Summer Series Sail No. 14 – Thursday 1st December 2022

AM Sailors,

Well, believe it or not, we’ve finally made it; it’s Summer!  And it looks like it should be another perfect day for a sail.  Yes, I know I’ve said it before and look what’s happened.  But don’t take my word for it, go look out the wiindow.  Start times are the same as they would have been last week.  And we have a new boat on the start list and joining the AM fleet; welcome back to AM sailing Rob, with your new International 2.4 Metre boat “Billicart” (...and please folks, no more cracks about “where’s the remote?” or “where does the ‘wind-up key’ go?”.  I’m sure Rob’s heard them all before!  )

Weather Forecasts –Thursday 1st December 2022:

–  Bureau of Meteorology

–   WillyWeather

–   Windy

– Or check the Bureau’s “BOM Weather” app on your Smartphone.

I propose Course no: 29 (10.1 NM) for today’s sail, which should offer an opportunity for some gentle windward work between Bluff Head and Pt Wilson and again between Tiger Pole and Aurora 1 in the forecast moderate SSE wind.  Course and start times are (hopefully) attached.

Our support team today are again: Alastair on radio and watch in the tower, Alan, Kaye and John on “Judy G” and Mark and Jenny are behind the bar.   Luv your work, guys! 🙂

The after-sail ‘debrief’ is, as usual, in the Hall.

Please note, the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) still recommends that you consider wearing a mask when outside your home and especially when in crowded, indoor environments.

See you on the water.
