MBSC Season Finale

It is all over for this season at MBSC. A hand full of Sharpies made it onto the water in the very light and very variable northerly, westerly sometimes easterly breeze. Mainie probably had the right idea and sailed home mid race. With the Sharpie bar transformed into a wild west saloon a good crowd rocked up to spill plenty of beer and wine on the lawn while watching and endless stream of punters riding the Bucking Bull. A brave group of revellers were still kicking around 2am!!!!!!

Up coming events:

WASSA, AGM Date tba (Time to start arranging WA’s next Sharpie Nationals!!!!!)
Opening Days around September/October after another winter in the paddock.

To be fair I wont mention Craigs good starts so here are the results

1st Suicide Blonde
2nd The Uninvited
3rd Suburban Boys

This week is the last race of the season being the last club heat, all to play for on this one, Suburban Boys hold a slender lead from Suicide Blonde and The Uninvited with the resultant champion being decided on the final siren,good luck to all.

Get well soon to Brownie who went under the surgeons knife yesterday for some repair work on his elbow (claims he wore it out working the sheet so much) Pete and Craig think it had frozen from inactivity. Must point out that brownie does not have a computer. Suicide needs to find a fill in for the week end.

till next week
cheers
