'Back to Bunbury' road trip

Craig, has already mentioned this, but don't forget that Saturday November 9th is Opening Day at Koombana Bay Sailing Club in Bunbury and we're hoping for a good showing of sharpies please.

KBSC Treasurer Warren Drew's bought a sharpie and the WA Sharpie Association is keen to see the class - which was one of the founding classes at Koombana Bay - back in action there. They've been off the water too long down Bunbury way, the club down there is clearly supportive and it would be great to see the class kick-started there again, especially in our Nationals season.

A little support from us will make all the difference. It'll be a day out or an overnighter for the metro guys, and a half-hour run up the road from Busselton for the GBYC brigade. So.........can I have an indication please if you can make it? Paul Main's got the ball rolling and has commtted to taking his boat down.
