gbyc last six weeks

Hi all

Once again appolagies for my tardiness, usual excuses work ect!!
Racing at GBYC continues on with the same level of close racing that we have enjoyed all year with mozz and crew on the uninvited taking out the last two races.
Suicide blonde took out the four before that and suburban boys with a string of seconds and a third. What is exciting is the distance between the boats is only 50 to 100 metres at the finish.
With only one club heat to run suburban boys look to have it in the bag although a slim chance for suicide to take it out dependant on the results.

Next season is shaping up to be a cracker with six boats likely to hit the water each week so all is well.

The fleet should be made up of the current three Suicide, Suburban and Uninvited
Bullit is ready to return full time congrats to Kym and Heath on taking out the sports boats nationals in Hobart over easter

Craig F has purchased spiny norman, renamed it norma and has Anton confirmed as crew

Dean has deserted mozz and purchased Woosy nook wines and called it Rogered busy refirbishing for the start of the season

Pete simpson is talking off bringing his out of mothballs as well for odd races
hopefully with more boats enjoying close fleet racing a few cruiser blokes may have a crack as well. Also a group of juniors are looking for life after pelicans so hoefully we can entice a few to come across.

Our last race of summer season is on the 28th and is a short course series where we hope to get as many boats as we can muster and throw a few of the juniors in to give an insite into what we are about, All are welcome let me know if you are keen

thats all for the moment
will report in next week with a wrap of the club heats
good sailing
