Fun for all on Commodores Day

I'm sure those that attended will agree that the Commodores Days was excellent fun. Plenty of nice weather, games, sailing fun, food and prizes all round.

Everyone was able to enjoy a bit of boat swapping (and buying for some), a game of rounders (there were a few surprised faces when it was mentioned it would take place on the water. Rafting, canoeing, racing and of course the bottle race (although the wind made it an interesting game).

It was a day to learn a few new skills for some, new experiences for others and for most to just get very wet.

The day would not have been possible without all the great help from members such as Glenis, Mary, Jo, Mick, Gerard, Patrick, Gren and the team, Neil, Howard, Trevor and others. But the day would have been boring without the participants. So a big thank you all round.

The fun continues next weekend with Push the Boat Out. It will start at 1pm with a lunch for members (bring a contribution in kind or in money) then The first race will be at 2pm for the New Comers Race (experienced hands are welcome to help). Then Olympic style racing. Don't forget that prizes will be given for the race competitors and those that dress their boat the best in an Olympic country of their choice. The evening will end with a BBQ (bring your own).

Sunday brings a racing day of 6 short races, so get yourself along to have a chance to win big.
