have your support.

We had a sailing day on 17 January at APYC and we had a small attendance, but it gave us the opportunity to get Begonia into the water, and with Leigh and Graham aboard she sailed well.  In fact, if she was fitted with a trapeze, Leigh would have used it at one stage.

Your committee will be arranging an exciting schedule of events for the coming year so watch for notifications and reminders.

Best wishes to everyone for 2021.
